What Material can the Fiber Laser Cutting Machines Cut?

CNC fibre laser cutting machine is widely used in various industries and the whole machine is stable and reliable, with good dynamic performance and strong load capacity. Industrial CNC laser cutting machine can cut various types of metal, from stainless steel, carbon steel to . Highly reflective metals. The maximum thickness of the cut metal will also vary depending on the laser power. In this article, Hymson Laser will show you what materials the CNC metal laser cutter can and cannot cut.

Materials can cut:

● Stainless steel:

One of the alloy steels, usually containing 10 to 30 percent chromium.  Stainless steel has great corrosion resistance and  oxidation resistance to specific environment. Laser cutting machine is commonly used int he manufacturing industry. With strict control of the heat input in the laser cutting process, the heat-affected zone of the trimming can be restricted from becoming small, thereby effectively maintaining the good corrosion resistance of such materials.

Full touch screen operation, easy to operate, graphics operation function is clear, which helps to improve production efficiency.

● Remote diagnosis
The system of is equipped with remote diagnosis module, customers can contact Hymostar engineers about the equipment problems for remote assistance to solve.

● Real-time monitoring of equipment running status
The system integrates monitoring function, which can monitor the running state of the equipment in the maintenance interface, and monitor the alarm, moving shaft, laser, cutting head, workbench, gas path and I/O.

Samples- 25mm max thickness laser cutter :
Applicable Materials: Specially used for cutting 0.5~70MM stainless steel, 0.5~50MM carbon steel, 0.5~50MM aluminum, 0.5~25MM copper, as well as galvanized steel, electrolytic steel and silicon steel etc.

● Brass:

Non-ferrous metal like Brass can also be cut. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical and electrical properties. CO2 laser cutter cannot cut the copper because of its high reflectivity. However, fiber laser processing machines can cut it into thinner plates with its higher laser power.

● Aluminum:

Aluminum cutting is a melting cutting mechanism, and the auxiliary gas used is mainly used to blow away the molten product from the cutting area, and usually a better cut surface quality can be obtained. For some aluminum alloys, attention should be paid to prevent the occurrence of micro-cracks between the surface of the slit.

● Carbon Steel:

Each Metal pipe cutting machine of Hymson laser can cut square and round tubes, the main difference is the size of pipe diameter and cutting speed.
Modern laser cutting systems can cut carbon steel plates to 20 millimeters thick. The cutting seam of carbon steel can be controlled within a satisfactory width range by using the oxidation melting cutting mechanism, and the cutting joint of thin plate can be narrow to about 0.1mm.

● Plastic products

Acrylic, PMMA, and Lucite are all transparent plastics. When using laser cutting, you can ensure that the edge has a good finish.

● wood

All types of wood can be cut with a laser, but some oily woods may be ignited, so you should be careful when cutting.

● Paper and cardboard

Most of the sophisticated invitations cards that I see every day are made by laser cutting.
   Let's  MP-D Pipe fiber laser cutting machine as an example , to check what material and thickness can Hymson tube laser cutting machine cut.

Cutting Technology of fiber laser cutting machine tube:
▲ Leapfrog Cutting、Automatic Obstacle Avoidance、Lightning Cutting
▲ Rapid Perforation、Breakpoint Resume、Arbitrary Point Cut-in
▲ Gradual Speed Regulation in Tool Start、Aluminum Alloy Burr-free Cutting (Optional)
▲  Fly-cutting High Speed Cutting
Applicable Materials: Specially used for cutting Φ20MM~Φ180MM carbon steel and stainless steel round pipe , □20MM-□130MM carbon steel and stainless steel square pipe, waist-shaped pipe,oval pipe etc.

Materials can not cut:

The fiber laser cutting machine belongs to the processing category of metal laser cutting machine. Thus it cannot cut non-metal like stone, cloth or leather because the wavelength range of the fiber laser cutting machine is not within the absorption range of the above materials.

So it can only cut metal, can not cut non-metal such as cloth, leather, stone, etc. The reason is very simple. The wavelength range of fiber laser cutting machine is not within the absorption range of the above materials. And glass fiber, polyvinyl chloride, cannot be cut as well.
