laser cutting of metal plateLaser cutting has become a conventional cutting method thanks to the precise cuts that the technique offers. When buying a laser cutting machine for your application, multiple factors come to mind.

Some of the essential features to consider in a CO2 laser cutter machine include:

Software Requirements

Different machines have varying software requirements. Some machines have a CAM software which you should familiarize with before using the machine, and other machines depend on a driver to facilitate communication between the machine and a computer.

Floor Space

These cutters take up floor space in your workshop. But there’s more to the space that the machine will take up. You need space for the ventilation and cooling equipment and for the computer which you will be using to control the machine.

Ventilation and Cooling Requirements

Some machines require systems to perform the ventilation and cooling tasks. These systems can come together with the machine, or you can acquire them differently. These systems increase the complexity of machine operations and maintenance routines.

Accessories

You may require extra accessories for your machine to enjoy more functionality benefits from the machine. Such accessories include rotary tools to work on round objects.

Machine Output Power

A powerful laser means that the machine can cut through dense materials. Also, the power output of a machine equals the speed of work you can expect from your machine. The output power of machines varies from below 40 watts to above 100 watts. Your application will dictate the power output you require from a machine.

Price

The price of laser cutters depends on the size of the machine and capabilities. Your requirements could dictate the laser cutter you should get, but your budget could be a limitation.

A co2 laser cutter is an investment for your business. You will enjoy faster cutting turn-around times, precise cuts, and increased production. Even then you need to consider your current and future requirements to help in choosing the most appropriate cutter to acquire.
