With the popularity of laser cutting equipment, the competition in the laser processing industry is becoming increasingly fierce. How to improve efficiency and reduce costs has become a concern for most users. Today, we take 6000w laser cutting equipment and 12000w laser cutting equipment as examples to calculate which laser cutting equipment has a lower cost in terms of processing cost and processing efficiency.
2.12KW and 6KW laser cost comparison
From the above data, it can be seen that compared with the processing cost of 6000w laser cutting, the cutting cost of 12000w laser can basically be reduced by more than half. Among them, stainless steel has the largest advantage, followed by carbon steel and aluminum. When cutting stainless steel, the air is used as auxiliary gas, and the unit price is the lowest in processing cost, which can meet the requirements of products that do not require high cutting end faces.
3.Cutting speed comparison
From the tested cutting speed: when cutting carbon steel, the 12000w laser cutting speed is 87%-493% faster than the 6000w laser cutting speed; when cutting stainless steel, the 12000w laser cutting speed is faster than the 6000w laser cutting speed 163 %-289%; when cutting aluminum, the speed of 12000w laser cutting is 150%-213% faster than that of 6000w laser cutting.
From the perspective of overall economic benefits, the price of a 12000w laser cutting equipment is 30%-40% higher than that of 6000w laser cutting equipment, but the production efficiency is several times that of 6000w laser cutting equipment, and the processing cost is also higher than 6000w laser cutting equipment. It is reduced by more than half, which greatly reduces the processing time and processing cost of a single workpiece, and the processing effect is more excellent, which can create a value-multiplier effect for users.
Of course, specific issues need to be analyzed in detail. Users need to purchase processing equipment suitable for themselves and choose the processing method that suits them according to the actual needs of their own enterprises.
