What is a laser cutter?

laser cutting machine working principle

laser cutting technology is a kind of thermal cutting, when working, the focused high density laser beam which is emitted by laser generator is used to irradiate the work piece, the material at the irradiated place is rapidly melted, vaporized or reaches the ignition point. At the same time, the molten material is blown away by high-speed coaxial airflow with the beam, the laser beam moves by the numerical control mechanical system to cut in accordance with the programs.

types of laser cutters

Currently, several kinds of laser cutting equipment are available for laser processing and manufacturing, including CO2 laser, YAG laser and fiber laser. Among them, high-power CO2 lasers and YAG lasers are widely used in precision cutting; fiber lasers with fiber-based substrates, on the other hand, have obvious advantages in reducing thresholds, oscillating wavelength range and wavelength tunability, and thus have become emerging technologies in precision laser cutting.

cutting thickness of the laser cutter?

At present, the thickness of the fiber laser cutting system generally does not exceed 25mm. Compared with other cutting methods, it has obvious advantages for cutting materials with precise dimensions below 20mm.

laser cutting machine applications

Laser cutter machine is widely used in automobile manufacturing, kitchenware industry, sheet metal processing, advertising industry, machinery manufacturing, etc. Case cabinet, elevator manufacturing, fitness equipment and other industries.

Laser cutting machine is characterized of wide cutting range, high cutting speed, narrow cutting slit, excellent cutting quality, small heat affected zone, etc, thus is widely used in various fiels, including automobile manufacturing, kitchenware industry, sheet metal processing, advertising industry, machinery manufacturing, chassis cabinets, elevator manufacturing, fitness equipment, etc.
