Stainless steel has long been a popular choice of metal due to it’s ability to resist corrosion and withstand both hot and cold temperatures. These characteristics have led to it being used throughout a number of different industries; for example it’s great strength makes it a good option for both the construction and industrial sectors.

The Benefits of Laser Cutting Stainless Steel

There are a number of benefits to laser cutting stainless steel which has led to its continuous growth as a popular metalwork method; these benefits are vast.

  • Laser cutting is an effective way of cutting stainless steel accurately. With stainless steel being used for so many different uses, it is important that it can be accurately cut to strict measurements and shapes.
  • As laser cutting of stainless steel is such an accurate technique, it allows for precision work to be carried out, such as adding small details onto the material.
  • The energy required to cut stainless steel with the laser cutting technique is a lot less than other methods; the heat affected zones are minimised and this prevents chemical change through heat.
  • As each project is specifically programmed it is easy to repeat the same job twice and multiple pieces can be created to be identical; this saves on time for those cutting the stainless steel.

There are many more benefits to using laser cutting of stainless steel but from studying those given above, it is easy to see why it is such a valuable method.
