The specific advantages of metal laser cutters -Ivy

The specific advantages of metal laser cutters are as follows:

Not affect by the shape of the work piece:

laser processing is flexible.  Can process any graphics, can cut pipes and other shape.

The cutting surface is smooth: the cutting surface has no burrs.

Good cutting quality:

no contact cutting. The edge is less affect by heat, there is basically no thermal deformation of the work piece.

Improve the speed of new product development:

when import the design, laser processing can  perform immediately.

High precision:

positioning accuracy 0.02mm, repeat positioning accuracy 0.03 mm.

Narrow slit:

The laser beam is focus into a small spot, so that the focal point reaches a very high power density. And the material is quickly heat to a vaporization level to evaporate to form a hole.  As the beam moves relatively linearly with the material, the holes into slits of narrow width. The slit width is generally 0.10 to 0.20 mm.

Do not damage the work piece:

the laser cutting head will not contact the surface of the material to ensure that the work piece is not scratch.

Material saving:

Computer programming can cut the entire board material into different shapes to maximize the utilization of materials.

Not affect by the hardness of the material to be cut:

the laser can process steel plates, stainless steel, aluminum alloy plates, hard alloys, etc., regardless of the hardness, can be cut without deformation.

Saving mold investment:

laser processing does not require mold. No mold consumption. No need to repair the mold, saving time to replace the mold. Thereby saving processing costs and reducing production costs, especially suitable for processing large products. After understanding the advantages of metal laser cutters and common tools for sheet metal cutting.
