First of all, the transmission mode of fiber laser cutting machine and CO2 metal laser cutting machine is different. Fiber laser is not transmitted through reflector like CO2, which makes fiber laser technology have no range limitation between reflector. Similarly, when compared with gas cutting systems of the same power, the system is more compact due to the ability to bend the fiber.
The fiber-optic laser cutting machine's electro-optic conversion efficiency far exceeds the CO2 metal laser cutting machine. Users can use the fiber laser cutting machine to achieve higher power efficiency, which is between 25% and 30%. It is the actual use of the laser cutting machine brand carbon dioxide cutting system. The rate is three to five times as much. The energy efficiency of the fiber laser cutting machine is improved by more than 90% compared to the carbon dioxide cutting system.
In terms of maintenance, the high-power CO2 metal laser cutting machine needs regular maintenance, such as the calibration of the mirror and the maintenance of the resonant cavity. The fiber laser cutting machine is maintenance-free.
Due to the short wavelength characteristics of fiber laser cutting machines, some non-conductive metallic materials, as well as brass and copper, are more likely to absorb fiber laser beams. Because the fiber laser beam is more concentrated and the light spot is smaller, the fiber laser cutting machine cuts faster when cutting thin and medium-thick plates. When cutting materials up to 6mm thick, the cutting speed of the 1.5kw fiber laser cutting system is equivalent to the cutting speed of the 3kw CO2 laser cutting system.
