The process of using a laser beam to cut, engrave, or score materials is known as laser cutting. It has many benefits for, including higher accuracy, less waste, increased flexibility, and the ability to handle complex cuts.
This process provides cleaner, tighter cuts than machining, and it can be automated via computer programs. It’s an ideal solution for delicate work, complex shapes, and projects requiring precision.
Benefits of Using Laser Technology for Your Parts
From blank preparation to prototypes and end-use production, this method provides versatility to use across a wide range of applications.
As a rule, laser cutting has lower setup costs and can be used to create one prototype or thousands of production parts.
- Less Waste
The precise cuts of this method allow more components to be produced from a single sheet of metal.
Laser cutting can be used for many different tasks, not just complete cuts. Engraving, marking, or drilling can be done on nearly any material including sheet metal, composites, textiles, plastics, and wood.
The focused beam of light provides pinpoint accuracy and precise cuts, up to .0003 mm. It’s the best choice for applications that require a high degree of precision.
- No Warping or Damages
The process is an excellent choice for thin materials because it creates a very small Heat Affected Zone and limits warping and distortion.
Many industries and sectors that rely on fabrication can choose laser cutting for their manufactured parts, including:
- Medical and Medical Devices
- Tools, Molds, and Dies
