LASER TUBE CUTTING TECHNOLOGY
Laser tube cutting machines, also known as tube laser cutting machines, can cut long pieces of tube or cut holes into sections of tube with incredible precision. Common industries that utilize tube laser cutting include agriculture, architecture, fast food, and construction.
A laser tube cutting machine does it all: material handling, cutting, machining, drilling, tapping, and punching, allowing you to optimize processing and maximize efficiency. Bundle loaders, the most efficient of the tube material handling options, feed one tube at a time from the bundle into the tube laser via a singularizing system.
Laser tube cutting machines are specifically designed to cut a large range of mill-length tube and pipe, whether round, square, rectangular, or triangular. Some of the more advanced options can process I- and H-beams, C-channel, angle iron, and other user-defined shapes.
A high-powered light source is channeled and amplified through fiber-optic cable to be adjusted and focused for the type of material to be cut. Clean, quiet and virtually maintenance-free, fiber laser tube cutting is an economical and effective choice.
When it comes to part quality, proper support for the raw stick can make all the difference. The more chucks on a system, the greater the accuracy will be when the tube is rotating. The ability to support tubing on both sides of the cut is important because inaccuracies can occur if the tube is hanging and unsupported. The addition of a third or fourth chuck allows for removal of a finished part from the cutting area while the first and second chucks are cutting, boosting output.
FIBER LASER VS ABRASIVE WATERJET CUTTING
While these two technologies may be complementary in some ways, there are some clear differences. For example, laser is better for cutting thin metal very precisely and quickly (offering an excellent quality of edge, especially for fine features and holes), while waterjet excels at cutting a wider range of materials with no distortion or heat-affected zone.
Laser cutting is an energy-efficient thermal process, while waterjet employs a cold, supersonic abrasive to cut material, meaning that it doesn’t apply any heat to the material during the process. As a result, abrasive waterjet cutting does not alter the physical state of the material being cut or cause the material to warp from the heat. As waterjets produce such clean cuts, there is minimal finishing required around the edges, resulting in reduced labour and machine time.
Fiber laser cutting is a clean, eco-friendly process, using less energy and producing next to no waste. The small amount of dust produced can be cleaned up quickly and easily with a vacuum or filtering process. Waterjet, on the other hand, requires special disposal of the abrasive waste, which increases operating costs.
While both technologies produce high precision parts, fiber laser cutting offers a higher degree of accuracy for complex part geometries, unattended operation and low operating costs. To this, add high energy efficiency, clean operations, safe processing of highly reflective materials, continuous cutting and higher speeds when cutting thin materials with a single set-up.
