What is HVAC?

HVAC is a short name for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; HVAC ductworks is a reliable method of income since the new building requires a new HVAC system and old houses need to replace old ones. If you want to get involved in this industry but have no idea how to start, I hope this post could open your mind.

HVAC ductworks belong to sheet metal production, which includes metal cutting and welding. It is a customized metal work according to different buildings and designs.


What materials are usually used to make HVAC ductwork?

Usually, we use galvanized mild steel and aluminum. Some particularly high-class places will choose to use stainless steel.

After the steel is galvanized, the zinc cover protects against oxidation and corrosion, prolonging the HVAC system’s service time. Galvanized steel has another outstanding feature: its flexibility allows it to be unconstrained by the shape of the finished product. This feature is helpful for unique HVAC system designs and specific installation requirements.


Aluminum is also preferred for HVAC ductworks manufacturers because same like mild steel, aluminum is also flexible material. And compared with steel, its weight is lighter. This is important for HVAC ductworks since a more lightweight tube equals easier installation.


As sheets for ductwork fabrication are usually extremely large, this brings difficulty in transporting the raw material and storage. So ductworks factory buy steel sheet rolls. It needs us to uncoil and cut the roll into sheets before working.

What is the best cutting machine for HAVC fabrication?

Now we have a basic understanding of HVAC ductworks. But which machine should we use to make the system?


The best solution is EagleTec HVAC fiber laser cutting machine ET-FL1540DW.

This model uses an uncoiler device to make the metal sheet roll decoiled and then load it onto the fiber laser cutting table. The table is an auto-loading and unloading system, which is convenient for continuous work. Please take a look at the working demo below.

The HVAC industry has been using fiber laser cutting techniques for these years because the method suits HVAC applications. There is also unique HVAC software that guides the user in generating ductwork drawings with the help of building blueprints.

The fiber laser head has outstanding features in cutting aluminum, galvanized, and stainless steel sheets. 1500W laser source is enough for making ductworks whose thickness is usually from 0.6mm to 1.2mm. Compared with cnc plasma tables, fiber laser cutting machines get a fast cutting speed and a bright cutting edge, which can help machine owners get more high-quality metal tubes simultaneously.

For your HVAC industry part manufacturing needs, invest in a high-quality fiber laser cutting machine system from EagleTec CNC and revolution your productivity. With the use of a fiber laser cutting machine for the manufacturing of HVAC parts, you keep production running efficiently and smoothly. Elements can be rapidly replicated with identical dimensions, so large projects can be completed in a fraction of the time it typically takes. By increasing overall productivity, HVAC industry personnel can enhance profitability and customer satisfaction.
