Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

The most common laser application in the industry is high powered cutting. This allows highly precise cutting of thin pieces of material.

The cut quality is so high that the pieces can be used directly, or sent for further processing without the need for post-cut finishing. Laser cutting is extensively used, especially by mechanical engineering companies that serve the automotive industry as well as in the manufacturing of household equipment, such as dishwashers, washing machines etc.

Most industrial lasers require ‘lasing gas’ to generate the laser light.  The purity of lasing gas must be extremely high to avoid contamination of laser components and resultant impaired laser performance.  These gases are usually separate supplies of laser grade CO2, Helium and Nitrogen or a premixed combination of these.

Moisture and hydrocarbons are particularly detrimental to the performance of CO2 lasers.

The gases used in the laser cutting process, depend on the material being cut;
