The difference between fiber laser cutting machine and plasma cutting machine

  • Working principle
    Fiber laser cutting machine is to use the energy contained in the laser beam to melt and vaporize the material, and then blow away the residue through high pressure gas, so as to complete the cutting effect.

Plasma cutting machine uses high temperature and high speed plasma arc as heat source to melt metal materials. Because the plasma arc is used to cut. The cutting section often has a certain slope.

  • Cutting range
    For the cutting of metal materials, plasma cutting machine and fiber laser cutting machine range is similar, which can complete the cutting of copper, aluminum, stainless steel, carbon steel and other materials.

Fiber laser cutting machine has a certain risk in cutting high anti material. There will be certain damage to the laser head. Plasma cutting machine will not have these problems.

  •  Cutting quality
    In the slit comparison, the fiber laser cutting machine slit is between 0.1-0.3mm. And plasma cutting machine is 1-2mm. So their cutting accuracy is also very different. The precision of fiber laser cutter machine is much greater than plasma cutting machine.
  • Energy consumption
    In terms of power consumption, the power consumption of plasma cutting machine is much greater than fiber laser cutting machine.

According to the material thickness of 1-40mm, the power consumption of plasma cutting machine is 10KW-45kW. The power consumption of fiber laser cutting machine is 5KW-13kW.

  •  Cost
    From the point of view of equipment price, the price of plasma cutting machine is lower than fiber laser cutting machine.The return cycle is shorter.
  • Cutting thickness
    Fiber laser metal cutting machine has fast cutting speed and less slag hanging. Cutting is not easy to deformation. With the emergence of ten thousand watt fiber laser machine, cutting thickness is no longer limited to thin plate. It finally can reach 30-50mm.
    And plasma cutting machine cutting thickness is between 3-40mm.
  • Dust removal
    Fiber laser cutting machine is usually used under exhaust system. The dust generated in the cutting process will not be too much. So the ordinary axial flow fan can achieve a good dust removal effect.

Plasma cutting machine usually produces a lot of smoke in the work.We need to use high-power dust removal machine. But dust removal effect is only 80%. In order to avoid pollution, many factories will be add water table in the plasma cutting machine in order to achieve high efficiency of dust removal effect. But this will still produce a very pungent smell and cause serious environmental pollution to the surrounding environment.
