(1) operation requirements and maintenance
The CO2 laser needs to be adjusted for light, and the effect of the adjustment of the optical path will affect the quality of the cut, so the operator must have certain skill requirements and require the maintenance of the external light road.The thermal lens effect of YAG solid laser is obvious and needs to be maintained frequently.Optical fiber laser optical fiber transmission, no adjustment, maintenance, high stability, easier operation.
(2) cutting speed and effect
Fiber laser cutting speed is the same power CO2 laser 2-3 times, especially in sheet metal cutting, fiber laser cutting machine cutting speed has obvious advantages in the three kinds of laser cutting machine.Optical fiber laser cutting machine beam quality is good, cutting gap small, cutting edge level.
(3) materials applicability and application industry
More material broad applicability, CO2 laser and fiber laser for metal materials including aluminum, copper such as the applicability of the reflective material, more in line with sheet metal manufacturing, 3 c electrical appliances industry, new energy industry processing requirements.
(4) energy consumption and comprehensive cost
The photoelectric conversion rate of the optical fiber laser is more than 30%, the photoelectric conversion rate of the same power CO2 laser cutting machine is about 10% ~ 15%, and the photoelectric conversion rate of the solid laser is 3%.The fiber laser consumes only 20 to 30% of the power of the CO2 laser, and the overall cost is lower.
Optical fiber laser cutting is more precise, focusing focus on 25um, the thermal effect area is small, the cut is small, the workpiece is small.As a kind of flexible manufacturing mode, fiber laser can be combined with automatic control system, realize the automatic tracking, automatic edge, automatic nesting, greatly enhance the production efficiency, it is widely used in sheet metal cutting, a more excellent performance, can better meet the requirements of precision cutting process.At present in the sheet metal cutting applications, fiber laser has replaced quite a number of CO2 laser and YAG solid state laser, the future development of high power fiber laser breakthrough could speed up the alternative trend.
