How to cut extra thick plate

In the process of cnc machining aluminum plates, the cutting methods are different for plates of different materials and thicknesses. Taking aluminum materials as an example, the thinner the material, the easier it is to cut, while the thicker the material, the more difficult it is to cut and subsequent processing. What can be done to make the processing of some extra thick aluminum profiles more smooth?

When processing extra thick aluminum profiles, pay more attention to the laser cutting method and price.

  • 1. Before cutting extra thick plates, it is necessary to select their specific cutting methods. Different regions have different ways of cutting plates, and the cutting effect will also be different. Generally, when cutting the plate with the help of optical fiber laser, its speed is relatively fast, the incision is relatively small, and the cutting process is more and better, but it also has certain limitations, that is, the plate cannot be too thick, otherwise it is not easy to operate. For the way of cutting plates with high-pressure water, the aluminum profile can be deformed first and then cut off smoothly. Although the final cutting process is better, the cost will also be relatively high.
  • 2. Price options. Before cutting the plate, pay attention to decide which cutting method to choose according to the performance requirements of the subsequent production objects. Generally, for plates with high process requirements, it is best to choose the cutting method of optical fiber laser for cutting, while for materials with low cutting process requirements, they can be cut directly with the help of flame and low-temperature plasma cutting.

Compared with the processing of ordinary materials, the processing of Aluminum Extrusion profiles will be slightly more difficult in terms of cutting or subsequent shape manufacturing technology. In the actual cutting and processing process, we must consider it from a practical point of view, so that the whole process can become better and bring more benefits to the enterprise or its own development.
