The ways of choosing cnc plasma or cnc metal laser cutting machine
Cnc plasma cutting machine and cnc metal laser cutting machine are two types of metal cutter machine widely used in the world. How to choose a right cnc cutting machine when you want to cut the metal is unavoidable question.
Now we talk some about it.
Before you know how to choose them, you should know how they work. Cnc plasma metal cutting machine was developed in the 1950s for cutting of metals such as stainless steel, aluminum and copper uses electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from an electrical power source through a cnc plasma cutting torch to the material being cut. Normally, a cnc plasma arc cutting system has a power supply, an arc starting circuit, and a torch. The normal plasma power source we use is Hypertherm from America and Huayuan from China.
Cnc co2 Laser cutting machine emits the laser from optical maser, by light path system, focus as high power density of laser beam. Laser beam work on the material surface, reach melting point or boiling point. At the same time, high pressure gas will melt or gasify with coaxial light beam and blown away. The mostly we use IPG from German，Raycus from China.
First，they are different in cutting quality. CNC plasma cutting machine: good dip angle, small heat affective zone, almost no slag, perfect precision cutting. Cnc laser cutting machine: nice dip angle, small heat affective zone, almost no slag, Under the condition of the narrow camber can achieve good to excellent fine cutting effect; Among them,the biggest difference is dip angle.
Second, they are different in cutting capacity. CNC plasma cutting machine: very fast cutting speed when cut the all kind of thickness of the metal materials, extremely fast piercing speed.
Cnc laser cutting machine: Cutting torch can be quickly disconnected to improve efficiency. Extremely cutting speed will reach when cutting thickness less than 6mm Metal Materials. The thicker the metal is, the slower the cutting speed is; the thicker the metal is, the longer time the piercing will take. And not very good in cutting thick metal.
Then when you choose the metal cutting machine, you must think about the cost. Cnc laser cutting machine is expensive, but it is a high-tech cutting equipment with the highest precision and efficiency. CNC plasma cutting machine use the lowest cost (Each piece calculation).
