The Benefits of Laser Cutting
Laser cutting offers many benefits over other forms of metal cutting like mechanical cutting methods or plasma cutting.
Laser Cutting Offers Superior Accuracy
The focused cutting beam is generally less than 0.35mm in diameter delivering possible kerf widths as small as 0.1mm. Because the system is computer motion controlled, it eliminates human error from the cutting process, allowing for repeatability precision in the range of 0.05mm.
Laser Cutting Delivers Higher Quality Results
Laser cutting results in extremely smooth, burr-free edges that require little to no finishing. While the quality of the cut will depend on the type and thickness of the metal, laser cutting delivers a far superior cut quality compared with other cutting methods. Since the work is done using a laser cutting tool, there is no work edge to wear down during the cutting process. This also helps to deliver the most precise cut. The cutting beam has a very small heat-affected zone, which means the material being cut isn’t damaged, warped or blemished.
Laser Cutting Provides Versatility For Your Projects
Laser cutting is quick to program and reset, making it great for one-off pieces or prototypes. Because the process is fast and efficient, it is also appropriate for medium-size production runs. Since laser cutting is fast and extremely precise, it is great for creating delicate or complex shapes and patterns or fabricating large manufacturing components.
Laser cutting works on a wide range of metals include stainless steel, aluminium, specialist steels, brass, lead, titanium, copper and more.
Laser Cutting Minimises Waste to Protect the Environment
One of the biggest environmental impacts a business has is in the waste they produce. Laser cutting creates minimal waste when compared with other metal cutting methods, this is because of the increased use of technology in the cutting process. Before the laser even makes a cut, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software is used to assist in the design and nesting process. This software automatically aims to map out the nest option with the least material wastage. Through this, accompanied by the high precision of laser cutting meaning the metal is cut correctly the first time, Laser Cutting offers minimal waste, helping protect the environment.
