Stainless steel sheet Laser cutting is one of the core manufacturing processes of HOTIGOLD.
The price of laser cutting machine equipment is quite expensive, about 1.5 million yuan or more. Laser cutting is to irradiate the workpiece with a focused high power density laser beam, so that the irradiated material rapidly melts, vaporizes, ablates or reaches the ignition point. Laser cutting is one of the thermal cutting methods.
In theory, our stainless steel sheet laser cutting process uses a motion control system to track CNC pattern cuts on components. It allows the focused laser beam to burn, melt, vaporize and blow away a stream of air.
This produces a super high quality finish on the edges of the stainless steel sheet. We generate laser beams by stimulating laser materials with electrical discharges. The laser component is amplified internally by partial specular reflection until it gains enough energy to escape as a vapor of coherent monochromatic light. By directing the beam through the lens to enhance the light, the light is intentionally focused on the working area of the electrical enclosure.HOTIGOLD stainless steel screens, most of which are hollowed out by laser cutting.
HOTIGOLD mainly uses CO2 laser cutting. Compared with other laser cutting technologies, it has the following advantages:
Good Cutting Quality:
Narrow incision width (generally 0.1–0.5mm), high precision (generally, the hole center distance error is 0.1–0.4mm, and the contour size error is 0.1–0.5mm), and the surface roughness of the incision is good (generally Ra is 12.5–25μm ), the kerf can generally be welded without reprocessing.
Fast cutting speed:
HOTIGOLD adopts high-power laser head, the cutting speed of 8mm thick carbon steel is 1.6m/min; the cutting speed of 2mm thick stainless steel is 3.5m/min, the heat affected zone is small, and the deformation is extremely small. The raw material does not need to be clamped and fixed during laser cutting, which not only saves tooling and fixtures, but also saves the auxiliary time for loading and unloading.
Safe, environmentally friendly and pollution-free:
Greatly improved the operator’s working environment. CO2 is a non-toxic gas, which ensures that the stainless steel sheet is environmentally friendly and pollution-free.
Generally speaking, it is recommended to use laser cutting for metal materials such as carbon steel plates within 12mm and stainless steel plates within 10mm. The laser cutting machine has no cutting force, and the material is not deformed after processing: no contact cutting, no tool wear, and no raw material consumption. Good adaptability to materials: Whether it is simple or complex parts, it can be cut with a single precision rapid prototyping laser: its slit is narrow, the cutting quality is good, the degree of automation is high, the operation is simple, the labor intensity is low, and there is no pollution: automatic cutting can be realized. Sample, nesting, improve the utilization rate of raw materials, relatively low production cost and good economic benefits.
Based on the above factors, HOTIGOLD has the following advantages when using laser cutting:
As a professional stainless steel sheet manufacturer, HOTIGOLD can provide stainless steel sheet products that meet your specific requirements thanks to our advanced CO2 laser cutting technology. Regardless of the size of stainless steel sheet, we can achieve fast cutting and setting, speeding up the time required to enter the next process.
Our advanced laser cutting machines meet all industrial and quality standards. This is important because it allows us to efficiently perform all laser cutting processes on your custom stainless steel sheet.
Even larger sizes of stainless steel sheets can be easily fitted into our laser cutters. At HOTIGOLD, we offer a relatively fast laser cutting turnaround time of about 3-10 days, depending on the quantity of the order, of course.
Compared with traditional cutting methods, HOTIGOLD adopts laser cutting, which is undoubtedly one of the important factors to improve production efficiency. Furthermore, using laser cutting, the edge of the stainless steel plate is smooth and flat, without burrs, without dimensional errors, and with high precision. Minimize product damage rate, reduce customer return rate, and ensure the smooth operation of customer projects from the side.
