Q: What materials can be processed by the fiber laser cutting machine?

A: Fiber laser cutting machine is one of the most widely used processing equipments in sheet metal processing. Because of its high processing efficiency and good processing effect, it is widely loved by sheet metal processing industry. However, many people have misunderstandings about the application of fiber laser cutting machine. It is believed that the performance of fiber laser cutting machine is good and the cutting speed is fast. It is certain that all materials can be cut. In fact, fiber laser cutting machines are not omnipotent.


The processing principle of the fiber laser cutting machine is that the high-energy laser beam acts on the material to be processed, and the processing material absorbs the laser energy to cause melting, vaporization, fracture and the like, and achieves the purpose of cutting.


The wavelength of the fiber laser cutting machine is usually 1.06um, which is easily absorbed by metals such as stainless steel and carbon steel. These two kinds of metals are also the main materials in sheet metal blanking, so the fiber laser cutting machine has been widely used in metal processing. . In addition, some highly reflective metal materials (such as copper and aluminum) can also be processed by fiber laser cutting machine, but special attention must be paid during processing. A "reflective" absorption device must be installed, otherwise the optical components will be damaged.


Fiber laser cutting machines are not easily absorbed by non-metals and cannot cut non-metallic materials such as cloth, leather, and acrylic. However, with the continuous development of laser technology, the power of the fiber laser cutting machine is breaking through to higher power, and the thickness of the processed metal material is also increasing. It is not excluded that the fiber laser cutting machine can also be used for the cutting of non-metallic materials.
