Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The [laser optics] and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials.
This CO2 laser cutting machine is distinguishing from the flatbed engraving and cutting machine. It is an affordable CO2 laser engraver & cutter with different working area, which could meet the different needs of users. And equiped with ultra high strength industrial steel plate, making the machine runs smoothly and the cnc co2 laser cutting machine have a longer service life. In addition, adopting the imported components, ensuring the co2 laser engrever engraving with a good quality.
it can help you engrave or cut a wide variety of materials like acrylic, density board, plastic, acrylic acid, rubber, mdf, wood, leather, bamboo, paper, marble, glass, crystal etc. This CO2 laser cutter & CO2 laser engraver has been widely used in advertising industry, handicraft production, decoration, rubber plate furniture, crafts and other industries
Advantages of laser cutting over mechanical cutting include easier workholding and reduced contamination of workpiece (since there is no cutting edge which can become contaminated by the material or contaminate the material). Precision may be better, since the laser beam does not wear during the process. There is also a reduced chance of warping the material that is being cut, as laser systems have a small heat-affected zone. Some materials are also very difficult or impossible to cut by more traditional means.
