You may know the advantages of the metal tube & sheet laser cutting machine, but it may not be too clear about its limitations. Because everything can't be perfect, then the perfect thing will have its own short board. Therefore, we can't just see the good side and not the bad side. Let's take a look at the limitations of the laser cutting machine, its advantages and its range of applications.

What are the disadvantages of laser cutting?

1. Its efficiency and power consumption will vary with different cross-section types and the nature of the laser, and in general, laser cutters generate significant energy consumption.

2. Buying a laser cutter can be very expensive and not affordable for everyone.

3. When laser cutting plastic parts, it may cause toxic gases due to high temperature, which may cause harm to the human body. This means that users need to have a well-ventilated room, which will cost more housing.

4. At the same time it can't cut all types of metal, like copper and aluminum can not use laser cutting.

5. Its productivity cannot be determined. Different materials, the thickness of the workpiece and the nature of laser cutting will lead to different productivity. Harder materials will be more difficult to cut, and thicker materials will be more difficult to cut, which will have a profound impact on the productivity of the cutter.

6. Sometimes, some materials will burn due to improper temperature and laser distance settings.

7. It may also cause workers to burn during maintenance and commissioning because they need to be in close contact with the machine, and may also cause great problems because they are unfamiliar.

What are the advantages of laser cutting?

1. It has high precision, fast running speed, narrow slit, small heat affected zone and smooth cutting surface without burr.

2. The laser cutting head does not touch the surface of the material and does not scratch the workpiece.

3. The slit is the narrowest, the heat affected zone is the smallest, the local deformation of the workpiece is small, and there is no mechanical deformation.

4. Processing flexibility is good. It can handle any graphics or cutting pipes and other shapes.

5. It is suitable for non-deformable cutting of various hardness materials such as steel plate, stainless steel, aluminum alloy plate and hard alloy.

What is the scope of application?

The laser cutting machine can cut steel pipes, stainless steel pipes, cast iron pipes, and the like. Widely used in sheet metal processing, aerospace, aviation, electronics, electrical, high-speed rail and subway parts, auto parts processing, grain machinery, textile machinery, engineering machinery, precision parts, ships, metallurgical equipment, elevators, household appliances, kitchen supplies, Tool processing, decoration, advertising and other metal materials processing and manufacturing industries.
