Today we’ll be discussing laser cutting and how lasers improve quality, shorten lead times, and lower costs when processing sheet metal.
Benefits of Laser Cutting
Lasers have the unique ability to produce highly cosmetic parts, without the need for secondary processing. The material remains stationary throughout the laser cutting process, and the laser head never contacts the material. This provides the ideal condition for flat blank processing without damaging the material.
Whether you’re looking for scratch-free surfaces, or high edge quality, laser cutting provides the solution to your cosmetic part requirements.
Lasers also have the ability to precisely cut intricate or complicated shapes, process a variety of material types and thicknesses, and quickly change between materials with little or no downtime. This shortens manufacturing time and makes lasers the perfect solution for high mix, low volume manufacturing.
Lasers can also process sheets up to 5×10 feet, making them an effective tool for higher quantity production orders as well. Lasers might be the best solution for your projects. The benefits of shorter setup times, quick changeovers, processing of complicated shapes without expensive tooling, and precise cosmetic cutting without secondary processing offers you a cost-effective option for processing.
