Why Does The Laser Engraver Produce Burrs When Cutting Metal

Why Does The Laser Engraver Produce Burrs When Cutting Metal

Atomstack laser engraving machine can cut metal materials with high precision. It has the characteristics of fast cutting speed, high precision and good efficiency. It is suitable for metal cutting applications in many industries. But when cutting metal, burrs or residues often appear, these problems will seriously affect the quality and use of products, so we need to take effective measures to avoid these problems. This article will introduce the reasons why laser engraving machines produce burrs when cutting metal and how to avoid them from the following aspects.

The Cause Of The Glitch

1. The quality of the cutting head

The cutting head is an important part of the Laserpecker laser engraving machine when cutting metal, and the cutting quality is directly affected by it. If the cutting head is not of good quality or has been severely worn, it is easy to generate burrs during the cutting process.

2. Improper setting of cutting parameters

Cutting parameters are an important factor affecting the cutting quality. If the cutting parameters are not set properly, it will lead to problems such as poor cutting quality and more burrs. For example, excessive power, speed, and gas pressure can cause the metal surface to melt insufficiently, resulting in the formation of burrs.

3. Poor material surface condition

If there is scale, dirt, paint, etc. on the surface of the cutting material, the same Atomstack S30 Pro laser engraving machine will produce burrs during the cutting process. Because these substances will hinder the cutting head, resulting in poor gas flow, which will reduce the cutting quality and generate burrs.

How To Avoid Glitches

1. Appropriate selection of cutting head

Choosing the right cutting head is an important step in avoiding burrs. The better the cutting head, the better the cut quality. Therefore, we need to choose a suitable cutting head according to our own needs, and check for wear and damage before use.

2. Set the appropriate cutting parameters

The setting of cutting parameters directly affects the cutting quality. Therefore, before cutting, we need to set the cutting parameters reasonably according to the specific situation. In general, power, speed, and gas pressure all need to be properly controlled to ensure that the metal surface can be melted thoroughly without overdoing it.

3. Treat the surface of the material

Before cutting, we need to treat the surface of the material. If there are scale, paint, dirt and other impurities on the surface, it needs to be removed by mechanical or chemical methods to ensure the cutting quality.

4. Use special technology to deal with burrs

Sometimes, there are still some problems in the process of avoiding glitches. At this time, we can use some special techniques to deal with glitches. For example, use sandblasting to remove surface burrs after cutting; or use chemical methods to remove surface oxide skin, etc.

In short, the key to avoiding the burrs of the Atomstack S20 Pro laser engraving machine when cutting metal is to choose the cutting head reasonably, set the appropriate cutting parameters, treat the material surface well, and use special technology to deal with the burrs. Only through the above measures, can the laser engraving machine effectively avoid burrs during the cutting process, and finally obtain high-quality products.
