Laser cutting is the technology that uses a laser to cut metal. The word "laser" stands for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation" - a process that works by stimulated emission. It is delivered in the form of a beam that can be manipulated with various reflective surfaces. A controlled high power laser beam is focused on the workpiece and the resulting heat energy melts or vaporizes the material. Any resulting molten material is blown away by pressurized gas during the cutting process creating a high-quality edge.
Laser cutting is precise, clean cutting and often does not require further processing. This process is recommended for carbon and stainless steel sheet metal, and intricate patterns. A fast, repeatable and highly accurate process which is ideal for high production runs.
Benefits of Laser Cutting:
Custom laser cut parts produce greater consistency from part to part. Precision sheet metal parts can be made by laser cutting the parts due to the ability to hold tighter tolerances. Laser cutting gives you cleaner, burr-free cuts, quicker production, minimal operator intervention and greater accuracy which equates to less wasted metal & time. This lower costs to the manufacturer & results in savings to the customer.
