How to avoid laser cutting machine burrs

The most common problem of laser cutting machines in the processing process is that they are prone to burrs. In layman’s terms, sharp corners, burrs, and other irregular metal parts appear at the transition of the work-piece surface. However, common does not mean that the generation of burrs can be accepted. It directly affects the dimensional accuracy, shape and position accuracy, and surface roughness of the processed parts reduces product quality and brings subsequent inspection, assembly, use performance, and aesthetics. There are many problems, so burrs should be avoided as much as possible.

Common causes and solutions for glitches

Reason 1: The up and down positions of the laser beam focus generated by the laser cutting machine are deviated, resulting in energy not converging on the work-piece, and the work-piece is not fully vaporized, which increases the amount of slag produced and is not easy to blow off, which makes it easier to produce burrs.

Solution: Adjust the position of the laser beam focus, and adjust it to the best state according to the offset position it produces.

Reason 2: The output power of the laser cutting machine is not enough to effectively vaporize the metal, resulting in excessive slag and burrs.

Solution: Check whether the laser cutting machine is working normally. If it is abnormal, it needs to be repaired and maintained in time; if it is normal, check whether the output value is correct.

Reason 3: The cutting line speed of the laser cutting machine is too slow, which damages the surface quality of the cutting surface and produces burrs.

Solution: Adjust and increase the cutting line speed in time to reach the normal value.

Reason 4: The purity of the auxiliary gas of the laser cutting machine is not up to the required standard, which will also cause the work-piece to produce burrs.

Solution: Replace the auxiliary gas with higher purity.

Reason 5: The working time of the laser cutting machine is too long, which makes the equipment appear unstable, which will also cause burrs.

Solution: Turn off the laser cutting machine and restart it after a period of time, so that it can get enough rest.
