Plasma cutting and laser cutting is cutting machine in three different ways of cutting in the market have a certain market, this article will from the cutting quality, production capacity, operation cost and maintenance methods of two kinds of cutting way to do a simple comparative analysis.
Flame cutting, cutting nozzle in air pressure factors such as height, and the preheating time, whole cutting material deformation scale is larger, can not adapt to the need of high precision cutting, and cutting speed is low, due to the need to preheat before cutting at the same time, take time, it is difficult to meet the need of unmanned operation.
Cutting quality: plasma cutting Angle, heat affected zone small, basic no slag, good fine cutting effect;
Laser cutting Angle, heat affected zone small, basic no slag, under the condition of the narrow camber can achieve good to fine cut production capacity: plasma cutting cutting various thickness of metal material were extremely fast, perforation extremely fast;
Laser cutting torch can quick disconnect, increase the production efficiency, cutting thickness less than 6 mm speed when the metal materials, metal is thicker, the slower speed, the more thick metal, punch the longer.
General use laser cutting nonmetal only high precision of cutting metal side would use laser cutting!
Operating costs: plasma cutting parts service life is long, the production efficiency, good cutting quality fine, leading to a single operating cost is lower than other technologies;
Laser cutting due to cutting thicker material the consumption of electricity, gas, high maintenance costs and cutting speed is relatively low, leading to a single operation of the high cost of maintenance mode: plasma cutting usually by the plant maintenance team for many components for proper maintenance;
Laser cutting need professional and technical personnel to complete complex maintenance work!
