What should I pay attention to when purchasing a laser cutting machine? You can immediately consult Han’s Superpower
Laser cutting technology has been increasingly widely applied in fields such as sheet metal processing and metal pipes. The technology of laser cutting machines is already quite mature, occupying a very large market share in the metal cutting industry, but there are still many users. There are still various issues when choosing a suitable laser cutting machine for oneself. Next, XT Laser will introduce the precautions to be taken when purchasing a laser cutting machine and how to choose a laser cutting machine correctly. You can choose and consider from the following aspects:
When purchasing a laser cutting machine, the range of processed materials should be considered first.
Firstly, we need to consider factors such as our business scope, thickness of cutting materials, which materials need to be cut, and then determine the power of the equipment to be purchased and the size of the workbench. At present, the mainstream laser cutting machines in the market have power ranging from 500W to 6000W, and the general size of the workbench can be customized according to customer needs.
2. Determine and select the manufacturer of the laser cutting mechanism
After determining the demand, we can go to the market to learn about it or go to peers who have already purchased laser cutting machines to see the performance and basic parameters of the machines. Select several manufacturers with strong capabilities and favorable prices for preliminary communication and sampling. Afterwards, we can conduct on-site inspections and have more detailed negotiations on machine prices, machine training, payment methods, after-sales service, etc.
3. Understand the laser power of laser cutting machines
When choosing the performance of laser cutting machines, we should fully consider our own environment. The power of the laser is very important. For example, if we often cut metal plates below 6mm, we can choose a 500W-700W laser cutting machine to meet production requirements. If cutting materials larger than 6mm, we need to consider machines with higher power, which is very helpful for the cost control of the enterprise.
4. Understand the configuration of laser cutting machine components
When choosing a laser cutting machine, we also need to pay great attention to some important components. Especially for laser generators, laser cutting heads, servo motors, guide rails, water tanks, etc., it is necessary to distinguish whether they are domestically produced or imported. These parts directly affect the cutting speed and accuracy of laser cutting machines. Many domestic manufacturers use domestically produced components to deceive customers.
5. Test the performance of laser cutting machines
Nowadays, the research and development cycle of products is short, and the updates and upgrades are getting faster and faster. There is a lot of diversity, sample trial production, and mass production of products. How to complete customer orders with high quality and quantity, maintain corporate reputation, and enhance corporate competitiveness is also a challenging task for every operator. Therefore, choosing processing equipment with stable performance is the premise and foundation, and choosing high market share and a sound after-sales service system is the best choice Brands with multiple after-sales service outlets and long-term market testing cannot simply purchase products with poor quality and no after-sales service just because they are greedy for low prices. This will have a huge impact on the production of enterprises.
6. Investigate the after-sales service of laser cutting machine manufacturers
The after-sales service of various manufacturers varies greatly, and the length of warranty period also varies. In terms of after-sales service, we not only provide customers with effective daily maintenance solutions, but also have a professional training system for machines and laser software to help customers get started as soon as possible. In addition, even with the best laser cutting machine, users may encounter various problems during use. When encountering problems that customers cannot solve on their own, it is particularly important for manufacturers to provide timely solutions, which is also an important factor we need to consider when purchasing laser cutting machines.
