In recent years, laser cutting technology has been applied more and more widely in metal cutting and non-metal cutting industries. The fiber laser cutting technology is already quite mature in current metal processing industry and takes a very large market share. But there are still many users being not clear about how to choose a suitable fiber laser cutting machine for their business. In the following part MORN LASER will talk about how to choose a fiber laser cutting machine from 6 aspects.
1. Learn about your materials:
Before making a purchase, you should consider the scope of your business – the material types that need to be cut, the thickness of cutting materials, and then determine the power and size of the equipment that can fit your work need. Currently, the power of fiber laser cutting machines on the market ranges from 500W to 8000W. And the size of the workbench can be customized by fiber laser cutting machine manufacturers according to your applications.
2. Selection of fiber laser cutter manufacturers:
After determining the cutting requirements, you can go to the market to learn about the equipment or go to a local user who has purchased a fiber laser metal cutting machine to personally check the performance and basic parameters of the machine. It’s recommended that you could select several companies with rich manufacturing experience and competitive prices to conduct further communication and make samples. In the later period, you can have an on-the-spot inspection and conduct more detailed discussions on cutting parameters, machine price, operation training, payment method, and after-sales services.
3. The range of fiber laser power:
When considering fiber laser cutting machine performance, we should fully consider its work capability and the range of laser power. For example, if you often cut the metal sheets of no more than 6mm, then a 500W-700W laser cutting machine can meet the production demand; if you want to cut materials of more than 6mm, then you should consider a larger laser power, which helps the cost control of your company.
4. The core parts of fiber laser cutting machine:
Some important parts of fiber laser metal cutter need special attention when choosing a fiber laser equipment. In particular, laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc., must be clearly distinguished, because these components have a direct influence on the cutting speed and precision of the equipment. Even some untruthful manufacturers will use domestically produced accessories to replace imported accessories to deceive customers.
5. Evaluate the quality and stability of fiber laser cutter:
Now the product development cycle is short, and product upgrade is faster and faster. How to ensure the quality and quantity of customer orders, maintain corporate reputation, and enhance the competitiveness of enterprises is an arduous task for each manufacturer. Try to choose the brands with high product quality, work stability, and sound after-sales service system. Do not choose low-quality products with no after-sales service just because of its lower prices, which will have a huge impact on your production output and quality.
6. Reliable and professional after-sales service:
Each manufacturer’s after-sales service varies widely, and the length of the warranty is also different. Professional after-sales service not only provides customers with an effective daily maintenance program, but also has a professional training system to help customers get started as soon as possible. Users will encounter various problems during processing. When encountering problems that customers cannot deal with, it is particularly important that the manufacturer can provide timely solutions. This also is a key factor that you need to consider when purchasing a fiber metal laser cutting machine.
