Here is a guide on the different types of laser cutting methods available today. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your Metal-Tronics consultant.
The Different Methods of Laser Cutting:
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser - In this method, the laser beam cuts through the material with a mixture of gases (like CO2) which are stimulated electrically. This method is suitable for a wide range of materials.
Neodymium Laser - In this method, the laser beam is generated from neodymium crystals. Compared to the CO2 laser, the laser beam has a lower wavelength. This method offers higher intensity which makes it the perfect method for cutting through thick metals.
Fiber Laser - This is a popular process used for labelling plastic and metal surfaces with a fiber laser that provides more accurate and precise results. In this method, fiberglass is used to amplify each seed laser several times to produce a smaller wavelength with high intensity.
