Laser cutting, a non-contact cutting procedure.
Laser cutting is a separation process with which metallic and non-metallic materials of different thicknesses can be cut. It is based on a laser beam that is guided, shaped and focused. When it strikes the part, the material heats up so much that it is melted or evaporated. All the laser power is concentrated in a point whose diameter is usually less than half a millimeter. If more heat is concentrated at this point than can be removed by heat conduction, the laser beam passes through the material completely, thus beginning the cutting process.
Laser cutting advantages
Wide range of materials
All common industrial machining materials (from steel, aluminum, stainless steel or metal sheets to non-metallic materials such as plastics, glass, wood or ceramics) can be laser cut safely and with high quality. With this technology you can cut a wide range of thicknesses, from 0.5 up to 30 millimeters. This wide spectrum of materials makes the laser the best cutting tool for multiple applications with metallic and non-metallic materials.
The concentrated laser beam heats the material only locally, the rest of the part only receives minimal or no thermal load. In this way, the width of the cutting groove hardly exceeds the beam diameter and even complex and intricate contours can be cut smoothly and without burrs. In most cases, costly finish machining is no longer necessary. Due to its flexibility, this cutting procedure is used especially when batch sizes are small, when variants abound, and for prototyping.
High quality cutting edges with ultrashort pulsations.
Ultrashort pulse lasers evaporate almost any material so quickly that no thermal influence is observed. Thus, high-quality cutting edges are generated without the appearance of casting. Therefore, lasers are especially suitable for the manufacture of the most intricate metallic products such as “stents” in medical technology. In the display industry, ultrashort pulse lasers cut chemically hardened glass.
