There are many types of laser cutting machine, according to the cutting material can be divided into metal laser cutting machine and non-metal laser cutting machine, according to the laser type can be divided into fibre laser cutting machine, CO2 laser cutting machine, etc., according to the laser output power classification can be divided into high-power laser cutting machine, medium-power laser cutting machine, low-power laser cutting machine. Different types of laser cutting machines have different uses, next, Metmac will uncover some details for your better understanding !

I. What are the types of laser cutting machine ?

  1. According to the cut material type classification
    There are two types of metal laser cutting machine and non-metal laser cutting machine. This is very good to distinguish, generally need metal materials will use metal laser cutting machine, and cutting non-metallic materials will use non-metallic laser cutting machine.
  2. Classification by laser type
    According to the laser cutting machine laser type classification can be divided into fibre laser cutting machine, CO2 gas laser cutting machine, and has been eliminated YAG laser cutting machine three types. Now the mainstream type of laser cutting machine in the domestic market is fibre laser cutting machine.
  3. Classification according to the laser output power
    According to the classification of laser output power can be divided into high power laser cutting machine, medium power laser cutting machine, low power laser cutting machine three types. Different applications require different laser output power, in the industrial field, to high-power fibre laser cutting machine, while in the field of laser engraving, to medium-power laser engraving and cutting machine.
  4. According to the cutting plate width classification cutting plate width can be divided into standard and large format two types, so the laser cutting machine can also be divided into standard format laser cutting machine, large format laser cutting machine two types. Large format laser cutting machine X-axis cutting length of more than 8000mm, Y-axis cutting width of more than 2500mm, while the standard format cutting machine cutting area is generally 3000mmx1500mm, 4000mmx2000mm or so !
  5. Classification according to the geometry of the cutting plate
    Cutting plate type can be divided into flat plate and three-dimensional plate, flat plate is generally cut with a flat laser cutting machine, while three-dimensional plate can be cut with a robot laser cutting machine, three-dimensional five-axis laser cutting machine for cutting and processing
  6. According to the cutting machine structure form classification
    According to the cutting machine structure form classification can be divided into cantilever laser cutting machine and gantry laser cutting machine two kinds. Cantilever laser cutting machine adopts open structure, easy loading and unloading, and lower cost, by the small and medium-sized owners of the welcome. Gantry laser cutting machine adopts bilateral drive mode, good dynamic performance, high cutting efficiency, stable and reliable long-term operation.
  7. Classification according to the size of the laser cutting machine
    Classified by the size of the laser cutting machine can be divided into small laser cutting machine and large laser cutting machine, general advertising signs, metal crafts and other industries use small laser cutting machine, large laser cutting machine is mainly used in the rice gold processing, aerospace, machinery manufacturing and other industries.

II. What are the uses of laser cutting machine ?

  1. The use of metal laser cutting machine
    Metal laser cutting machine has many uses, it can be non-contact cutting of metal plates, tubes, especially suitable for cutting stainless steel plate, iron plate and other materials, a variety of high hard and brittle alloy with excellent processing results. In addition can also be used for metal laser engraving, printing and other fields.
  2. The use of non-metallic laser cutting machine
    Non-metallic laser cutting machine can be used to cut materials other than metal, non-metallic laser cutting machine with high precision, cutting fast, not limited to cutting pattern restrictions. Commonly, there are fabric laser cutting machine, leather laser cutting machine, electronic laser cutting machine and so on.

Conclusion

Different kinds of laser cutting machines have their own characteristics and application scope. Generally speaking, fibre laser cutting machine has higher processing precision and speed, which is suitable for fine processing and high speed cutting of various metal and non-metal materials; carbon dioxide laser cutting machine is suitable for cutting of various metal materials; solid laser cutting machine is suitable for precision processing and thin plate cutting.
