Understanding the Laser Cutting Services Available from Baseline

December 27, 2017

Many fabrication shops still use traditional cutting methods, such as lathing and sawing. With advanced technology, laser cutting now stands at the forefront of metal fabrication, because laser cutting services offer increased speed, accuracy, and are much safer to operate thanks to CNC machining. The technique can cut complex shapes, regardless of the necessary size – no matter how small. With the laser cutting services, fabricators can offer high-quality finishes for even the most demanding of projects.



Baseline laser cutting services can be performed through a number of techniques:



  • Vaporization: The vaporization technique is a fairly straightforward one – extreme heat is focused through a laser beam that essentially boils its way through the material. This process is less effective for creating shaped cuts, and is commonly used on woods and similar materials that cannot be simply melted through.
  • Thermal Stress: Thermal stress techniques are commonly used on brittle materials, such as glass. The rigidity of the material means that a highly focused beam of heat will cause cracks to form in the surface of the piece, which can then be guided by the movement of the beam. With computer software, this is an incredibly precise process.
  • Reactive (Flame): This technique is a highly versatile one, thanks to its remarkable simplicity – a laser beam is used to transfer incredible heat to a material in a controlled form. Flame cutting is highly energy-efficient for the amount of power it brings to the process, and can be used in applications that require very thick cuts on highly durable materials.


Knowing which techniques are well-suited for your application is vital to the success of your project.
