Due to the price of laser generators going down, fiber laser cutting machine is accepted by more and more people. But, many friends in the metal cutting industry have this question: is it worth buying a fiber laser cutting machine?


Before we talk about this question, let us first clearly understand what a fiber laser cutting machine is.

A fiber laser cutting machine is a new type of metal cutting laser machine controlled by a numerical computer. A laser beam is emitted to irradiate the surface of the metal material to form a slit. This non-contact machining method does not damage the workpiece surface. So the fiber laser cutting machine is suitable for carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, brass, copper, pickling sheet, galvanized sheet, silicon steel sheet, electrolytic sheet, titanium alloy, manganese alloy, and other metal materials. The operators import design drawings and set up the processing range.

Before the broad application of fiber laser cutting machines, the essential metal cutting method was plasma since the cnc table plasma cutter costs much less than the laser machine. Even today, many metal cuttings that do not require high precision still use plasma. But for higher standard metal cutting industry, such as automobile manufacturing, medical device production, high-precision electronic component production, high-end kitchenware, and fitness equipment, a fiber laser cutting machine is a better choice than a plasma table. Because the fiber cutting machine has the following outstanding advantages:


High cutting speed and efficiency

Lasers can penetrate materials very quickly, which is depended on how delicate and complex the part is. In addition to fast cutting, the laser cutting machine can also work at night, and the operator does not have to be at the device all the time. This can improve the overall efficiency of the cutting process. Combining these factors, the laser cutting machine has higher efficiency for metal cutting factories.


High cutting precision

As we mentioned earlier, fiber laser cutting machines are mainly used in high-tech precision manufacturing, a high-tech industry that needs high precision. The fiber laser cutting machine’s tiny incision and bright, clean cutting surface is the best choice.

The price range for a general fiber laser cutting machine ranges from 15,000 to 150,000 U.S.  dollars, according to different configuration levels. So, is it worth purchasing a fiber laser cutter? The answer is determined by yourself. If you are in a big metalworking industry and are pursuing higher processing technology and better product quality, a fiber laser cutting machine is your best choice. While if you do metalworking as a hobby or do simple metal cutting work, a cnc plasma table is enough.
