you can choose from a range of folding and bending services suitable for a variety of different industries.
Laser cutting offers flexibility, precision, repeatability, speed, cost-effectiveness, great quality, contactless cutting, versatility, and automation capabilities.
There is no necessity to change tools for each separate cut. The same setup can be used to cut a wide variety of shapes with the same thickness of material. Additionally, intricate cuts are not a problem.
It has a number of advantages over other thermal cutting methods, including its accuracy.
It provides high accuracy without the need for any after-treatment since the accuracy is +/-0.1 mm. Typically, such a high standard does not require any extra tolerances.
Compared with mechanical cutting, laser cutting is a lot faster. Particularly when cutting more complicated shapes. Up to around 10 mm, it is faster than other thermal cutting methods like plasma and flame cutting. However, the exact advantage gained depends on the power of the laser cutter.
Modern laser cutting machines are highly automated, so the job can be accomplished with little manpower. It requires an experienced operator, but the resulting quality and safety are much higher. Laser cutting machines leave only a very small burr when setup correctly. Often, it is not even necessary to remove it. Since less manual labour is required, the cutting process results in a lower manpower costs compared to other cutting methods. Laser cutting typically has only a small heat affected zone. Smaller HAZ areas result in more predictable and reliable parts as the material microstructure along the HAZ changes.
