State-of-the-Art Laser Cutting Services
August 20, 2020

If you are looking for state-of-the-art laser cutting services in Toronto, then there are two essential things you should know before you start looking -- these are job shop laser cutting as well as cutting speeds. 

Laser cutting in job shops

Since the first laser cutting technology was developed as an industrial fabrication process back in the ‘70s, laser cutter manufacturers have continuously improved and developed the power of the laser cutters. As the laser cutting services in Toronto requires a high quality beam that has to be focused down to a very small spot, the power consumed for this cutting purpose has been lagging behind the maximum powers available. Plus the fact that the beam focus has to be accompanied with symmetric energy density which is needed if the laser has to cut equally well in all directions.

Laser cutting services in Toronto that have been using modern laser cutters usually utilise powers ranging from 3.5kW - 5.5kW which are highly capable of very high production rates. From a job shop point of view, the two significant parameters to be taken into account are the material maximum thickness and the cutting speed. 

 

Cutting speeds 

When it comes to cutting speeds, manufacturers have realised two key points : First, it is the cycle time for the workpiece that is also more important and not just the linear maximum cutting speed. Second, it is much better to reduce the power of a multi-kW laser machine when cutting thinner materials. 

Nowadays, with great technological advancement, manufacturers of laser cutters have focused on acceleration and intercut movement speeds to optimise production. Improvements in these areas have enabled the laser cutting speed just a little part of a complicated calculation to determine component cycle times. Ultimately, the most accurate way to compare the two machines used in laser cutting services is to perform trials on their actual components.
