Key Components of CNC Metal Laser Cutter

Laser Source

At the heart of the machine, the 12KW laser source emits beams at a 1.06 μm wavelength, ensuring the power needed for cutting through various thicknesses of carbon steel.

Cutting Head and Optics

Precision optics, including lenses and mirrors, focus and direct the laser beam to the workpiece, ensuring a narrow and intense beam for high-quality cutting.

CNC Controller

Executing pre-programmed commands, the CNC controller precisely controls the motion system and laser during the cutting process, integrating seamlessly with CAD/CAM software.

Motion System

Linear motors or rack and pinion systems accurately move the cutting head, impacting the resolution and repeatability crucial for top-notch cut quality.

Assist Gas Delivery System

An inert gas, such as nitrogen or compressed air, aids in removing molten material from the cut, with flow rate and pressure regulation being paramount for optimal results.

How to Cut Carbon Steel with a 12KW Fiber Laser Cutter  Step by Step:

Material Preparation

Ensuring a flat and rigid surface is crucial, and for plate cutting, additional clamping or fixturing may be required.

Cutting Path Design

Import the CAD file into the machine software, generating cutting paths that consider factors like cut sequence, laser orientation, and pierce points for the highest quality cut.

Select the Appropriate Laser Power

Carbon steel demands relatively high power, typically 3KW or more, with higher power required for cutting thicker grades.

Adjust Focus Lens

For carbon steel, a tighter focus concentrates the laser energy, with a specific focal length depending on the material thickness.

Choose Cutting Parameters

Opt for a slower cutting speed for carbon steel, allowing for full melting and removal of material. Parameters like speed and power need adjustment based on thickness and grade.

Use Oxygen, Nitrogen, Argon, Compressed Air Assist Gas

Commonly used for cutting carbon steel, oxygen, nitrogen, argon & compressed air helps remove melted material from the cutting path. Adjust flow rate and pressure for optimal results.

Safety Considerations

High-power lasers require protective eyewear and enclosures, with proper training for operators and maintenance personnel.

Material Handling Safety

Safe loading, unloading, and maneuvering of heavy carbon steel plates are essential to prevent injuries.

Gas Safety

Proper handling, storage, ventilation, and operator training are critical for high-pressure gases like nitrogen.

Electrical Safety

Following grounding, insulation, and lockout/tagout procedures is crucial for preventing electric shock and other risks.

Fire Safety

Sparks and molten metal produced during cutting necessitate the presence of a suitable fire extinguisher.
