Laser cutting machines, owing to their obvious characteristics of smooth cutting surface, high cutting speed and accuracy, are widely used for different kinds of cutting works, especially industries which impose higher standard and requirement on the cutting speed and accuracy. When it comes into purchase, However, people are most probably get confused which laser cutter to choose and how much does a laser cutter cost.
Generally, Laser cutting machine can be mainly divided into 3 groups, namely, optical fiber laser cutter machine, YAG laser cutting machine and co2 laser cutter, which have quite different working principles and prices, even the same kind of laser cutter machine have much difference in price. So, it is not easy to tell exactly how much does a laser cutter cost.
How much does a laser cutting machine cost? Several factors will have to be taken into consideration, including main parts, function, service and processing quality, etc.
The laser cutting machine is composed of different systems, mechanic, electric, control, power, etc, different parts are taken, such as laser power, motors, control systems, guide rail, etc, all of which will affect the price of Laser cutting machines:
Motor provides the driving force and is related to the precision of laser cutting machine, 2 kinds of motors are available: servo motor and stepper motor, price varies much of different brands and models, the precision of laser cutting machine will be different as well.
Different kinds of laser powers, fiber laser, co2 laser and Yag laser, have different application and working performance, the price differs much. There are also much difference of power/models for even the same kind of laser.
C.Guide rail & ball-screw
As the main transmission system, Guide rail & ball screw affect the running accuracy of the whole laser cutting machine, the cost of local brand and imported ones are quite different, buyer should pay special attention to that.
There are various models available which have different working size and main parts such as hobby laser cutter, mini laser cutter, small laser cutter, handheld laser cutter, industrial laser cutter, etc, the price of different models will be different, the user needs to choose the most suitable model according to their working requirement so as to make the best use of the machine and bring higher returns for the enterprise value.
