Fiber laser cutting
We provide cutting of sheet metal with fiber lasers.
We provide cutting of sheet metal with fiber lasers. Our cnc machines process metal sheets made of copper, aluminum or steel.
Fiber lasers feature state-of-the-art solutions (including automation, continuous process control systems and more), which contribute to high quality and repeatability. A laser light beam is used for cutting, focused by suitable optics on the material being processed. The energy of the laser beam (which may be continuous or pulsed) melts the material within the kerf, while the molten metal is blown away by the gas. Thus, with a sufficient laser output power, any copper or aluminium sheet can be melted and then cut. The design of a fiber laser facilitates the cutting of even the most complex geometries with superior quality along the cut edges.
A major advantage of fiber laser cutting technology is that it allows to quickly manufacture even the most complex and precise cuts, as well as to reduce the cutting costs compared to traditional methods. This process also ensures repeatability, resulting in identical component pieces, which is extremely important in high and low-volume production.
For thicker materials, we provide and use water jet cutting. However, we use this process less often these days, as the increasing power of the available laser cutting machines reduces the processing duration several times.
Benefits of cutting copper and aluminium with fiber lasers:
- Full repeatability of the cutting process.
- Cutting of multiple, even extremely complex shapes in a very short run time.
- Highest quality of cut edges.
- Lower cutting process costs compared to traditional cutting methods.
- The processing run time is reduced to the bare minimum.
