Laser cutting is a popular technology used in many industries to cut and shape a variety of materials, such as metal, wood, plastic, fabric, and more. There are several reasons why laser cutting is preferred over other cutting methods:
- Precision: Laser cutting produces very precise cuts with high accuracy, resulting in clean edges and intricate shapes. Although not as accurate as CNC Machining the laser beam can be controlled with great precision, allowing for very intricate and complex designs.
- Speed: Laser cutting is a fast and efficient method of cutting, as it can cut through material quickly and easily, without the need for additional tools or equipment.
- Versatility: Laser cutting can be used on a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, wood, fabric, and more. It can also cut through materials of varying thicknesses. Please note though at GF Laser we only provide a metal laser cutting service.
- Efficiency: Laser cutting is a highly efficient process that can produce large quantities of identical parts quickly and consistently. The Fiber lasers in use by GF Laser also use nearly 50% less electricity then the the older CO2 laser cutting machines.
- Cost-effective: Laser cutting can be a cost-effective option for many applications, as it can reduce the need for additional tooling and labour costs. However, should your project be more suited to a fully tooled solution we can offer this via our sister company Moseley Brothers.
Overall, laser cutting is a reliable, precise, and versatile cutting technology that can be used in a variety of applications across many industries.
