A fibre laser cutting machine is a type of machinery that uses a high-power laser to cut through and shape a variety of materials by means of melting the material. Though these machines are already very efficient, there is always room for improvement. Read about how to improve the cutting efficiency of a fibre laser cutting machine below:
When referring to idling with regards to fibre laser cutting, we are talking about the motion between point A and point B where the laser is not cutting. The cutting efficiency of the fibre laser cutting machine can be improved by decreasing the idle time. The method used to decrease idle time is called the leapfrog. This is when the laser jumps from point A to point B, ascending and descending respectively in order to decrease the idle.
There are different requirements for the laser setting – in terms of its focus – when working with different products. It is important for you to know these requirements so that you can set the laser focus to a specific point when working with these different materials. This will improve the cutting efficiency of the fibre laser cutting machine.
Regular maintenance is required to keep the machine working at optimal levels. This maintenance can also improve the cutting efficiency of the laser cutting machine. Debris and other dust created from working on these materials can get into the machine, causing inefficiency. If the dust is left to lie on the lens, the laser may not be able to perform accurate and precise cuts.
