What is laser cutting/profiling
Lasers are used for many purposes. They are used is for cutting metals and plastic plates. The laser cutting process is highly accurate, yields excellent cut quality, has a very small cutting width and small heat affect zone this makes it possible to cut very intricate shapes and small holes.
How it works
The laser beam is a column of very high intensity light, that is focused onto the plate. The focused laser beam goes through the bore of a nozzle right before it hits the plate. The beam has to be precisely focused so that the shape of the focus spot and the density of the energy in that spot are perfectly round and consistent and centered in the nozzle. The high power density results in rapid heating, melting and partial or complete vaporizing of the material. On a CNC laser cutter, the laser cutting head is moved over the plate in the shape of the desired part, thus cutting the part out of the plate.
Our laser cutting and profiling equipment features two of the most advanced computer controlled two dimensional flat bed machines and we also have the capability to profile larger and thicker materials as required:
* One Co2 80 watt laser profiling machine with a bed size of 1300 x 900mm capable of cutting 10mm acrylic.
* One 1.5 Kw fibre laser metal profiling machine with a bed size of 1300 x 900mm capable of cutting 3mm stainless steel.
