Under normal circumstances, when customers purchase laser cutting machines, they will consider how long the laser cutting machine can recover the cost and the profit of the laser cutting machine in a day. They are good at the relative speed and cutting ability of high-power laser cutting machines. This is also a key issue for customers to purchase equipment, so they have advantages in terms of acceleration and cutting costs. Now, let’s analyze this problem for you.
Differences between YAG laser cutting machine and optical fiber laser cutting machine
1) Power: The power of optical fiber laser cutting machine is relatively large. The common ones on the market are 500w to 1000w. Many manufacturers are developing higher power 2000w optical fiber laser cutting machine, which can meet the production needs of enterprises to a greater extent. YAG laser cutting machines are all low-power laser cutting machines;
2) Cutting performance: the optical fiber laser cutting machine is mainly aimed at the cutting of sheet metal, which is 3-4 times faster than the speed of yag, and can cut a large number of sheet materials quickly. The thick plates that can be cut by YAG laser cutting machine are basically within 8mm, and the cutting is accurate;
3) Photoelectric conversion rate: the photoelectric conversion rate of the optical fiber laser cutting machine is between 25% – 30%, while the photoelectric conversion rate of the YAG laser cutting machine is only 2% – 3%. The optical fiber laser cutting machine is energy-saving, environmental protection, power consumption, supporting cooling system, etc;
4) Use cost: under the same conditions, the use cost of optical fiber laser cutting machine is lower than that of YAG laser cutting machine when cutting the same materials
How long can the laser cutting machine process to recover the cost
YAG laser cutting machine and optical fiber laser cutting machine are two kinds of common equipment on the market, but the customer’s choice of equipment mainly depends on the required processing products. The best one is the one that suits you. We have analyzed the processing cost of these two laser cutting machines before. The processing cost of 850W solid laser cutting machine cutting 1mm stainless steel is about 300000 yuan, and the processing cost of 500W optical fiber laser cutting machine cutting 1mm stainless steel (using oxygen) is about 18 yuan.
If there is a lot of business, we calculate that the solid laser cutting machine will cost 672 yuan per day and the optical fiber laser cutting machine will cost 432 yuan per day if we do not stop the machine 24 hours a day. Generally, the processing time is not fixed. It is basically processing with supplied materials, which is relatively flexible. The daily output value of solid laser cutting machine can reach 1900 yuan, and that of optical fiber laser cutting machine can reach 3120 yuan.
Calculation of machine wear and tear, consumption costs and personnel salaries. Cars, planes and mechanical equipment cannot be used at a certain age. Laser cutting machine is no exception. A laser cutting machine is normally used for 6 to 8 years. In addition to deducting employees’ salaries, machine consumables, machine wear and tear, the rest is profit every day.
The main business volume is sufficient and the cost recovery is relatively fast. However, if it is a company, it will take quite a long time to recover the cost. Generally, companies only process their own products, and the relative processing volume is very limited. Some customers’ equipment is just for their own convenience. Such customers can consider buying small laser cutting machines, and the cost recovery will be faster. It is the best sentence that suits you.
Daily profit of YAG laser cutting machine: 1900-672-200=1028 yuan; Daily profit of optical fiber laser cutting machine: 3120-432-200=2488 yuan; Cost recovery time of 300000 yuan YAG laser cutting machine: 300000/1028=292 days; The cost recovery time of 700000 yuan fiber laser cutting machine: 700000/2488=281 days; The above is an ideal processing estimate. However, according to the response of the actual customer, the 850W solid laser cutting machine takes about one and a half years to recover the cost when the business processing volume is relatively large. The recovery time of 500W fiber laser cutter is about 2 to 2.5 years.
Therefore, it is suggested that customers can choose their own laser cutting machine according to their own processing business volume and budget, and recover the equipment cost as soon as possible.
