Laser cutting – effective, delicate and gentle on the material
Laser cutting has evolved into a proven process in the industry in recent years. Whether metal, glass or other materials: High-performance lasers can cut the most delicate structures and solids while being as gentle on the material as possible.
The process generally uses CO2 lasers which have been established in the industrial sector for a long time and are economically viable even for smaller product runs. They are often integrated into so-called multifunctional work stations.
These can cut as well as punch, weld, fold, drill and polish – in sequential work steps, monitored by a computer.
In some areas laser cutting is not ideal, as it leaves scorch marks, for example on metals, particularly on stainless steel. That is why stainless steel is usually cut with abrasive waterjet cutting.
