How to choose a CNC cutting machine?
Selecting a CNC laser cutting machine can be a crucial decision for your business or project. Here are some important aspects to consider when selecting:
- Cutting needs
Determine the types of materials you plan to cut and their thickness. Certain materials require specific lasers, so it is important to select a machine compatible with your cutting needs.
- Accuracy and speed
Precise cutting is essential to achieve high-quality results, while high cutting speed can increase your business productivity.
- Laser power
The power of the laser is an important factor to consider. The higher the power, the more the machine will be able to cut thick and hard materials. However, higher power can also lead to higher costs.
What is the maintenance and upkeep of the CNC cutting machine?
Regular maintenance and servicing of CNC laser cutting equipment is essential to ensure its proper operation and extend its lifespan. Here are some tips to ensure effective maintenance:
- Regular cleaning
Clean CNC laser cutting equipment regularly to remove cutting residue, dust and debris. Use appropriate cleaning products and be sure to dry surfaces thoroughly after cleaning.
- Checking the optics
Machine optics, including lenses and mirrors, should be checked and cleaned regularly. Make sure they are clean and well aligned to get precise cuts.
The moving parts of the machine must be properly lubricated to prevent excessive friction and ensure smooth movement. Use lubricants recommended by the manufacturer and follow the recommended lubrication intervals.
Calibrating the machine is important to ensure that cuts are made accurately. Check the machine calibration regularly and adjust it if necessary.
- Replacement of wearing parts
Wearing parts, such as belts, bearings and cutting heads, must be replaced regularly to avoid performance problems. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for parts life and replacement.
What are the types of CNC cutting machines?
There are different types of CNC laser cutting machines available in the market. The main types include fiber and CO2. Each type of machine uses a different laser source to perform the cutting.
Fiber laser cutting machines are commonly used to cut metals. They use a fiber optic laser to focus the laser beam, resulting in precise and fast cuts in metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, sheet metal.
CO2 laser cutting machines are ideal for cutting non-metallic materials such as wood and plastic. They use a CO2 laser which is absorbed by these materials, causing them to heat and evaporate to make precise cuts.
