How thick can a 500w fiber laser cutting machine cut?

The cutting performance of the fiber laser cutting machine is very good. The fiber cutter is considered to be the laser processing equipment with the fastest cutting effect in the field of metal sheet processing. However, different metals have different properties, so the fiber laser cutting machine has different processing effects on different metals.
In theory, the fiber laser cutting machine can cut an additional thickness of 1mm for every additional 100w of power. Therefore, the 500w fiber laser cutting machine should be able to cut 5mm metal materials. However, the actual situation is not the case. When the equipment is running, the electrical energy is converted into light energy and then into heat energy. There will be a certain energy loss during the process, so when the actual cutting, the ideal theoretical value cannot be reached. So, what is the cutting capacity of the 500w fiber laser cutting machine? Below we will share with you an actual cutting parameter based on years of experience (with the guarantee of cutting speed):
1. Copper, aluminum: it is a high-reflective material, which is more difficult to cut (damage to the laser, long-term cutting is not recommended), the general cutting thickness can reach about 2mm.
2. Stainless steel: the material is harder and harder to cut than carbon steel, and the general cutting thickness can reach 3mm.
3. Carbon steel: Because its carbon content is relatively high, the material is relatively soft, and it is relatively easy to cut, and the general cutting thickness can reach 4mm.
