What are the types of laser cutting machines? It depends on how you classify.
1. If divided by laser, it can be divided into:
A, solid-state laser. The solid laser is divided into ruby laser, YAG, etc.
B, semiconductor laser.
C, liquid laser.
D, gas laser. CO2 laser
Of course, there are two types of YAG and CO2 for laser cutting.
2. According to the structure of the laser cutting machine, it can be divided into:
A, Desktop Laser Cutting Machine
This laser cutting machine is the most common. The laser is placed on one side and transmitted to the laser cutting head through the external optical path. The processing range is generally 1.5 * 3M, 2 * 4M.
According to the specific structure, the desktop is divided into cantilever type, gantry type, hybrid type and so on.
Many domestic and foreign brands, such as TRUMPF, Bystronic, Prima, MAZAK, etc., are mostly desktop laser cutting machines.
Desktop machines are mainly used for sheet metal processing. Can be used in many industries, such as elevator manufacturing, electrical switch cabinets, grain machinery and other industries mainly based on sheet metal processing
B, Gantry-mounted laser cutting machine
This laser cutting machine is to put the laser on the machine and move the random machine together. This can ensure the constant light path, the effective cutting range can be large, the width can be 2-6 meters, and the length can be tens of meters. Mainly used in construction machinery, shipbuilding, locomotive and other heavy industries. Mainly for blanking and cutting in the medium and heavy plate industry within 3MM-25MM.
The main brands of this type of mounted laser cutting machine are: TANAKA, KOIKE, etc.
3. If divided by cutting workpiece. It can be divided into:
A. Metal laser cutting machine. The power of the laser is generally relatively large.
B. Non-metal laser cutting machine. The power of the laser is generally small.
C. Can also be used for cutting tubes, tube laser cutting machines.
