What is the difference between laser cutting machine and plasma cutting machine?
Many customers who have just touched the laser cutting machine when consulting laser cutting equipment, a laser cutting that is part of the thermal processing and plasma cutting machine that is the same. May be in the early stage of the purchase of equipment, these two devices are not familiar with, do not know what kind of processing equipment to buy confused. Therefore, We make these two cutting equipment to do a comparison, so that we better understand these two devices.
Plasma cutting machine is a thermal cutting equipment, the main working principle is compressed air as the main body to high temperature and high speed plasma arc as heat source, will be cut metal partial melting, and at the same time with high-speed air flow will be melted metal blowing, Forming a narrow slit. Plasma cutting machine can cut stainless steel, iron, aluminum, copper and other metal materials, and cutting speed, slit narrow, incision smooth. Plasma cutting machines are generally used in the construction, installation and maintenance of mechanical and metal structures.
Laser cutting machine is the use of high-power high-density laser beam scanning material surface, in a very short period of time can be heated to thousands of things or even tens of thousands of degrees Celsius, the material can melt or vaporize, and then high-pressure gas will melt or Other substances are blown away from the slits. Laser cutting using the invisible beam instead of the traditional mechanical knife, laser cutting speed, smooth incision, generally do not need post-processing, cutting heat less affected, small deformation plate.
