Advantages of Laser Cutting Services
There are many advantages of using laser cutting services but not all are well known. Are traditional cutting techniques inferior to laser cutting? Let’s take a look at a few advantages of laser cutting in this list we have put together for your convenience.
Precision Cuts and High Accuracy
CW Metals Inc. is a laser metal cutting specialist in New York. During laser cutting, extreme precision is achieved through the use of a powerful but very small focused beam of laser light. The material is cut by the laser evaporating and melting the material it touches. This means that very high levels of precision and accuracy are achieved through this process.
Can Handle Jobs of Varying Complexity
Laser cutting can handle very complex projects as it cuts with unmatched accuracy and excellent tolerance levels. The laser edge causes almost no warping or distortion to the cutting area meaning that a very narrow section of material can be cut. You can easily and quickly cut out highly-complex geometries when using a laser.
Causes No Damage Or Warping – Even to Thin Materials
Some people erroneously believe that a lot of warping and distortion is caused by the high heat from the laser. The truth is that no issue is created with the tolerance of the part or component at all, due to the small Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) produced by the laser.
Extreme Versatility in Cutting
The versatility of laser metal cutting is a major benefit and makes choosing to rather opt for a laser cut service, even easier. Lasers can do much more than cut through materials. The laser can be used to drill, mark, engrave, and a lot more. This means laser cutting services can be used for a lot more than you can think of.
