XT Laser – Lighting Laser Cutting Machine
Laser cutting machine is currently the mainstream tool for metal processing, and laser cutting has become an important means of personalized metal lighting production. We also habitually refer to it as a lighting laser cutting machine. The flexibility, rapidity, one-time molding, and no need for mold opening of laser cutting machines are suitable for processing high reflective metal materials such as stainless steel, aluminum veneer, brass, and copper. They can effectively assist manufacturers in achieving artistic creation, personalized customization, and small batch customization. Compared with traditional cutting processes, laser cutting machines can cut better quality workpieces and reduce processing steps. In response to the personalized needs of customers, lighting designers design lighting fixtures, draw the ideal model on paper, and then program it into a laser cutting machine to process the metal outline and finally make metal lighting fixtures. This can better adapt to the constantly changing market demands of the lighting processing industry and help enterprises stand out in the fierce market competition.
Disrupting traditional processing methods
Laser processing is different from traditional processing methods. Laser processing uses a high-energy density laser beam to irradiate the surface of the processed product, causing the surface of the processed product to reach the melting or boiling point under high-energy density laser beam irradiation. At the same time, high-pressure gas is used to blow away the melted or vaporized material. The entire processing process is controlled by computer software. By using current laser cutting technology, previously cold and hard metal can be instantly transformed into vibrant lines, and the design creates a sense of flowers and plants being hidden and branches intertwined through the transformation of light and shadow. The effect of placing it in a dark place or by the window is completely different, with metal hollowed out carvings that can be freely manipulated in shape and size.
Laser cutting machines have fast processing speed, high precision, and are not limited to patterns during the processing. This allows our current lighting products to not only be designed according to personalized needs, but also have exquisite workmanship, making them shine brightly in front of us. Although the current laser cutting machine is more expensive than the current fiber laser marking machine and laser welding machine in terms of price, the effect of the laser cutting machine in the field of lighting is also incomparable to other processing methods.
Taking sheet metal cutting as an example, traditional sheet metal cutting requires several processes such as cutting, punching, and bending, which will require a large number of molds, resulting in more cost investment and waste. Compared to laser cutting machines, they do not need to go through these processes, and the cutting effect and quality are better.
The specific advantages of applying laser cutting machines to the metal lighting processing industry are:
1. Laser cutting technology belongs to non-contact machining, which uses a high-density laser beam to irradiate the surface of the workpiece to achieve fusion. The slag is blown away by high-pressure gas to complete the cutting action. The entire process is CNC machining, without contact or deformation.
2. The laser cutting machine is completely free from the limitations of pattern complexity, with very fast processing speed, high accuracy, and beautiful cutting end faces. It can process originally cold metal materials into artistic patterns, combined with the effect of lighting, making the metal patterns more exquisite and high-end.
