Metal laser cutting machines have now become indispensable equipment in the industrial market, especially in the field of metal processing. So when using laser cutting equipment, it is important to choose the correct laser cutting machine power.
This article will take you through the laser cutter wattage chart and application fields of laser cutting machines, helping you fully understand laser cutting equipment.
What is laser cutting power ?
Laser cutting machine power refers to the power output of the laser equipment, generally in watts (W). The power has a great impact on the energy density of the laser beam, cutting speed, depth, and the cutting material, etc. Choosing the right power is therefore particularly important.
Factors affecting laser cutting power
Material type and thickness
Different materials have different power requirements, and it is necessary to choose the appropriate power according to the cutting requirements.
Cutting speed and quality
The higher the power, the faster the cutting speed, and it may also cause changes in the heat-affected area of the material, which we need to measure according to the actual situation.
Different powers have different cutting effects on the same plate, and higher power cuts have a greater depth. Lower power equipment may not cut through the plate.
Laser cutting head
Cutting heads and focusing lenses also have a great impact on the cutting effect. The service life and performance stability of cutting heads produced by different laser cutting head brands are different.
