    Hi, Any updates? How does you machines running? We are also planing to buy a laser to cut 6mm 5052 aluminum... I have no laser experience, just some CNC plasma. Happy to get any suggestions.

    You need a 3kW fiber laser to cut alu that thick. It's a tricky material to laser cut - much better to use a abrasive water jet cutter.

    Thanks for your input Epil. Water will not work for us though as we have very tight corners (less than R0.15mm) and time is also of concern (water is slower, right? Or?). One seller told that an IPG YLR 2000W is about 50% more efficient than a "regular" 2000w".

    Cutting speed of 6mm Alu is 700-1000mm/m vs 1000-1500mm/m according tho them....

    Or are these unrealistic numbers in the real work?

    My 1KW machine is from Golden laser - Wuhan. Purchased and installed 2.5 years ago. I spent one week in the factory for training. I have been using this machine since jan 2017. The machine is cutting different types of materials daily for almost 8 hours/day (Carbon steel, Stainless steel, aluminim, brass and galvanised steel) we had some components failure which is normal for any machine. All were replaced with no delay free of charge. All components I selected for my machine are from reputed well known companies like servo motors/controller Yaskawa from Japan, IPG (Germany) for laser source, Raytools (Swiss) for cutting head etc.. The comany engineers are very professional knowledgeable and very helpfull. I can witness here that the support up to now was excellent and better than many western companies. My business has grown very rapidely and I m now discussing with the company the purchase of a second machine.

    This is my experience.
    My business is laser cutting service
    you can contact me for any help

    Hi
    I confirm what epilotdk said. 3kW will cut your 6mm Aluminum like a cake.

    Zaatar, I had a look at the Golden Laser website - a good range of products. I have a little workshop that does Industrial insulation and a small part of that is sheet metal work which are being cut with nibblers at the moment. I am planning to tap into the architectural metal art market now and want to get a fibre laser cutter. I have a few options - Build the table and gantry myself and get someone to install the electronics to get it going, or plan B is I can lay my hands on a 150w Co2 laser in very good condition and maybe just change the CO2 laser to Fibre? My wife is also an arty farty and she would like to cut non-metal materials as well. What do you guys reckon?

    Razzmeister - can't just add a fiber source to a CO2 machine. You need a proper metal cutting head and a controller for it. It's heavy so you need servo motors to move the gantry. You need to run the fiber, gas tubing and water cooling tubing to the head. By the time you are done you might as well have bought a proper fiber laser cutter. BTW, the fiber source is the expensive bit - a 500W source will set you back app. USD 10K.

    If you’re not looking at tight tolerances, have you thought about CNC plasma?

    For ‘art’ pieces and architectural it is probably much better value for money - plus you can attach it to that cheap CO2 and run them both, with appropriate protection from power spikes.

    Zaatar, are you able to send me more info on the machine you purchased - model number etc. please? I need to get the ball rolling and are not sure where to start.

    Ladaero, I thought about plasma but my other half wants to do non-metal materials as well and therefore the idea of getting a 1.5m x 2.5m 150w CO2 laser cnc on the al-cheapo and add a Fibre head to the same head system.
