Comparison of fiber laser cutting machine and CO2 laser cutting machine

- Jul 15, 2019-

1. Processing cost to compare: CO2 laser splitter (purpose: metal cutting, non-metal cutting) not only produces gas consumption, but also photoelectric conversion rate of 8%-10%. The fiber laser cutting machine does not require any other consumption when processing, and its photoelectric conversion rate can reach 30%, which is more energy-saving and energy-saving.


2. Equipment maintenance cost: The maintenance cost of CO2 laser splitter (used: metal cutting, non-metal cutting) is huge, not only the front mirror tail mirror is expensive, but also the life of the turbine bearing is only 8000 hours, and the replacement cost (expense ) reached 80,000 yuan per pair. However, the fiber laser cutting machine is maintenance-free, basically free of consumables, and can be used in harsh working environments, with high tolerance to dust, shock, humidity and temperature.


3. From the technical point of view: CO2 laser splitter laser structure is complex, high maintenance costs, and the processing is a large beam divergence, not suitable for large-format processing. Although the slit is relatively thin, it is very slow when processing thick plates. However, the laser characteristics of fiber laser cutting machines are characterized by miniaturization, intensification, high brightness and high conversion rate. They are processed in thin plates (properties: gemological terms), and the same power (how much work is done in an object per unit time). The fiber laser cutting machine has a cutting speed of 2-3 times higher than that of CO2, and the cutting section is smooth.
