Deformation of finished products cut by fiber laser cutter?

The fiber laser cutting machine can be used for both plane cutting and bevel cutting, and the edges are neat and smooth. It is suitable for high-precision cutting such as metal plate, with high precision, fast speed, narrow cutting seam, minimum heat affected zone, and smooth cutting surface without burrs. The laser cutting head will not contact the material surface and will not scratch the workpiece.

So what are the reasons for the deformation of the finished products we cut when using? Let’s have a look!

1. The fiber laser cutting machine itself is a large cutting equipment composed of multiple components. When the core components fail, it is normal that the processing quality of metal materials will be affected, as long as it is repaired in time.
2. The  fiber laser cutting machine does not guarantee that the workpiece processed will not have any deformation, but the material deformation is much smaller than that of other cutting equipment. If there is some very small deformation, it is obviously unreasonable to blame the equipment itself.
3. The material and thickness of metal materials are inconsistent with the equipment. The material and thickness of the material are often the biggest causes of deformation. Some materials may have a high reflective property. When cutting such materials, fiber laser cutting machines generally need to be treated. Cutting without treatment will have a certain impact. However, the thickness is not consistent with the power of the equipment, which will further affect the processing quality of the machine. These factors will lead to uneven heating of the material itself and deformation.
4. The equipment has not been debugged well. Although the fiber laser cutting machine is highly technical, it is also necessary to arrange professionals to debug the whole machine before starting. Many customers often ignore this and start the machine quickly without debugging, which will certainly affect the cutting effect.
