What are the advantages of laser cutting machine in sheet metal industry?

Laser cutting machine is the laser emitted from the laser, through the optical path system, focused into a high power density laser beam.The beam of a laser cutter hits the surface of the workpiece, bringing it to the melting or boiling point, while high-pressure gases coaxial with the beam blow away the melted or vaporized metal.

As the beam moves relative to the workpiece, the material finally forms a slit, so as to achieve the purpose of cutting.


Laser cutting is to replace the traditional mechanical knife with invisible beam, with high precision, cutting fast, not limited to cutting patterns, automatic typesetting save material, smooth incision, low processing cost, will gradually improve or replace the traditional metal cutting process equipment.The mechanical part of the laser cutter head has no contact with the workpiece, so it will not scratch the surface of the workpiece in work.The laser cutting speed is fast, the incision is smooth and level, and there is generally no need for follow-up processing;The cutting heat affected area is small, the plate deformation is small, the slit is narrow (0.1mm~0.3mm);The incision has no mechanical stress and no shear burr.High machining precision, good repeatability, no damage to the material surface;Numerical control programming, can be processed arbitrary planar, can be a large format of the whole board cutting, no need to open the mold, economical and time-saving.

Laser processing technology plays an important role in sheet metal processing, which improves the productivity of sheet metal processing and promotes the development of sheet metal processing.Laser cutting machine has high flexibility, can greatly reduce the processing cycle, cutting speed, high efficiency, improve the processing precision, accelerate the development of products, these advantages have been paid attention to by many manufacturing enterprises.
