In view of the existing problems of traditional sheet metal cutting, the demand for laser cutting is also increasing. Then what are the advantages of laser cutting compared with traditional sheet metal cutting?
Traditional sheet metal cutting: (CNC) shears because it is mainly straight line cutting, can only be used in straight sheet metal processing only.
Laser cutting: laser cutting has high flexibility, fast cutting speed, high production efficiency and short production cycle. Both simple and complex parts can be used to achieve rapid prototyping by laser.
Traditional sheet metal cutting: high pressure water cutting process is slow, resulting in serious pollution and high cost.
Laser cutting: low production cost and good economic benefit;
Traditional sheet metal cutting: (CNC / brick pagoda) punching machine is limited in cutting the thickness of steel plate above 1.5mm, and the surface quality is not good, the cost is high, the noise is big, it is not good for environmental protection.
Laser cutting: it can realize automatic cutting and nesting, improve material utilization, tool wear and material adaptability.
Traditional sheet metal cutting: flame cutting, as the original traditional cutting mode, has large heat deformation and wide slotting in cutting, waste material and slow processing speed, which is only suitable for rough machining.
Laser cutting: narrow cut, good cutting quality, high automation, easy operation, low labor intensity, safety and environmental protection.
