Gas Nozzle

For Laser System Integration: A Gas Jet Nozzle Option
Gas assisted laser cutting

 

A high pressure gas jet nozzle enhances laser cutting and provides the following features as an industrial laser processing accessory:

 

What it does:


• Utilizes gas pressure to assist laser cutting, usually air
• Provides cooling of laser generated heat
• Slag removal
• Inert gas shield (N2)
• Reactive gas (O2) cut

 

Gas assisted laser processing requires clean, dry gas.  If air is used, devices are needed to filter and dry the air plus pre- and post-regulators to set air pressure and a valve to control on/off.  Laserod can supply these devices, typically for wall mounting and connection to your air compressor.

Nitrogen

Oxygen

Cut steels

 

When using air for the nozzle, higher pressures up to 60 psi are useful for cooling.  Air serves both a cooling and slag removal function.

 

Nitrogen, as an inert gas shield, removes oxygen from around the work site. Whereas, oxygen, as a nozzle gas, creates an exothermic reaction to “set the material on fire”.

 

Specifications: 

• Usual Pressure:  60 psi

• Mounting:  Standard M26 thread

• Option: Gas supply system (filters, desiccators, regulators & valve)

• Note: incompatible with galvanometer beam scanners
