Laser Cutting Services
What Materials Can Laser Cutting Machines Process?
Laser cutting’s versatility is one of its most compelling features. This technology isn’t just limited to traditional metals like steel or aluminium; it extends to a variety of materials, some of the laser cutting services available in the UK include:
- Flatbed Laser cutting of metals and composites.
- 5 axis Laser cutting of pressed components, extrusions, tube and spinnings.
- Laser cutting goes hand in hand with other services such as pressbraking and powder coating.
How Does Laser Cutting Compare to Other Cutting Technologies?
When it comes to efficiency and accuracy, laser cutting stands out. Traditional methods like mechanical cutting or water jet cutting have their merits, but laser cutting edges ahead due to:
- Higher Efficiency: Laser cutters are faster, reducing production time.
- Less Energy Consumption: This translates to lower operational costs which are passed on to customers.
- Exceptional Accuracy: Essential for precision applications in industries like electronics and aerospace. At GF Laser our standard tolerance available is +/- 0.25mm.
By choosing laser cutting, you’re opting for a method that not only saves time and money but also delivers unparalleled precision.
Are There Any Concerns About Heat Damage with Laser Cutting?
One common concern with laser cutting is potential heat damage. However, with advancements in technology and skilled operation, laser cutting usually results in:
- Minimal Heat Impact: Proper settings ensure the heat is focused and does not spread, preserving the integrity of the material.
- High-Quality Edges: The precision of laser cutting means cleaner cuts and smoother edges, reducing the need for additional finishing.
Working with experienced professionals in laser cutting services, like GF Laser, guarantees that your materials are in safe hands.
