On the development history of laser cutting machine industry





CO2 laser cutting machine (2000-2004)

From 2000 to 2004, a complete set of high-power laser equipment was launched, which was used in cutting, welding, drilling and other broad fields

Main advantages: high power, general power is between 2000-4000w, can cut the full-size stainless steel, carbon steel and other conventional materials within 25mm, and aluminum plate within 4mm and acrylic plate within 60mm, wood material plate, PVC plate, and can cut the sheet quickly. In addition, the CO2 laser output is a continuous laser, which is the most smooth and best of the three laser cutting machines.

Main market positioning: 6-25 mm thick plate cutting and processing, mainly for large and medium-sized enterprises and some laser cutting and processing enterprises with pure external processing. However, due to its large laser maintenance consumption, large power consumption of the host machine and other factors that cannot be overcome, in recent years, the market is in a state of obvious shrinkage due to the huge impact of fiber laser cutting machine.

YAG solid laser cutting machine (2009-2012)

Used to be popular in metal processing market, mainly used for drilling, spot welding and sheet metal cutting

YAG solid-state laser cutting machine has the characteristics of low price and good stability, but the energy efficiency is generally lower than 3%. At present, the output power of the products is mostly below 850W. Because of the small output energy, it is mainly used for drilling, spot welding and thin plate cutting.

Main market positioning: cutting below 8mm, mainly for self-employed small and medium-sized enterprises and most of the sheet metal manufacturing, home appliance manufacturing, kitchenware manufacturing, decoration, advertising and other industry users, gradually replacing traditional processing equipment such as wire cutting, CNC punch, water cutting, small power plasma, etc.

Disc laser cutter (2015-2016)

Disk laser cutting into the market of non-ferrous processing

Main advantages: disc laser is a combination of solid-state laser and semiconductor laser. Disc design ensures excellent beam quality. The semiconductor laser is used as the pump source unit to ensure high photoelectric efficiency. The power of disk laser is up to 16000 watts, which is characterized by its ability to cut thick brass and aluminum plates.

Main market positioning: under 25 mm cutting, especially the high-quality cutting of medium and thick plates, mainly for the enterprises with foreign processing or more non-ferrous metal processing. The disadvantage is that the later maintenance cost is large, the service and technology are not yet open and popular, and the cost is higher than that of optical fiber. With the emergence of 4000W and above fiber laser, fiber laser cutting machine will eventually replace most of the market.

Optical fiber metal laser cutting machine (2012 present)

High power impacts the market of small power processing, and eventually popularizes all major factories

Main advantages: high photoelectric conversion rate, less power consumption, cutting 20-30mm

Stainless steel plate and carbon steel plate inside are the fastest cutting speed among the three machines

Laser cutting machine, small slit, good spot quality, can be used for fine, stable and efficient

Cut. 2012 - present main market positioning: manufacturing, sheet metal industry, agricultural machinery, municipal garden Wait. Mainly for the manufacturers with high requirements for processing accuracy and efficiency, after 2015, with the emergence of 4000W and above lasers, fiber laser cutting machine has replaced most markets of CO2 high-power laser cutting, YAG laser cutting machine, disc laser cutting machine, etc. Fiber laser cutting machine is developing towards more refined, industrial and deep customization.
