In the era of CO2 laser cutting, the maximum laser power is limited to 6000W. The thickness of early fiber laser cutting plates was also limited to carbon steel within 20mm and stainless steel within 12mm. For thicker materials, fine plasma, wire cutting or waterjet cutting etc. Traditional processing technology. The first revolutionary change of 10,000-watt fiber laser cutting to the field of sheet metal processing is to continuously improve the thickness of different materials: aluminum alloy plates can reach 40mm, stainless steel plates can reach 50mm. With 12kW and 15kW fiber laser cutting machines With the successive launches, the thickness limit of material cutting will continue to be broken.
In addition to the increase in cutting thickness, the cutting efficiency of 10,000-watt laser cutting in the field of medium and thin plates is also improved by multiples. When cutting stainless steel plates with a thickness of 3 to 10 mm, the cutting speed of the 10 kW laser cutting machine is more than twice that of 6 kW; at the same time, the 10 kW laser cutting machine can achieve a fast bright surface of 18 to 20 mm / s in the cutting application of carbon steel Cutting is twice the speed of ordinary standard cutting; carbon steel within 12mm can also be cut with compressed air or nitrogen, and the cutting efficiency is six to seven times that of oxygen cutting carbon steel. The speed of improving the efficiency of high-power laser cutting sheet greatly exceeds people’s imagination in the past, which is also the main reason why high-power laser cutting machines are popular in the sheet metal market.
