What is laser tube cutting services?
Tube laser cutting use high-frequency energy generated by a laser to cut pipe. It has the advantages of high cutting precision, fast speed, high flexibility, automatic mass production, etc. At present, the degree of mechanization in the manufacturing industry is getting higher and higher, and the application of pipe cutting machines is preparing to be accepted by more and more markets.
Types of tube cutter laser
With the increase in the demand for pipe cutting, many tube cutting machine manufacturers on the market have produced a variety of pipe cutting machine equipment. Most pipe cutting machines are divided into:
According to the type of chuck
- Single chuck laser pipe cutting
- Double chuck laser pipe cutting
- Three-chuck pipe laser cutter
- Four chuck laser pipe cutting machine
- Handheld laser pipe cutting machine
- Semi Automatic tube cutter laser
- Fully Automatic tube cutter laser
There are many types of cnc laser tube cutters, but the double chuck laser tube cutting machine is the most popular.
It is still a mainstream product in the market
How much does a tube laser cutter cost
Various brands of tube fiber laser cutting machine factories produce 1000W, 1500W, 2000W, 3000W, 6000W metal tube laser cutting. The effect of the brand is different, the equipment is different, and the price varies greatly. Typically, a tube laser cutting machine costs between $21,181.65 and $74,841.84.

Pipe laser cutting VS saw blade cutting
There are many cutting methods to complete various pipe processing in the pipe processing process. Now let’s look at the difference between tube cutting laser machines and traditional saws.
1. High speed:
The laser pipe cutting machine can cut quickly, within 1 minute, and has a high speed.
2. Cut out various graphics:
Flexible processing of various shapes, you only need to enter the cutting schedule into the tube laser cutting system for automatic cutting.
Saw cutting processing is not possible.
3. Batch processing possible:
The laser pipe cutting machine can easily perform false pipe positioning and cut 6, 9 and 12 meters long pipes easily.
Cutting with a saw blade requires very bulky fixtures, cumbersome procedures, complicated operations, and a lot of time.
4. High accuracy:
The tube cutter laser uses a software-controlled clamping system and can simultaneously complete multi-stage processing operations with high precision.
Traditional pipe cutting is done by hand and each cut piece is different.
5. One machine with multiple functions:
It can cut round pipes and dissimilar materials (square steel, flat steel, channel steel, square pipe).
It can also cut stainless steel, aluminum, alloy steel, aluminum alloy, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, silver, gold, titanium and other metal pipes, square pipes and three-dimensional cutting.
The correct way to use the laser pipe cutting machine
- Step 1:
Please turn on the power switch, press the button on the panel, and the system will work after it runs stably
- Step 2:
When the workpiece is fed into the feed frame, adjust it to the appropriate range to stop feeding the board
- Step 3:
If the workpiece is deformed, stop and check the reason
- Step 4:
If there is a fault, immediately cut off the main power supply and press the emergency stop button to stop and check
- Step 5:
Clean up the residue on the surface of the guide rail after work.
What is the strength of laser tube cutting services?
Laser cutting of pipes with a power of 1000 W less than 5 mm thick
2000W-4000W laser pipe cutting machine for pipe thickness from 5mm to 8mm
The 4000-6000W laser pipe cutter cuts pipes with a thickness of 8-12mm.
8000W-12KW steel tube laser cutting Cuts Highly Reflective Brass
If you buy a 6000W metal laser cutter, you can adjust the output increase to 2000W after cutting about 4mm, saving energy, electricity and cost.
FAQ About laser tube cutting services
How long does a metal pipe laser cutter last
The service life of the laser generator of the laser cutting tube can reach 100,000 hours; that is, it can work for 10 years. If the Nissan laser and cooler are in good condition, the service life of the pipe cutting laser can also be extended.
How to quickly laser cut square tube
- Fully automatic metal profile cutting machine with high efficiency but high equipment cost, suitable for fixed places, and can cut in batches.
- The cutting efficiency of a toothless saw is slightly lower, but the price of the equipment is low and it is easy to move.
- Using oxy-acetylene cutting, the “universal cutting machine” has great arbitrariness and wide adaptability. The edges are trimmed unevenly.
- CNC metal tube laser cutter, plasma cutting machine, wire cutting machine, “water jet” and other high-end methods.
How many watts of laser for cutting steel pipe
If you want to cut stainless steel pipes within 10mm, use the 3000W metal pipe laser cutting machine.
Although the 1500W laser tube cutter can cut 10mm thick stainless steel, it can also cut, but the power is very slow.
What file format is needed for a drawing of a pipe laser cutting machine
Drawings of metal tube laser cutters are available in CAD., It can be CAD or CorelDRAW, both of which can draw..
