Laser Cutting Benefits

Laser Cutting

State of the art Laser Cutting is fast, flexible and cost effective. In most cases, laser cutting offers significant benefits over short run stamping, wire EDM, plasma cutting, nibbling, water jet cutting, and NC milling. Lasers are capable of cutting steel, stainless steel, super alloys, copper, aluminum, and brass. They also cut non-metallic materials such as ceramic, quartz, plastic, rubber, wood, and certain composite structures. The laser is so fast and so repeatable that it is particularly ideal for high production volumes associated with fully automated or semi-automated tooling applications.

The Process

Laser cutting is nothing more than cutting with a miniature computer controlled torch. Focused laser light is used as the heat source to both melt and vaporize material in its path. Assist gasses are also used to aid in additional heat generation and material removal. As a result, a very narrow and consistent path or "kerf" is created. Many materials, whether hard, soft, ferrous or non-ferrous can be precisely cut with a laser, by varying power, feed rate, focus, gas type and pressure, etc.
