The operation requirements of fiber laser cutting machines are not very high. All you need to do is to find a person who knows how to make mechanical drawings, as well as an operator to control the machine.

First, the mechanical drafter inputs the drawing to the computer console. Next, the operator loads the plate onto the machine tool and then opens the start button to complete the processing.

Some customers may ask that there are too many buttons on the operation table of the fiber laser cutting machine. They do not know their purpose and operation method. In fact, there is no need to worry too much about it. Generally, after reaching a sales agreement with the customer, the laser cutter manufacturer will provide free machine operation training to the customers until they have all mastered it. At the same time, the laser machine will also be shipped with some teaching videos and application manuals for the convenience of customers learning to operate.

Therefore, the operation of a fiber laser cutting machine is not as difficult as the customer thinks. Only simple training is required.

I. How Does A Fiber Laser Cutter Work ?

CNC fiber laser cutting machine adopts the advanced fiber laser to output high-energy, high-quality, and high-density laser beams. And then, the laser beam gathers on the surface of the workpiece, so that the area irradiated by the ultra-fine focus spot on the workpiece is instantly melted and vaporized. At the same time, the focus spot irradiation position is moved by the numerical control mechanical system to realize automatic metal laser cutting.

The following video is a demo of the fiber laser cutting machine cut metal sheet and metal square tube. Here you can see that our laser cutter can easily and fast find the edge of the metal automatically.

II. How to Operate the Fiber Laser Cutting Machine for Beginners ?

1. Preparation

  • Before using the laser cutting machine, please be sure to read and understand all the safety instructions attached to it.
  • Stably fix the metal material to be cut on the working table.
  • According to the material and thickness of the metal sheet, adjust the equipment parameters, such as laser power, cutting speed, focal length, etc.

2. Create files for laser cutting

Carry out the programming of the workpiece drawing and the layout of the whole plate cutting. And then transfer it into the cutting software system to make a cut. Please note that the metal laser cutting machine needs a vector path as an input file.

3. Start laser cutting

  • Try to cut the material. After over cutting, carefully check the verticality, roughness, burrs, and dregs of the cut surface.
  •  Analyze the cutting surface and inspect the sample. And then adjust the parameters in time accordingly f there is any problem. Adjustments might be made many times until the cutting meets the process requirements.

III. 5 Precautions for Operating Fiber Laser Cutting Machines

  1. Before starting, please make sure that your CNC laser cutter is in good condition. In addition, turn off the main switching power supply of all equipment every time when the work is over.
  2. Do not touch or adjust the cutting head or cutting material when the fiber laser engraver is working. In case of a safety incident and laser burns.
  3. When processing materials, the operator needs to observe the hole cutting process at all times. If there is an emergency, please press the red emergency stop button immediately. Otherwise, you’ll have big trouble.
  4. A hand-held fire extinguisher must be placed near the CNC laser machine to prevent open flames when it is cutting and engraving metal sheets or tubes.
  5. One more thing that needs to be paid special attention to is that the operator should know all switches of the fiber laser engraving machine, so that he can turn off the switch in time in case of emergency.
