3 Types of Laser Cutting Services That Guarantee Accuracy

March 13, 2020

Accuracy is definitely the most important aspect of laser cutting services. Indeed, fabricators have benefitted greatly from the consistency of laser cutting machines, producing more accurate parts at a faster rate. There are three different ways that lasers can be used to process metal workpieces: by flame or oxygen, sublimation, or fusion cutting. Each one of these achieves different results but always guarantees maximum accuracy.


Flame or Oxygen

Conventional laser cutters use oxygen as its cutting gas, accelerating the workpiece's ignition temperature at the target area. A high-intensity light is concentrated onto a single point at extreme high heats. This point is adjustable in size as well. As the light, or laser, moves, it cuts shapes out of the workpiece. This method is able to achieve a clean cut without any contamination especially on steel plates less than 30 millimeters thick.



This process is common with laser cutting services that frequently process non-metallic materials. For example, sublimation works well with wood, plastic, and foam workpieces because it accounts for the material's vaporization point and avoids oxidation. It is a stark contrast to the flame or oxygen cutting process because oxidation creates an undesirable effect on non-metallic workpieces.



A variation of sublimated laser cutting, this method also avoids oxidization by shielding the non-metallic workpiece material with nitrogen. However, machines capable of fusion cutting can pierce through metallic and ceramic products as well. In turn, it is able to achieve a clean and uncontaminated cut void of any type of undesirable oxidation.
