Laser cutting technology uses a focused high-power laser beam to melt or vaporize the material in a small area to create the desired shape or pattern on a workpiece. This non-contact, thermal-based process can produce intricate patterns with narrow kerfs.
Plasma cutting offers many of the same benefits as laser cutting but it can also cut through thicker material at a faster rate and has lower energy consumption. Plasma can cut through electrically conductive materials (including steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper) with an accelerated hot plasma jet that can reach 20,000°C or above. Plasma cutting can produce an edge as smooth as laser cutting, but it also creates a slight bevel (4 degrees to 5 degrees) in the cut face. cutting edge laser
