Compared to traditional kinds of cutting (press cutting, microplasma arc cutting, acetylene-oxygen cutting and mechanical treatment), laser cutting offers a number of advantages: high cutting speed, hairline cut, square edges of the cut, minimal area of heat impact.
A focused laser beam of controlled output is an ideal cutting tool that ensures high-quality clean cuts with a wide range of materials.
Laser cutting favourably differs from traditional kinds of cutting (punching, microplasma arc cutting, acetylene-oxygen cutting and mechanical treatment) in terms of higher precision of order fulfilment, lesser amount of scrap, lesser cut tolerance. Ability to cope with tight deadlines and handle even small batches makes laser cutting particularly important.
- laser cutting does not make any mechanical impact on the workpiece being treated;
- a focused laser emission allows to cut and engrave virtually any material, regardless of its thermophysical properties;
- laser beam positioning accuracy amounts to 0.08 mm, due to which high precision in geometric relationship of pattern elements is achieved;
- laser cutting can be applied with easily deformable and pliable details;
- having a diameter of about 0.2 mm, the laser beam enables to make holes of 0.5 mm in diameter;
- the high power of laser emission ensures high productivity in the process of laser cutting;
- using the possibilities that laser cutting provides, one can contour cut any sheet material to the most complex outline.
Laser cutting and plexiglas engraving provides a smooth and transparent cut. The cut does not require subsequent polishing. The plexiglas workpiece can be up to 20 mm thick.
Laser cutting of solid wood gives an even, smooth, dark cut and a smell of burnt timber, thick yet not charred. The thickness of a wooden workpiece can reach 16 mm.
Laser cutting of paper results in an even, smooth, somewhat yellowish cut. Every paper sheet is cut individually, otherwise the space between the sheets accumulates products of combustion which soil the paper.
Laser cutting of leather gives a slightly charred, dark edge with a pronounced smell of burnt meal. The workable thickness of leather is 12 mm.
Laser cutting of textile along the desired outline. When cutting polyamide, polyester and other synthetic fabric, line of the cut is seared so it does not come apart.
