What is Tube Laser Cutting Machine?
The tube laser cutting machine is mainly used to cut various metal hollow round pipe materials, such as stainless steel pipe, carbon steel pipe, galvanized pipe and other industrial and civil metal pipes.This kind of pipe is generally used in building materials, industrial pipes, office furniture, sports and fitness equipment and so on.
A laser tube cutter is an automatic CNC pipe cutting system that uses laser beam to cut square tubes, round tubes, oval pipes, rectangular tubes, triangular tubes, hexagonal tubes, elliptical tubes and some custom special shape pipes made of carbon steel, stainless steel, tool steel, mild steel, aluminum, alloy, brass, bronze, copper and titanium. A laser metal tube cutter machine is a dieless cutting system to cut any types of designs on metal pipes in any angle and direction. Compared with plasma cutting, flame cutting, water jet cutting, and wire cutting, the precision of laser-cut metal is much higher without grinding.
The tube laser cutting machine adopts fiber laser and is the preferred cutting machine for small and medium-sized enterprises.With the maturity and rapid development of laser technology, it has begun to be widely used in various industries.The laser cutting technology has also developed from sheet metal cutting to metal tube cutting.
How Does A Laser Tube Cutter Work?
The fiber laser pipe cutting machine uses a fiber laser to output a high energy density laser beam and focus it on the surface of the pipe. The area on the tube irradiated by the ultra-fine focus light spot is instantly melted and vaporized. The spot irradiation position is moved by the CNC mechanical system to realize automatic cutting. It is high-tech equipment that integrates advanced fiber laser technology, digital control technology, and precision automated technology.
Features of Laser Tube Cutting Machine
1. The fiber laser tube cutter machine bed will go through 600℃ heat treatment, 24 hours cooling in the oven, 8 meters gantry milling, accurate CO2 protection welding to make sure 20 years usage without deformation.With the above actions, all bad results will be get rid of. The cutting precision can reach ±0.02mm.
2. The fiber laser tube cutting machine adopts China best brand Raycus or Germany IPG fiber laser generator to get the best cutting quality.
3. Swiss Raytools brand laser cutting head. Optimization of the optical configuration smooth efficient air flow design.
4. The rotary device adopts multiple automatically segmented feeding method, fast and precision, easy for clamping to reduce the distance from laser processing head to the pipe ends, reducing the material head waste, improve material utilization.
5. The numerical control system configuration with Cypcut software to meet the requirements of different tubes cutting.
6. For all types of large diameter tolerances, fuzzy boundaries, stepping device selectively gripping and pre-set torque to ensure the holder is not easy deformation of thin-walled tube.
7. Air system can simultaneously access three different auxiliary gas and automatic conversion. High pressure gas path designed to improve the capacity of cutting of stainless steel and other hard materials. Through the solenoid and proportional valves can automatically switch oxygen, nitrogen and air, and the gas pressure can be within a certain range stepless adjustment.
Advantages of CNC Laser Tube Cutting Machine
The cutting principle of laser tube cutting machines and flat laser tube cutting machines is not much different. A laser tube cutting machine is used for standard metal tubes (round tubes, rectangular tubes, elliptical tubes, etc.), profiles (channel steel, angle steel, etc.), and some shaped tubes.
Compared to traditional processing techniques, it has the following advantages:
- With high cutting accuracy, the accuracy of the cut contour can reach ±0.05mm.
- The cut is flat, burr-free, with a fine cut and low material loss.
- It is non-contact processing, and the heat-affected zone of laser cutting is very small, with almost no deformation.
- It has high cutting efficiency and can realize mass production.
- It has good flexibility and can change or replace products by using a professional CNC system and a complete set of material programming software.
Thus, a professional laser tube cutter can replace mechanical drilling, milling, sawing, punching, or burr cleaning, which requires equipment and hard tools to process different metal tubes.
It can realize complex tube structure cutting, chamfering, slotting or hole cutting, scribing, and other possible size and shape features. A laser pipe cutting machine is very widely used. It is used in sheet metal processing, kitchenware, lighting, automotive, medical equipment, hardware, fitness equipment, and other industries
