How to protect our eyes when we use laser cutting machines

    Eye protection measures of laser cutting machine
    metal laser cutting machine has become mainstream processing equipment
    In recent years, fiber laser cutting machines have become a new hot spot in the metal material processing industry. The advancement of cutting technology has greatly promoted the transformation and upgrading of domestic industrial technology. Metal laser cutting machine equipment is gradually being widely used, which has different degrees of impact on various industries. In the absence of professional training, we must pay attention to our own protection knowledge, especially eye protection knowledge, when operating the laser cutting machine.
    When we operate the metal laser cutting machine every day, what measures should we take? The protective equipment of the metal laser cutting machine is usually laser protective glasses to prevent the laser from damaging the eyes. Of course, the manufacturer will filter and protect the laser radiation wave of the metal laser cutting machine to maintain the laser of the metal laser cutting machine on the human body.
    At the same time, for metal laser cutting machines and plasma cutting machines, the radiation to workers is particularly important in actual operation control, especially the damage to the eyes. Here are some common sense about eye protection:
    1. When the glasses, goggles or working cap sink, please replace them immediately.
    2. When arranging the cutting site, the following measures (problem solving pointers) can be taken to reduce the reflection or radiation of ultraviolet rays: darken the wall surface of the work site to reduce radiation; install protective screens or curtains to reduce ultraviolet radiation. The manufacturer of the laser cutting mechanism focuses the laser from the laser into a high-power density laser beam, which passes through the optical path system.
    3. According to national or local laws and regulations, wear dark eyes or goggles with a protective layer or welding helmet to protect the eyes from the intense flame of the plasma arc, ultraviolet rays and infrared rays.
    4. Please do not look directly at the arc or flame when cutting.

    500w-3000w laser cutting machine cutting speed of carbon steel/stainless steel/aluminum plate/copper plate
    fiber laser cutting machine has become the mainstream equipment in the metal cutting industry. One of the main reasons is that traditional processes are prone to defects such as cracks, white spots, impurities, looseness, scabs, and delamination in the process of cutting metal materials, while metal materials processed by fiber laser cutting technology will not have such problems. The second point is to increase the cutting speed. Let us briefly understand the cutting speed of several mainstream medium and low power laser cutting machines (500 W/1000 W/2000 W/3000 W) for various metal materials.
    Cutting speed of 3000 W fiber laser cutting machine
    The maximum cutting speed of the 3000 W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: the maximum cutting speed of carbon steel is 35m/min, the maximum cutting speed of stainless steel is 35m/min, the maximum cutting speed of aluminum plate is 43m/min, and the maximum cutting speed of copper plate is 35m/min.
    Cutting speed of 2000 W fiber laser cutting machine
    The maximum cutting speed of 2000 W fiber laser cutting machine for different materials: the maximum cutting speed of carbon steel is 28m/min, the maximum cutting speed of stainless steel is 28m/min, the maximum cutting speed of aluminum plate is 25m/min, and the maximum cutting speed of copper plate is 16m/min.
    Cutting speed of 1000 W fiber laser cutting machine
    The maximum cutting speed of different materials of 1000 W fiber laser cutting machine: the maximum cutting speed of carbon steel is 24m/min, the maximum cutting speed of stainless steel is 24m/min, the maximum cutting speed of aluminum plate is 10m/min, and the maximum cutting speed of copper plate is 10m/min.
    Cutting speed of 500 W fiber laser cutting machine
    The maximum cutting speeds of different materials of 500 W fiber laser cutting machine are: carbon steel 13m/min, stainless steel 14m/min, aluminum plate 5.5m/min, copper plate 5.5m/min.
    The above data is for your reference and comparison. Actual data may vary by manufacturer and configuration. It can be seen from the above data that the cutting speed can directly reflect the efficiency of the fiber laser cutting machine. Depending on the material and thickness, the cutting speed will vary greatly. The thicker the thickness, the slower the speed. In addition, most companies not only cut carbon steel, but also cut stainless steel, silicon steel and other materials. The cutting range of the fiber laser cutting machine can also meet the cutting of carbon steel, silicon steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, titanium alloy, galvanized sheet, soaked sheet, aluminum zinc sheet and other materials. Its scope of application is wider.
