How to choose the metal laser cutting machine

In recent years, fiber laser cutting technology has been widely used in metal cutting. Laser cutting machine technology has been quite mature in the cutting industry. But, in so many industries where there are so many metal laser cutting machine manufacturers, how should we choose? The following MC will show you some advice for fiber laser cutter machines.
1. Scope of demand for materials and businesses processed by enterprises
First of all, we have to think about the scope of our business: What metal materials we will work with? What is thickness of the metal materials? What size is our metal materials? And factors like these. Then choose the laser power of the equipment and the size of the worktable. At present, the power of laser cutting machine in the market is between 500W-12000W, and the general size of worktable can be customized according to the needs of customers.
2. Cutting sheet or tube or both?
On choosing the metal laser cutting machine, you should also confirm whether you’re going to cut sheet or tube, or both. If you only cut sheets, then choose the sheet metal laser cutting machine. If you only cut tubes, then choose a tube laser cutting machine. If you’re going to cut both metal sheet and tube, then we recommend the dual-use sheet and tube laser cutting machine, which is very cost-effective. However, we advise you to take into consideration the cutting proportion of sheet and tube respectively.
3. Cutting speed selection
The cutting speed of the laser cutting machine is selected according to the thickness of the cut sheet, and different cutting speeds will have a great impact on the quality of the laser cutting machine. Choosing the right cutting speed can not only improve the efficiency of the laser cutting machine but also obtain good cutting quality.
4. Main part of the fiber laser cutting machine
Some important parts of the laser cutting machine affect the overall performance of the machine, and we should also pay attention to it when we choose and purchase it. Fiber laser source, laser cutting head, servo motor, rail guide, cooling chiller and other parts all directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of laser cutting machine, so we need to pay attention to it. If all of them meet your needs, it will be a good machine to choose.

For most fabricators, purchasing a metal laser cutting machine is a major investment. It’s not only about the initial price you pay but the fact that the purchase will have a great impact on the whole fabrication process.
