Why laser cutting?
Why do people use laser cutting?
The fact that laser cutting technology offers reduced contamination of the workpiece presents certain advantages over traditional mechanical cutting techniques. Laser cutting also allows us to cut small diameter holes with complex detail and good edge quality in either sheet, plate, tube or box section.
Why are laser used for cutting metals?
With a wavelength of only 1064 nanometers fiber lasers produce an extremely small spot size (up to 100 times smaller compared to the CO2) making it ideal for cutting reflective metal material. This is one of the main advantages of Fiber compared to CO2.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of laser cutting?
Some of the benefits include that it can cut through all materials and does not require tooling costs. Also, it does not experience wearing out of the surfaces and works with high accuracy and precision. The major disadvantage of laser beam machining is that it requires a massive amount of money to maintain.
Is laser cutting environmentally friendly?
The average fibre laser uses 45% less gas; a measurement that’s more eco-friendly than previous cutters. Efficiency is 200% more than a standard CO2, something that has a notable impact on both short and long term benefits.
What can we do with laser cutting machine?
Common laser cutters are primarily used to cut materials like wood, some plastics, and paper and cardboard, although there are more powerful laser cutters that can cut through metals and much thicker materials. Laser cutters can be very quick, and can churn out designed parts in just a few minutes.
What things can be made in a laser cutter?
The laser can cut or etch. The materials that the laser can cut materials like wood, paper, cork, and some kinds of plastics. Etching can be done on almost anything, wood, cardboard, aluminum, stainless steel, plastic, marble, stone, tile, and glass.
