Laser cutting and engraving offer many advantages and allow high productivity: high speed, very precise work, little or no material deformation, no tooling required, no direct contact with the material, process safety and automation ...
The use of laser cutting is versatile in that it is suitable for many types of materials: aluminium, metal (steel, stainless steel), wood, plastics, paper, fabrics, etc. Whatever the size of the parts required.
Laser technology has many applications in the industrial sector (aeronautics, transport, furniture, etc.) but also in decoration, architecture, advertising, art, etc.
How it works
CNC laser cutting is very different from THP waterjet cutting. A high-powered laser beam heats the surface of the material to be cut until it melts or evaporates. Cutting is complete when the laser beam has completely penetrated the material to be cut. A process gas can be used for some applications.
This high-tech process can be assisted by numerical control (using dedicated software). An industrial CNC laser cutting tool allows for better results in terms of both the precision of the finish and the speed of production of the parts to be cut.
Cutting many types of materials can be possible thanks to the use of fibre laser technology. A CNC laser cutting machine can process any type of object regardless of its format and the size of the cut (which can be less than a millimetre).
There is no need for maintenance of the laser beam and no risk of wear, which reduces the cost of consumables. As a cutter as well as an engraver, this laser cutting process provides many services to industry. The CNC laser machines in the MECANUMERIC range are a source of complete satisfaction for customers thanks to their manufacturing quality and ease of use.
The use of the CNC laser cutting process is used in the manufacture of numerous objects for various applications such as:
- Aeronautics for laser cutting of special steel parts
- Land transport for the manufacture of parts for tramways, metros, electric cars, etc.
- SIGN, PLV and communication for the cutting of letters for signs
- Furniture for engraving granite
- Architecture for cutting decorative friezes
- Luxury and crafts for engraving leather and wood
