High Quality, No Contact Metal Cutting With Flat Laser Technology
Flat Laser Cutting: A Foundational Skill in Metal Fabrication
Flat laser cutting is a process that has revolutionized the metal fabrication industry. With its high accuracy and ease of repeatability, it has made it easier and cheaper to complete projects. In this post, we will discuss the basics of laser cutting and its advantages within metal fabrication.
At its core, laser cutting is a thermal process where a focused laser beam melts material in a localized area. The laser beam is moved through CNC processes. There are two mainstream types of laser cutting which are flat laser and tube laser cutting.
Flat laser cutting has many advantages. Among them:
No Contact: As its name suggests, no contact laser cutting doesn’t require the manipulation of materials with people. Many of the processes are secured and carried out through automation. This minimizes the rate of error since a machine is controlling the majority of processes.
Repeatability: Laser cutting is a boon to high-volume orders since it is set up to produce consistent results. The cutting directions are saved, which means there is little setup or guesswork between orders.
Streamlining: Laser cutting does not require finishing. By virtually skipping a step, project turnaround times are drastically shortened, which means clients may receive their orders relatively quickly.
