Although metal laser cutter and plasma cutter both can cut metal materials, there are many differences between two cutting machine. Today i will share their differences to you.

Metal laser cutting machine is equipped with the most advanced imported fiber laser source which generates powerful laser focused on objects to cause instant melting and evaporation. Automatic cutting is controlled by digital mechanic system. 

Plasma cutting machine is a new type of thermal cutting equipment, it is a processing method that uses the heat of the high temperature plasma arc to melt and evaporate the metal part and eliminate the molten metal by the momentum of the high speed plasma.


Compared with plasma cutter, metal laser cutter are specially used to cut thin metal sheet while plasma cutter are not suitable for cutting thin metal sheet. Fiber laser cutting machine can equip with laser power from 500W to 6000W, both fiber laser cutter and plasma cutting machine can cut different thickness metal sheet. Plasma laser cutting machine is specially used for cutting thick metal sheet. Metal Laser cutting equipment have faster cutting speed and higher precision, there is no need for further processing. The cutting edge of metal materials are very smooth. In terms of cutting precision, fiber laser cutter can reach within 0.2mm while the plasma cutter can reach within 1mm.

For the maintenance cost of two equipment, plasma cutter have lower maintenance cost. All in all, these two equipment have their advantages and disadvantages, customers can choose depend on their cutting need.
