What Is A Fiber Laser Machine?
The working principle of fiber laser cutting is to focus the power of a high-power laser onto the surface of the material to be cut. The energy in the laser beam is absorbed to the surface of the material, and the energy of the laser is converted into heat, thereby melting or evaporating the material. In addition, gas is focused or blown into the cutting area to expel or blow away molten metal and vapor from the cutting path.
Benefits of fiber laser cutting system
Compared with traditional CO2 lasers, choosing a fiber laser cutting system will have many advantages. Due to its high-quality beam, fiber laser will enable you to cut, engrave, and mark various metal materials.
What Is A Plasma Cutting Machine?
Plasma cutting is the oldest form of cutting. Its history can be traced back to the 1950s and is an alternative to flame cutting. Plasma cutting is performed by jetting superheated ionized gas (ie plasma) from a nozzle toward the workpiece at a high speed. Then an arc is formed in the gas. The arc ionizes part of the gas, thereby forming a conductive channel for the plasma in the process. When the electricity from the torch travels down the plasma, it generates enough heat to melt through the workpiece. The plasma and compressed gas blow away the hot molten metal, causing the workpiece to separate.
Plasma cutting is a low-cost cutting that provides high speed and high precision through the melting process. Among them, a jet of ionized gas is used to melt the material and discharge it from the incision. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper, although other conductive metals can also be cut. Plasma cutting machines are usually used in manufacturing workshops, automobile maintenance, and repair, industrial buildings, etc. Like laser cutting machines, plasma cutting machines ultimately cut metal by melting it.
