Laser Cutting 101 

Laser cutting is an absolutely essential part of any metal fabrication project. It is important to choose the right cutting technique that will produce a quality product, one that will be durable and effective in the long run. A laser cutting machine is a device that uses a high precision laser to cut through materials like steel, aluminum, brass, and copper. Laser cutting offers a superior option compared to conventional manual or mechanical methods of cutting. Below are some of the benefits of using a laser machine.

  • Accuracy:  Laser machines are accurate and successfully cut through metal plates of varying material and produce excellent cut quality. The laser never makes physical contact with the metal, hence little or no wear is mitted on the equipment. Lasers are more precise when it comes to cutting, compared to more traditional means. Furthermore, the heat-affected zone is minimized, thus the possibility of the material warping is greatly reduced.
  • Tolerance:  Laser cutting is performed by specialized machinery, able to cut very small and delicate designs that are of high quality which require little to no finishing work. This is due to the fact that the laser has a very small kerfs width and small heat affect zone, which enables the laser beam to cut small holes and complex shapes. A high pressure gas blows away any debris, giving rise to neatly finished surface cuts.
  • Safety: Laser cutting is a safe process since most laser machines are fully enclosed to prevent accidents. Laser technology is often combined with CNC, meaning that a trained operator can program the machinery for the task at hand.
