About Laser Cutting

Laser cutting produces part shapes by cutting sheet material using an intense laser beam.  This cutting method uses a beam of high-density light energy focused through a tiny hole in a nozzle. When this beam strikes the surface of the work piece, the material of the work piece is vaporized.

Laser Advantages 

The process offers low cost for prototype and short runs since no physical tooling is needed. Heat distortion is minimal and typically limited to about 10% of material thickness. Cut parts generally remain flat. Lasers leave minimal burrs.

Shapes 

Cutting with a laser can produce almost any 2D shape including cutouts for parts such as enclosures, cams, brackets, decorative items, holders, mechanisms, etc.

Materials

Several materials are applicable. Aluminum can be laser cut but requires a higher power more expensive laser. Stainless steel, plain steel and spring steel are highly suitable. Metals such as copper alloys are difficult due to their ability to reflect the laser light and absorb heat. Many plastics are problematic due to toxic fumes.
