Gantry Laser Cutting Machine

A laser metal cutting machine uses the laser beam emitted from the laser generator to focus on the laser beam irradiation condition of high power density through the external circuit system. The laser heat is absorbed by the workpiece material and the workpiece temperature rises sharply. After reaching the boiling point, the material begins to vaporize and form holes, as the relative position of the beam and the workpiece moves, will eventually form a slit in the material.

The technological parameters (cutting speed, laser power, gas pressure, etc.) and movement trajectory during slitting are controlled by the CNC system, and the slag at the slit is blown off by the auxiliary gas with a certain pressure. During laser-cut metal, auxiliary gas suitable for the material to be cut is also added. When cutting steel, oxygen must be used as an auxiliary gas to produce an exothermic chemical reaction with the molten metal to oxidize the material, while helping to blow away the slag in the slit. For metal parts with high processing accuracy, nitrogen can be used as an auxiliary gas in the industry.

 Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Metal

Gantry Laser Cutting Machine

Gantry metal laser cutting machines typically use fiber lasers as the laser source. Fiber lasers are well-suited for metal cutting due to their high power and excellent beam quality. They can efficiently cut through various metals, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper.

The power of the laser source determines the cutting speed and the maximum thickness of the metal that can be cut. Higher-power lasers can cut thicker metals at faster speeds.

The cutting bed of a gantry metal laser cutting machine is typically designed to withstand the weight and heat generated during the metal cutting process. It may have a durable table surface, such as a slat table or a honeycomb structure, to support the metal sheets or plates being cut.

Gantry metal laser cutting machines are controlled by a CNC system that interprets cutting instructions from design software and controls the movement and operation of the machine. The software used for programming and controlling the machine often includes features specific to metal cutting, such as parameter optimization for different types and thicknesses of metals.

Metal laser cutting machine has fast cutting speed, good cutting quality, high precision, simple operation, safety and stable performance. It has extremely high adaptability and flexibility. Using CNC system, complex patterns can be processed on metal plates. Metal and advanced processing technology, this combination of new and old, also makes metal crafts glow with unprecedented charm.

Dual-Purpose Laser Cutter for Metal Sheet & Tube

The specific advantages of laser cutting machine applied to metal lighting processing industry are: laser cutting technology belongs to non-contact processing, which uses high-density laser beam to irradiate the workpiece surface to realize melting, and the high-pressure gas blows away the slag to complete the cutting action. The whole process belongs to numerical control processing, without contact and deformation. The laser cutting machine is completely free from the limitation of pattern complexity. It has very fast processing speed, high precision and beautiful cutting end face. It can process the original cool metal materials into artistic patterns. With the effect of light, the metal patterns are more refined and high-end.

Key Features of Metal Sheet, Pipe, and Tube Laser Cutting Machine

  1. A metal sheet, pipe, and tube laser cutting machine is a specialized tool used in the manufacturing and metalworking industry for precisely cutting various types of metal materials. This machine uses a high-powered laser beam to cut through the metal, offering several advantages over traditional cutting methods, such as precision, speed, and the ability to cut intricate and complex designs. Here are some key features and aspects of a metal sheet, pipe, and tube laser cutting machine: Laser Source: The heart of the machine is the laser source, which typically uses either fiber laser or CO2 laser technology. Fiber lasers are popular for their high energy efficiency and ability to cut a wide range of metals, while CO2 lasers are suitable for non-metal materials and some metal cutting applications.
  2. CNC Control: The machine is equipped with computer numerical control (CNC) technology, which allows for precise control of the laser head’s movement and cutting parameters. This ensures accurate and repeatable cuts.
  3. Cutting Capabilities:Metal Sheets: These machines can cut flat metal sheets, such as steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. They are often used for creating parts for various industries, including automotive, aerospace, and electronics. Pipes and Tubes: Some laser cutting machines are equipped with rotary axes that enable the cutting of cylindrical or tubular metal objects like pipes and tubes. This is common in industries like construction, HVAC, and furniture.
  4. Precision and Accuracy: Laser cutting machines provide high levels of precision and accuracy, with minimal heat-affected zones, which reduce the risk of material distortion.
  5. Versatility: These machines can cut various thicknesses of metal, from thin sheets to thick plates, depending on the laser source’s power and the machine’s configuration.
  6. Speed and Efficiency: Laser cutting is generally faster than traditional cutting methods, making it more efficient for high-volume production.
  7. Automation: Some machines are equipped with automatic loading and unloading systems, which further enhance productivity by reducing manual labor.
  8. CAD/CAM Integration: Laser cutting machines are often integrated with computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software, allowing users to design parts and convert those designs into cutting programs.
  9. Safety: Laser cutting machines incorporate safety features such as enclosures, exhaust systems, and safety interlocks to protect operators from laser radiation and fumes.
  10. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential to keep the machine operating at peak efficiency. This includes cleaning the optics, inspecting and replacing consumable parts, and ensuring proper alignment.
