If you are buying a new laser machine, one of the most frequently asked questions is “how much laser gas will I require?“. This answer is different for each laser operation and varies depending on the specific laser machine model and the cutting operation. There is a range of core data points that are required to feed in to a laser gas calculation.
Your laser manufacturer should be able to provide the necessary data points. However, if you would like a better understanding of the data that is required we provide more support below.
Regardless of the size of your laser operation, we always recommend to start with cylinder packs for assist gas. Cylinder packs (also known as manifolded pallets) are multiple cylinders connected with a dual outlet.
We have some of the largest volume 300 bar packs in the industry with 40% more gas than conventional cylinder packs offering significant operational cost benefits via increased uptime and reduced handling.
If your operation is large enough to benefit from a liquid supply, we will be able to size and specify your tank more accurately based on the running data from cylinder packs. We can then ensure a seamless transition to liquid.
If you would like a more detailed calculation please contact us and ask for a free laser gas consumption consultation.
