The Impact of Long-time Full Load Operation of Fiber Laser Cutting Machine
2021-10-26284

Compared with similar metal cutting equipment, the price of optical fiber laser cutting machine is relatively high. After all, optical fiber laser cutting machine has more advantages than traditional equipment. With different power, the price difference will be large. Many customers choose relatively cheap ones for price reasons. However, this can only deal with superficial phenomena in a short time, but can not solve long-term problems. As a processing equipment, it is inevitable to process products for a long time. Does long-time load work harm the laser cutting machine?

The Impact of long-time full load operation

1. Service life of laser and lens:

The service life of laser is limited. Generally, the value given by the manufacturer is 100000 hours, and it can operate normally for 33 years according to 8 hours a day.

The lens is divided into two consumables: protective lens and focusing lens. Each protective lens can work for about 200 hours.

In actual use, it is usually replaced once in about 7 days; Each focusing lens can work for about 2400 hours. It is usually replaced every 3-6 months. The above working hours are estimated as 8 hours / day. The longer the working hours per day, the shorter the service life.

2. Laser power

long-time full power operation will certainly have an impact on the equipment. For example, driving a car at full speed for a long time will cause certain damage to the motor and other parts of the car.

After the laser operates at full load for a long time, the power of the laser will also have a certain attenuation. During normal operation, the annual attenuation rate of the laser is within 2.5%. If it works for a long time, the attenuation rate will be higher.

 

3. Main components laser water chiller

When the water chiller starts and stops high-frequency operation, it consumes a lot of internal compressors and main components, which will shorten the service life of the water chiller. Of course, in addition to the consumption of these common parts, running the laser cutting machine at full load for a long time will also have an impact on other parts.

Therefore, the machine should be maintained regularly and the machine should be kept in good condition for production.
