When you are embarking on your metal fabrication project, it's important to consider which type of steel you will use. Typically, the choice is between carbon steel or stainless steel.
What is the difference between carbon steel and stainless steel？
Typically, carbon steel appears dull with a matte finish. On the other hand, stainless steel appears to be more glossy and comes in various grades that can increase the chromium in the alloy until the steel finish is as reflective as a mirror.
As with any project, cost is an important consideration. It's fair to say that stainless steels are often more expensive than carbon steels. So, if you're next fabrication project requires a tight budget, carbon steel is likely the better option.
One of the most often discussed differences between carbon steels and stainless steels is their ability to resist corrosion. Stainless steel often offers more corrosion resistance. So, if corrosion resistance is important for your project, stainless steel is the way to go.
After you have selected the metal material according to the needs of the project, which machine can be used to cut the metal material?
The fiber laser cutting machine
can be used for plane cutting or bevel cutting, and the edges are neat and smooth. It is suitable for high-precision cutting processing such as metal plates.
ACCTEK fiber laser cutting machine adopts RAYCUS/IPG laser source with has international advanced laser technology. The optical fiber cutting head is selected from a well-known Swiss brand with high stability. The driving choice is Japan's Yaskawa servo motor, which runs smoothly. Advanced Cypcut control system, group into high precision CNC fiber laser cutting machine.
New design economic fiber laser cutting machine AKJ1530F
is a very popular metal cutting machine. Aviation Aluminum Gantry is light weight, high strength, no deformation. Molded and framed by integral steel mold and die-casting technology, light crossbeam enables equipment a high operation speed, improving processing efficiency and processing quality. With the perfect automatic nesting system which can save time, save the materials, the sheet utilization ratio up to 95%.
What are the advantages of fiber laser cutting machine?
1. The high power fiber laser cutting machine's cutting slot is very slim, which can reach up to 0.05mm. It is very suitable for processing precision parts with high efficiency.
2. Low energy consumption: photoelectric conversion rate is up to 25-30% which can save energy and power. Electric power consumption for this type fiber cutting machine is only about 20%-30% of the traditional CO2 laser cutting machine.
3. Low maintenance cost: fiber laser cutting machines doesn't need reflect lens, saving much maintenance cost. The key components lifespan can reach 100,000 hours with stable performance.
4.Cutting Reflective Material: one of the major problems when using a traditional laser is in regards to reflective material. There is the chance a laser may bounce off the reflective material, which in turn will damage the equipment. With fiber optic lasers though, this reflective material problem is no longer an issue, which in turn allows for the cutting of these materials.
5. Faster Cutting Speed: due to the incredibly powerful beam produced using fiber optic technology, fiber lasers offer considerably faster cutting speed and precision. When cutting a straight line 1mm thick, a fiber-based laser cuts three times faster than traditional laser.
