Laser Cutting Equipment Features
December 04, 2019

Laser cutting and metal fabrication professionals will be able to assess your needs and come up with a suitable solution for completing your fabrication project. Whether it’s selecting the type of metal that needs to be cut, or figuring out what fabrication processes are necessary to getting the job done – your go-to metal fabrication shop should be able to provide you with the quality results you need.

Metal fabrication shops are provided with the necessary equipment and capabilities to ensure projects are completed as effectively as possible.

 

Laser cutting machines are essential to the fabrication process, as they offer a number of features which allow for more flexibility when it comes to project outcomes.

 

In today’s blog we’ll discuss a few laser cutting equipment features we rely on.

 

Laser Power

 

Laser power refers to the wattage of the laser machine, which can effectively increase of decrease the cutting duration time. The higher the laser power, the more powerful the laser beam will be. Generally, the more powerful the laser beam – the costlier the laser cutting machine typically is. At the same time, the more powerful the laser cutting machine is, the more flexible it is to complete projects that require a higher degree of precision or power.

 

Beam Mode

 

The beam mode allows the operator of the laser cutting machine to select beam intensity. Beam intensity functions by distributing the beam’s power across the cross-sectional area where the work piece is placed.

 

Focus

 

As its name suggests, the focus of the laser cutting machine is the point at which the diameter of the beam is at its smallest point. Focusing the laser beam usually involved the focusing lens, which is used to ensure the beam focus is as precise as possible. The focus is the focal point at which the laser beam comes into contact with the work piece, and where the cutting process takes place.

 

Wave Length

 

The wave length plays an important role in determining the radiation absorption rate of the work piece material that needs to be cut through. Your typical CO2 laser relies on a single infrared wavelength that is invisible to the human eye. This is what allows the work piece material to be heated, melted, and vaporized as needed in order to achieve the desired cuts.
