In daily life, we usually refer to metal pipes collectively as iron pipes, but in the field of pipe cutting, we have to distinguish whether the metal is carbon steel pipe, silicon steel pipe, stainless steel pipe, titanium alloy pipe or aluminum alloy pipe. Because different materials have different characteristics such as hardness, toughness, density, and high temperature resistance, how to choose the right laser pipe cutting machine power?
The laser has different effects on different metal materials. The laser power varies according to the metal material. For example, with the same thickness, the laser power for cutting carbon steel is lower than that of stainless steel, and the laser power for cutting stainless steel is lower than that of yellow. Copper power is small. In addition to the nature of the metal itself, the thickness is also closely related to the laser power. For the same metal tube, cutting power of 10mm is lower than cutting 20mm.
As for how to choose the right power, it should be decided according to the type, thickness, shape and other factors of the material to be cut. Therefore, when purchasing a laser pipe cutting machine, you must let the manufacturer know the characteristics of the material that needs to be cut. The best thing is to provide the pipe to the manufacturer for proofing.
At present, the mainstream laser pipe cutting machines on the market have many powers, ranging from 1000W to 15000W. The thickness of most processing manufacturers’ pipes is between 8mm-12mm. If you cut this thickness for a long time, it is recommended to choose 4000W-6000W laser pipe cutting machines. If it is brass with high reflection characteristics, it is recommended to use a laser tube cutting machine with 8000W or higher power. 2000W-4000W laser pipe cutting machine is recommended for thickness between 5mm-8mm. A lower thickness of 1000W is usually sufficient. It should be noted that if you buy a 6000W laser pipe cutting machine, when cutting materials with a small thickness of about 4mm, you can lower the output magnification and adjust it to 2000W for cutting, which saves energy and saves electricity and costs.
