Laser Cutting Applications

Laser cutting is now one of the most widely used manufacturing processes in the world. Finding a home in industries such as the aerospace, automotive, electronics, semiconductor and medical sectors, it’s clear that it offers a huge range of benefits and uses.


The laser cutting of metal

One of the most important uses for laser cutting is to cut metal. Laser cutting can be used on a huge number of different metals, including steel, copper, nickel,  and aluminium. Regardless of the industry or the work that is conducted in that industry, it’s more than likely that metal will play a part in some way.

Whatever the thickness of the metals, laser cutting can be used to deliver the same clean cuts and smooth finishes. You’ll commonly see laser cutting being used to cut metal for components and structural shapes, such as for the body of a car or the case of a mobile phone.

A laser cutting machine is a laser beam emitted from a laser that is focused by a light path system into a laser beam of high power density. The laser beam is irradiated onto the surface of the workpiece to bring the workpiece to a melting point or boiling point, while the high-pressure gas coaxial with the beam blows away the molten or vaporized metal. The following small series introduces the precautions when purchasing a laser cutting machine:


       1. First, we must figure out the production range, processing materials and thickness of the cutting of the enterprise, so as to determine the type, format and quantity of the equipment to be purchased, and make a simple preparation for the later procurement work. Laser cutting machine applications include mobile phones, computers, sheet metal processing, metal processing, electronics, printing, packaging, leather, clothing, industrial fabrics, advertising, crafts, furniture, decoration, medical equipment and many other industries. The average company will be equipped with a variety of formats for customers to choose from, which can be customized.


       2. Professionals can carry out on-site simulation to solve or provide solutions, and can also take their own materials to the factory for proofing.

       1) The cutting seam is fine: the slit of the laser cutting is generally 0.10mm-0.20mm;

       2) The cutting surface is smooth: the fiber laser cutting machine has the least or no burrs, the cutting surface is very smooth and the speed is also fast.

       3) Look at the deformation of the material: the deformation of the material is very small.

       4) Power size: For example, most of the factories are cutting metal sheets under  6mm, there is no need to buy high-power laser cutting machine, 500-1500W fiber laser cutting machine can meet the production demand, if the production volume is large, worry about 500W efficiency Not as good as a high-power laser cutting machine, the best choice is to buy two or more small and medium-power laser cutting machines, which will help manufacturers in terms of cost control and efficiency.

       5) The core of laser cutting: laser and laser head, is imported or domestic, imported lasers generally use  IPG, domestically produced is Maxphotnics, at the same time, laser other accessories for cutting should also pay attention to, such as whether the motor is imported servo motor, guide rail, bed, etc., because they affect the cutting precision of the machine to some extent. One thing that needs special attention is the cooling system of the laser cutting machine - the cooling cabinet. Many companies use the household air conditioner to cool directly. The effect is actually clear to everyone. It is very bad. The best way is to use industrial air conditioners. In order to achieve the best results.
