1. Laser Cutting In House
By using laser cutting technology, we can save a lot of time, greatly reduce material waste, and cut to any shape without any other tools, which gives us the ability to produce small quantities, and in many cases, we are faced with the need to process more small quantities.
2. What is Laser Cutting ?
Laser cutting is the use of a focused high power density laser beam to irradiate the workpiece, so that the irradiated material quickly melts, at the same time, it produces a airflow to blow away the molt material, by this way, the workpiece is divide.
Laser cutting is cutting by thermal power. In laser fusion cutting, the metal material is melted by laser heating, and the nozzle blows non-oxidizing gases (Ar, He, N, etc.), relying on the strong pressure of the gas to expel the liquid metal and form the cut. The energy required is only 1/10 of vapor cutting.
3. Why Laser Cutting?
Laser melting cutting is mainly used for cutting some materials that are not easily oxidized or reactive metals, such as stainless steel, titanium, aluminum and its alloys.
We use laser to cut a large amount of raw materials, laser cutting has been an inseparable processing method nowadays.
After cutting the blanks with the laser, we can move it to the next procedure quickly and inexpensively with our “Integrated Processing” capability and other processes.
4. Advantages of Laser Cutting
Laser cutting has the following advantages:
1) Non contact
Non contact machining: the laser does not exert mechanical stress on the workpiece, nor dose it wear like other tools.
2) High precision
Exquisite contours and shapes can be produced with high precision by using
laser. Local heating | the heat affected area is very small, and the thermal
stress in other parts of the workpiece is very small or even nonexistent.
Multiple shapes and contours can be processed with one tool. Different
processing can be realized on a laser cutting machine. Sheet metal parts can
be punched while being cut.
4) Economy and quality
Economy and quality are the basis for considering whether to use laser
processing. The advantages of laser processing must be balanced with the high
investment cost: a laser processing equipment and supporting system are much
more expensive than conventional machines.
While there’re also disadvantages of Laser Cutting as following:
1) Higher speed
The speed of laser processing is usually faster than that of conventional
methods. Higher productivity will offset higher investment costs.
2) Higher quality
The quality of laser processing is usually higher than that of conventional
