## How thick can the fiber laser Cutting Machine cut sheet metal?

Fiber laser cutting machine is an intelligent cutting equipment with excellent performance. In the field of sheet metal processing, fiber laser cutting machine can cut carbon steel, silicon steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, copper and other metal materials. However, depending on the material, power and thickness, the fiber laser cutting thickness of the laser cutting machine is also different, so how thick can it cut sheet metal?

If it is simply calculated in accordance with the theoretical situation, the fiber laser cutting machine can cut an extra 1mm thickness of sheet metal for every additional 100w of power. But this is not the case. Let's take a 500w fiber laser cutting machine as an example. It can cut 5mm sheet metal. But when the equipment is in operation, when the electrical energy is converted into light energy and then converted into heat energy, there will be a certain amount of energy loss, so the actual cutting thickness value is not a theoretical value.

Based on years of experience, lets share with you the reference values of fiber laser cutting machines with different powers and different sheet metal thicknesses:

1. 500W fiber laser cutting machine cutting sheet metal thickness: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 2mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 2mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 3mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 6mm;

2. 1000W fiber laser cutting machine cutting sheet metal thickness: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 3mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 3mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 5mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 10mm;

3. The thickness of the sheet Metal Cut by the 2000W fiber laser cutting machine: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 5mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 5mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 16mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 8mm;

4. 3000W fiber laser cutting machine cutting sheet metal thickness: aluminum plate maximum thickness 8mm; copper plate maximum thickness 8mm; stainless steel maximum thickness 10mm; carbon steel maximum thickness 20mm;

5. The thickness of the sheet metal cut by 4000W fiber laser cutting machine: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 14mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 10mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 16mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 25mm;

6. The thickness of the sheet metal cut by the 6000W fiber laser cutting machine: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 20mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 14mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 25mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 25mm;

7. 8000W fiber laser cutting machine cutting sheet metal thickness: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 30mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 16mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 30mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 25mm;

8. The thickness of the sheet metal cut by the 10000W fiber laser cutting machine: the maximum thickness of aluminum plate is 45mm; the maximum thickness of copper plate is 20mm; the maximum thickness of stainless steel is 45mm; the maximum thickness of carbon steel is 35mm;

The thickness of the sheet metal cut by the fiber laser cutting machine above is for reference only. The actual cutting ability is closely related to the quality of the fiber laser cutting machine, cutting environment, auxiliary gas, cutting speed, and even operation methods. The higher the power of the fiber laser cutting machine, the thicker the sheet metal can be cut. Therefore, you need to determine the thickness of all your cutting materials when you buy it to avoid buying a power that is not high enough to achieve good cutting results.
