Are laser cutting machines dangerous?

Laser cutting machine allows for precise measurements and for users to get the exact dimensions. But the process can do harm to our health because of the harmful fumes emitted. It is more dangerous if workspaces do not have the air filtration systems.

Laser cutting machines are classified by the American National Standards Institute, as a Class 1 laser. They are not overly hazardous that they do not emit high levels of energy. Laser beams are hazardous during the cutting or engraving process because air contaminants are released. Harmful emissions are usually associated with Class 3B or 4 lasers. Chemical vapors, aerosols or smoke can be emitted when a laser beam is interacting with various materials.

During the cutting process, high temperature causes the surrounding air to expand. Once materials are cut by the laser cutting machine, they will emit gases that rapidly expand and release dangerous particles.

Is a laser cutting machine strong enough to cut a hand?

While laser cutting machine is relatively safer compared to conventional methods, the operators still practice with caution as the laser is powerful enough to burn skin and cut a hand.

However, the possibility that an accident would occur by a laser cutting machine is very low because it has a safety lid that can be closed or opened at any given time. The cutting process is done in a safe and controlled environment.

The disadvantage of laser cutting machine is that it cannot work on thicker metals. Its cutting capability depends on the material thickness and laser power. But even with this limitation, it doesn’t mean that the cutting power should be underestimated because it is still strong enough to cut a hand in a matter of seconds.

What are the factors affecting laser cutting machine price?

We all know that brand is an added value of laser cutting machine. The brand effect is reflected in the machine quality, kits, parts, performance, and after-sales service. The laser cutting machine of big brands will have higher prices than those of small factories.

The price of large-sized laser cutting machines is higher than that of small-sized ones. The price of the customized laser cutting machine is higher than that of the regular-sized ones.

The laser is the core optical component of the laser cutting machine. Different laser generators have different laser beam qualities. Imported lasers are superior to domestic lasers in terms of stability and beam quality. For the same brand laser generator, the greater the laser power, the higher the price.

Other key components mainly include guide rails, rack and pinion, motor, and water chiller. They also affect the price.
