Fibre-optic laser cutting is an innovative service and technique increasingly used nowadays by companies to achieve a precise cut and a high-quality result.
The laser cutting technique involves the use of a beam of radiation cast onto the sheet to be cut: this is filtered by a lens that causes the surface to overheat and leads therefore to fusion. At the same time, a flow of gas from the base of the lens is used, which, through a fluodynamic thrust, generates the actual cutting of the surface depending on the desired incision.
2D, 3D LASER CUTTING AND MORE
There are different types of laser cutting services Chimimetal can provide through its renowned know how :
- inert gas
- CO2 laser cutting
- assisted oxygen
- 2D laser cutting
- 3D laser cutting
CO2 LASER CUTTING SERVICE FOR EXTREME PRECISION
In CO 2 laser cutting, a gas made up of carbon dioxide is used which is moved by electric thrust, generating a wavelength of 10 μm. This type of laser cutting has an excellent yield especially on high-thickness metal surfaces.
THE BENEFITS OF LASER CUTTING
The use of a fibre optic laser cutting service has significant advantages:
- Extreme precision in cutting that ensures a quality result
- Installation costs, making it an ideal technique for developing prototypes
- Possibility of treating metals on which photo-engraving cannot be done
- Possibility of cutting thick materials, up to 3 mm for steel and 2 mm for brass.
LASER CUTTING MACHINES
The machines which perform the laser cutting incision technique are made up of a support structure which varies depending on the work to be performed and the type of metal to be engraved, of an oscillator (the cutting head) placed on the axes or on an automated arm, of a screen to protect operators from laser beams and of a numerical processing control.
SUITABLE MATERIALS FOR LASER CUTTING
The most suitable materials for the laser cutting services and technique are:
- Tithanium (Beta-Alfa)
- Nickel, copper and iron-based alloys
- Combined Cu/Al laminates
- Super alloys (Inconel 600)
- Pre-galvanised materials
