Explore the advantages of laser cutting and some of its boundaries

Laser cutting machines can cut  metal plate, sheet or even pipe and tube profiles .

Laser cutting is an extremely accurate cutting technique,very popular and widely used.

Very Limited risk of material deformation because of the smaller heat-affected zone.

Fiber Laser cutting is a very fast and very productive cutting process,high efficiency

Laser cutting machines are computer-controlled machines with a high level of automation, which limit the need for operator interface – less operators needed ,or unmanned systems.

Laser cutting accuracy and precision produce very narrow kerf, providing closer nesting of parts, resulting in minimum material waste.advanced laser tube cutting machine can do zero end left.

Laser cutting machines cut without generating noxious fumes.

Here are limitations or bundaries for fiber laser cutting machine:

Laser cutting is typically used for thinner materials, laser tube cutting machine ,best accuracy of max wall thinkness no more than 6-8mm .

Flat bed Laser cutting is typically used for cutting without bevels. Consequently, many laser cutting machines either do not have bevel cutting capabilities or the capability is not a primary focus.of course some of cutting head can work 3D or wobble head. Bevels are allowed in cutting tubes.

Laser cutting machines are extremely expensive althouth lower price year by year, making the investment high enough so that running only one production shift is not nearly enough for fabricators to realize a speedy return on their investment (ROI).If the local metal fabrication industry is not so well-developed ,not easy to get back the investment in short period.

Laser cutting machines are becoming more and more common and there are more and more job shops with laser cutting machines in any given manufacturing area.contract laser processing serivice is no longer badly needed and higher processing service charges. Consequently, the market is becoming more competitive, resulting in lower outsourcing costs, which in-turn makes the return on any purchase investment that much more difficult to pay back.

Laser cutting machine costs are relatively high because of the following:

High costs to purchase the laser cutting machine.

Higher energy consumption.for example 1kw machine power draw may reach 13kw ,1500W laser cutting machine 17kw ..a 3KW laser cutting machine max 28kw power draw....

Higher operating costs.asisted gas like N2 ,it is costly ,and lens consumption is not few.

While productivity on thinner materials may be extremely high, laser cutting becomes less effective as the material thickness increases.high power laser like 8Kw 10kw 12kw normally are used to seperate thick raw sheet up to 30mm-50mm carbon steel .20-30mm stainless steel. Highly reflective materials copper sheet ,brass sheet ,aluminum sheet .

Laser cutting machinery typically requires personnel with a higher level of technical and professional capability to perform maintenance work that is typically more least ,the operator has basic CAD drawing skills.. some control system from China may require less for operator ,7-10 days training may let a new worker be qualified to operator a fiber laser of Chinese cypcut control.
