Fiber Laser Cutting speed
Laser cutting speed plays a crucial role in determining the quality of the cut. When all other parameters are kept constant, the cutting speed and the density and thickness of the material being cut are inversely proportional. It means that as the cutting speed increases, the density and thickness of the material should decrease for optimal results.
Fast Cutting Speed
Finding the right cutting speed is key to achieving a smooth cutting surface without any slag production in the lower part. However, if the cutting speed is set too fast, it can lead to incomplete cuts, resulting in sparks flying and slag being generated in the lower part. In some cases, it can even lead to lens damage due to excessive heat. On the other hand, if the cutting speed is too slow, it can cause the material to overmelt, widen the slit beyond desired dimensions, and potentially result in workpiece damage.
