Aluminum plate processing is often encountered in processing. One of the questions is whether aluminum plate can be cut by laser? The answer is yes.
A few years ago, the laser cutting machine was able to cut aluminum plates. At that time, the workers used ink to coat the aluminum plates (it is said that because the aluminum plate has a high reflective coefficient and is afraid of reflecting the laser), and the laser parameters are very difficult to adjust. At that time, only aluminum plates with a thickness of 1 mm could be cut. After accumulating experience, the incision of the aluminum plate is also very smooth and there is no dross.
Laser cutting aluminum plate also depends on the power of the laser generator. The thickest 6000W can cut to 16mm, and the 4500W can cut to 12mm, but the processing cost is high, because this is a highly reflective material, and laser cutting uses focused The high-power-density laser beam irradiates the workpiece, making the irradiated material rapidly melt, vaporize, ablate or reach the ignition point, and at the same time blow off the molten material with the help of the high-speed airflow coaxial with the beam, so as to realize the cutting of the workpiece.
Is the cut surface of laser cut aluminum sheet as smooth as cutting other materials?
The incision of the aluminum plate is also smooth, and the aluminum plate is only a highly reflective material, which requires a large laser generator. The cutting gas is the same as other materials, and it is cut with nitrogen, which will not cause the surface to be rough.
Aluminum plate adopts laser cutting features:
Summary: According to personal experience, the price of carbon dioxide laser machine is relatively low, and the power of laser generator is high. You can try to cut aluminum plate when you need it. Note that what I said above is to coat the aluminum plate with a black light-absorbing color to prevent the reflection from burning the lens or laser head. As for the fiber laser machine, it is better not to cut the aluminum plate, the gain outweighs the loss, choose other ways to process the aluminum plate.
Precautions for laser cutting aluminum plate: Aluminum plate is a high-reflection material, which will cause great damage to the laser, so use it as little as possible. It is recommended to process the aluminum plate below 6 mm by CNC punching machine, and above 6 mm by water cutting.
1050 Aluminum Coil belongs to the commercially pure wrought 1000 series of alloys with a purity of 99.5% aluminum. This alloy is usually used for cold rolling or extrusion. It has the characteristics of high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity.
Same as 1050 aluminum sheet, 1060 aluminum sheet also belongs to 1 series pure aluminum sheet，Commonly used in lithium battery soft connection, bus bar, road sign, charging pile, aluminum gasket, billboard building exterior wall decoration，and so on.
5052 Aluminum Coil is an alloy composed of 2.5% magnesium and 0.25% chromium and is one of the most promising anti-rust aluminum materials
Diamond plate aluminum sheets 4x8 is available in 6061-T6 and 3003-H14 sizes. they have higher strength, wear resistance, load-bearing, machinability, corrosion resistance, etc. Therefore, popular in construction, manufacturing, vehicles, ships and various fields.
Thin aluminum sheet typically refers to a flat piece of aluminum material that has a thickness of less than 6mm (0.24 inches).
8021 aluminum foil has the characteristics of cleanliness and hygiene, and can be made into an integrated packaging material with many other packaging materials. In addition, the surface printing effect of 8021 aluminum foil is better than other materials. Therefore, 8021 aluminum foil alloy can also be used in the field of food packaging.
