With the popularity of laser cutting equipment, competition in the laser processing industry is becoming increasingly fierce. How to improve efficiency and reduce costs has become a concern for most users. Today, we take 6000W laser cutting equipment and 12000W laser cutting equipment as examples, and calculate which laser equipment cost is lower from the aspects of processing cost and processing efficiency.
The following cost analysis is calculated according to the following configuration parameters:
It can be seen from the above data: Compared with the 6KW laser processing cost , the 12kW laser cutting cost can basically be reduced by more than half. Among them, stainless steel has the largest advantage, followed by carbon steel and aluminum. Air is used as an auxiliary gas when cutting stainless steel, and the unit price processing cost is the lowest, which can meet products with low requirements on cutting end faces.
From the test cutting speed, it is concluded that when cutting carbon steel, the 12kW laser cutting speed is 87% to 493% faster than the 6kW laser cutting speed; when cutting stainless steel, the 12kW laser cutting speed is faster than the 6kW laser cutting speed % —289%; When cutting aluminum, the cutting speed of 12kW laser cutting is 150% -213% faster than that of 6kW laser cutting.
Lasers used in the above tests:
to sum up:
From the perspective of overall economic benefits, the price of a 12kW laser cutting device is 30% -40% higher than that of a 6kW laser cutting device, but the production efficiency is more than several times that of a 6kW laser cutting device, and the processing cost is also higher than that of a 6kW laser cutting device. The equipment is reduced by more than half, which greatly reduces the processing time and processing cost of a single workpiece, and the processing effect is more excellent, which can create the effect of doubling the value for users.
Of course, specific problems need to be analyzed in detail. Users need to purchase processing equipment and choose the processing method that suits them according to the actual needs of their enterprises.
