The metal tube & sheet laser cutting machine is mainly used for laser processing machines that cut sheets into workpieces of the desired shape. The metal sheet laser cutting machine is a device that uses the thermal energy of a laser beam to cut. It has high precision and fast cutting speed; it is not limited by cutting pattern; automatic material saving saves materials; smooth cutting; low processing cost. And it will gradually improve or replace traditional metal cutting equipment. You may want to know how much electricity it will use, so let's take a look at its electricity consumption.

What is laser cutting?


Laser cutting is the energy released by laser beam irradiated on the surface of the workpiece, which makes the workpiece melt and evaporate to achieve the purpose of cutting and carving. It has the advantages of high precision, fast cutting speed, unrestricted by cutting mode, automatic typesetting, material saving and smooth cutting. Traditional cutting equipment will be gradually improved or replaced by low processing costs.


How is its electricity consumption calculated?


I believe that you also know that the power consumption of each laser cutting machine is uncertain. After all, the applicable range and power consumption of different machines will be different. But we can know how to calculate its electricity consumption. We only need to know the power cost and the maximum power consumption to calculate its electricity consumption and its electricity cost.


Let's assume a maximum power of 1569 watts, assuming your electricity cost is $0.08. In fact, these are all based on your actual situation.

The formula is: (wattage x power cost / 1000) x time (hours) = 1 hour laser operating cost

Calculated according to the assumed power and power cost:

(1569 x 1.2 yuan) / 1000 x 1 = 1.8828 yuan

Then your power consumption per kWh is 1569 is your maximum power, the operating cost of your metal plate or metal tube laser cutter is only 1.8828 yuan. But still have to be calculated according to the actual situation. But I believe that the low cost of running the laser cutter will also successfully attract you.


What are its advantages?


(1) Good cutting quality

Laser cutting can achieve better cutting quality due to the small laser spot, high energy density and fast cutting speed.

(2) High cutting efficiency

Due to the transmission characteristics of the laser, the laser cutting machine is generally equipped with multiple numerical control worktables, and the entire cutting process can realize numerical control.

(3) Fast cutting speed

The material does not need to be clamped and fixed during laser cutting, which saves the fixture and saves the auxiliary time of loading and unloading. 

(4) Non-contact cutting

There is no contact between the torch and the workpiece during laser cutting, and there is no tool wear. The laser cutting process has low noise, low vibration and no pollution.


Sheet metal laser cutting machines are not only suitable for metal plates and metal pipes, but also for stainless steel, carbon steel, galvanized sheets, electrolytic plates, brass plates, aluminum plates, manganese steel, various alloy plates, rare metals, etc. quick cutting.
