In the purchase of laser cutting machine, in the face of the laser market cohabitation, really a bit chaotic feeling, especially at present in China, a lot of laser cutting machine manufacturers focus on the price competition. Let the customer more and more confused, then how much does a laser cutting machine cost?
Laser cutting equipment is mainly divided into optical fiber laser cutting machine, YAG laser cutting machine and CO2 laser cutting machine, although they are laser cutting equipment, but the price is different, even the same kind of products, there is also a difference in price, so what are the factors that affect the cost of the laser cutting machine?
1. Laser cutting machine accessories
Similarly, a laser cutting machine adopts different parts, such as lasers, motors, laser lens, laser tubes, control systems, all of which will affect the price of laser cutting machines. STYLECNC give examples to illustrate:
Motor is related to the precision of laser cutting machine, the cost of a famous brand motor is different from the motor cost of a common brand motor. The precision of laser cutting machine will be different as well.
B. Laser Lens
Laser lens is related to the power of laser cutting machine. The price gap is very large, and the gap between the effect and the service life is also very large.
C. Laser Tube
This is the heart of a laser cutting machine. The brand and quality of the laser tube are different, and the price is different. The service life of a good laser tube is usually about 3000 hours.
2. Different Models
The price of different models in the same factory (different power, different cutting format) will be different, the user needs to choose the most suitable power and format according to their own needs so as to make the best use of cutting, and bring higher returns for the enterprise value.
3. Equipment Difference
The cutting quality and speed of the optical fiber laser cutting machine, the YAG laser cutting machine and the CO2 laser cutting machine are different, and the price is also different.
4. After-sales Service
To buy large laser equipment, after-sales service is a very key problem. The full service can guarantee the safety and timely maintenance of the user's equipment. The laser tube of the laser cutting machine, the reflecting lens are all consumables, have a certain service life, and need to be replaced after the expiration. This needs the manufacturer to provide the powerful after-sales service guarantee, and provide these consumables in time. Different manufacturers, after-sales service also has advantages and disadvantages. So there will be differences in price.
5. Mechanical Assembly Quality
In order to reduce costs, some manufacturers use thin iron sheets to make machine shells. Some users usually can't see them. But for a long time, the rack will deform, which will affect the cutting accuracy of laser cutting machines. A good laser cutting machine should be made of frame structure, welded with high quality steel and made of high quality cold rolled steel plate to make the shell. When users buy the machine, see if the quality can be found by using the frame structure, the thickness and strength of the shell iron.
6. Functions of Laser Cutting Machine
Familiar with laser cutting machine laments, now the laser cutting machine configuration has increased so much, the price has fallen compared to a few years ago, how gratifying. But now some people say, don't be fooled those external things all live, if compared to the reliability and maintenance services convenient and affordable to many new equipment than a few years ago. In my opinion, users should pay more attention to the cost performance of laser cutting machines. The "Appropriate Configuration with Affordable Price" laser cutting machine is our best choice. Many users go into a misunderstanding. They hope that the laser cutting machine that they will purchase is "all-around". Everything can be done with the laser machine, which is actually wrong.
Above is the six factor that affects the cost of laser cutting machine. What kind of cutting machine should be customized according to its own needs and budget, and the thickness of cutting material can be decided by specific power requirements.
For metal laser cutting machines, the price range is from $2500.00 to $300000.00
For Non-metal laser cutting machines, the price range is from $2200.00 to $9900.00
For mixed laser cutting machines, the price range is from $4000.00 to $16000.00
