Laser cutting uses a high-power laser which is directed through optics and computer numerical control (CNC) to direct the beam or material. Typically, the process uses a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern that is to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam burns, melts, vaporises or is blown away by a jet of gas to leave a high-quality surface finished edge.
One nice thing about laser cutting is that it can be used on a wide range of different types of materials. And, regardless of what type of material is being cut, the results are always consistent.
Also, if you use different types of materials or pieces made up of a combination, laser cutting is convenient and efficient because you can utilize just one type of cutting for all of your needs.
Often, clients require that their products be cut precisely or that they achieve exact measurements or careful attention to detail. Fortunately, laser cutting can provide all of those things. If having a perfectly cut piece of material is the only option for you, then you'll definitely want to go with laser cutting.
With laser cutting being so precise, you might think it would take a long time to complete. Surprisingly, however, the opposite is true. Laser cutting is one of the fastest options since the cutting tool does most of the work. Because laser cutting is such a quick process, it's a great solution when you need something done quickly.
