What Does Laser Cutting
Mean and How Does it Works?
Laser cutting is primarily a thermal process that uses a concentrated laser beam to melt material in a localized area. The molten material is ejected with a co-axial gas jet and a kerf is formed. A continuous cut is produced by moving, under CNC control, the laser beam or workpiece. Laser cutting comes in three major varieties: fusion cutting, flame cutting, and remote cutting.
|High quality cut - no finishing|
|Ultra flexible - simple or complex parts|
|Non contact - no surface blemishing|
|Quick set up - small batches|
|Low heat input - small HAZ, low distortion|
|Lends itself to nearly all materials|
