Laser cutting is to concentrate the high-intensity laser beam emitted by the laser generator together, and then irradiate it on the surface of the material. The laser energy is rapidly converted into heat energy, so that the temperature in the irradiated area of the material quickly reaches the melting point and even the boiling point of the material, and the material is exposed to high temperature. Under the guidance of the numerical control system, with the continuous relative movement of the workpiece and the laser beam, there is a continuous interaction between the two. The melted residue is blown away, and the holes are continuously formed into narrow slits to complete laser-cuts.

Forty years after Einstein proposed the laser theory, in 1957, Chinese scientists established China's first optical research institute, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Changchun) Institute of Optics and Precision Instruments and Mechanics ("Institute of Optics and Mechanics" for short). "), under the leadership of the older generation of experts, a group of young scientific and technological workers has grown rapidly, and in a short period of time has gathered an innovative young and middle-aged research team, and put forward a large number of ideas and ideas to improve the brightness, unit color, and coherence of the light source. Experimental program. With the advent of the world's first laser generator in 1960, the research and development of laser generators in China also began to speed up. In 1961, the first ruby laser generator in China was successfully developed, and the first carbon dioxide laser generator was developed in 1965.
In just a few years after the first CO2 laser was developed in China, China's laser technology has developed rapidly. In terms of basic research and key technologies, a series of new concepts, new methods and new technologies have been proposed and implemented, many of which have Ingenuity, and began to gradually use the laser in the field of material cutting.
Since 1978, laser cutting technology has obtained unprecedented opportunities for development, laser technology has achieved unprecedented progress, and a number of internationally advanced achievements have emerged. Laser cutting technology has basically achieved full coverage in the field of material processing in China.
In 2014, the fiber laser cutting machine for metal sheet cutting came out. The laser with only 500W of power that year quickly became the favored object of the market due to the advantages of high cutting efficiency and high processing precision. With the development of laser technology, 1500W and 3000W power gradually appeared. Until 2016, Chinese laser cutter manufacturers broke the limit of 6000W power and launched 8000W fiber laser cutting machine, which opened the competition of laser power. In 2017, the 10,000 watt laser cutting machine came out, and the Chinese fiber laser cutting machine market began to develop into the 10,000 watt era. Until now, 15,000W, 20,000W, 30,000W, 40,000W, and more high laser powers came into being. Moreover, the world's laser generator manufacturers are constantly introducing higher power fiber laser generators.
In 2023, China's laser cutter industry will form an industrial scale concentration. CO2 laser cutting machines are concentrated in Liaocheng, Shandong, and fiber laser cutting machines are concentrated in Jinan, Shandong and Wuhan, Hubei.

CO2 Laser Generator
Since laser technology was introduced to cut thin metal sheets, CO2 laser generators have dominated the market. The CO2 laser light source requires a lot of energy to excite nitrogen molecules to collide with CO2 molecules (laser gas), prompting them to emit photons, and finally forming a laser beam that can cut through the metal. The molecular activity in the cavity releases light as well as heat, which requires a cooling system to cool the laser gas. This means that more energy is consumed during the cooling process, further reducing energy efficiency.
Fiber Laser Generator
The machine using the fiber laser generator occupies a small area, the laser light source and the cooling system are also smaller; there is no laser gas pipeline, and no need to adjust the lens. The 2000W or 3000W fiber laser light source only needs 50% of the energy consumption of the 4000W or 6000W CO2 laser light source to achieve the same performance, with faster speed, lower energy consumption and less impact on the environment.
The fiber laser generator uses solid-state diodes to pump the molecules in the double-clad ytterbium-doped fiber. The stimulated emission of light passes through the fiber core multiple times, and then the laser is output through the transmission fiber to the focusing head for cutting. Since all intermolecular collisions occur in the fiber, no laser gas is needed, so the energy required is greatly reduced-about one-third of the CO2 laser generator. As the less heat is generated, the volume of the cooler can be reduced accordingly. In short, while achieving the same performance, the overall energy consumption of fiber laser generators is 70% lower than that of CO2 laser generators.

In the past years, I have only used plasma cutters. I wanted something fast with high precision. This fiber laser cutting machine fit the bill. I wired it up for 220v use. It performed as described and cut through 1/8 steel plate with no trouble. Super handy metal cutting tool for beginners, but the only regret is that the initial investment cost is higher for business starters.
I use this metal laser cutter to cut stainless steel sheet of 1/4in x 4ft x 8ft to make signs for my advertising business. So far so good. It is easy enough to work with, and cuts well, like a hot knife through butter. Just hope to continue to use for a long time in future.
The software came with the machine is easy to use for my business. With remote assistance from STYLECNC, the software installation and setup can be completed in 45 minutes. Excellent customer service and technical support.
Also, 1064nm fiber laser beam is dangerous to cause eye injury and hand burns, wear leather gloves and safety glasses when using this machine. Overall, take care.
I try to buy well made laser machines that are worth my money, this unit seems to qualify. No real complaints about this cutting tool. Great value. Would highly recommend it.
STJ1390 is a great piece of laser cutter for beginners. I bought it to start a small advertising shop. Got it in 12 days, and everything was pretty good. Easy to put together in 1 hour. The software was easy to use, but the installation and setting took me some time to learn. Many thanks to the customer service team, which was awesome in troubleshooting and I would give them more credit. I used it to cut signs with plywood and acrylic, and got fine results with clean and smooth edges. I think this laser has a lot of potential to create many things, and I will try it on more materials. Overall, it is worth your money.
I was wary of purchasing a Chinese-made laser cutter off the internet, but the reviews convinced me to give it a try. Got this unit in 28 days. No trouble in assembly and parameter setting. I've tried it to cut 304 and 316 stainless steel plates and pipes for kitchenware and gotten the cleanest cuts. It's a powerful all-in-one machine for both sheet metals and tubes. No regrets with the buying of this great cutter.
