How to Operate a Laser Cutting Machine

Laser cutting is a process that uses thin laser beams focused together and creates a cut on the metal. The laser beam makes the material melt the workpiece. The laser heads move electronically, to cut the desired shape of the material. Laser cutting is useful for the fabrication of metals like steel, brass, aluminum, and nickel.

How to Operate a Laser Cutting Machine?

The Laser Cutter For Metal Steel Tube is equipped with a tube cutting device, which can cut carbon steel, stainless steel plates, and tubes. This machine comes in different power types. As this machine is multifunctional, it can cut the sheets as well as pipes, so it is popular in all kinds of industries. These machines provide excellent performance, high speed in cutting, and higher conversion rates.

The following are some basic steps to operate the fiber laser cutting machine:

Fix the metal material on the machine, then position the material to determine the stability, in order to avoid jitter while cutting.

Operate the computer, set the pre-programs to the machine, and check the settings.

The four most important settings that need to be checked are power, speed, frequency, and focus distance.

Then adjust the cutting head to the focus point and then adjust the nozzle.

Start the regulator and chiller. Set water temperature and pressure levels of the chiller.

Start the laser first, then turn on the machine.

What Are Some of Its Uses in Industries?

Fiber laser cutting machines are suitable for cutting all kinds of metal materials. The cutting quality is based on what kind of material and its thickness. These laser cutters for metal tubes can be used in cutting the pipes and sheets, which is useful in making parts with high precision. So, these machines are mostly used in aerospace, automobile, ship manufacturing, and many other small business industries for making perfect parts.

What Other Materials It Can Cut?

These laser cutters machines are used in metal and pipe cutting. These machines have a good cutting effect on the following materials.

Carbon and Stainless steel: These machines can cut carbon steel metal which is having a thickness of up to 30 mm. For stainless steel materials, fiber laser cutters are very effective and provide a smooth cutting surface, fast cutting speed, small thermal deformation, and the ability to maintain the stable physical and chemical properties of the stainless-steel material.

Nickel and its alloys: These machines can cut the nickel material of different thicknesses.

Titanium and its alloys: A fiber laser cutter is very effective on titanium materials. The laser beam has a high thermal energy conversion rate when cutting this material. These metals are widely sued in aircraft industries to make strong parts.


Before buying the laser cutter, consider your budget and think about the thickness of the material you are going to cut. This will help you in choosing the correct machine and save your money.
