How to select the best laser cutting machine for your business

Updated on

The type of materials to be cut, the size and complexity of the components, and the production volume will all affect the ideal laser-cutting equipment for a contract-cutting business. When choosing a laser-cutting device, keep the following in mind:

Laser sources: such as CO2, fibre, or Nd: YAG, are more effective in cutting particular types of materials. For instance, fibre lasers are more effective at cutting metals than CO2 lasers are at cutting non-metallic materials.

Cutting area: The size of the parts that can be cut depends on the cutting area’s dimensions. The cutting area of the machine you choose must be appropriate for the size of the pieces you’re cutting.

Cutting speed: How rapidly parts can be created will depend on the laser’s cutting speed. Faster cutting rates might be more effective, but they might also call for stronger lasers and more expensive machinery.

Precision: To produce high-quality products with smooth edges, the laser cutting machine’s precision is crucial. Choose a machine with a high degree of repeatability and positional accuracy.

Automation: Features that increase efficiency and minimise the need for operator involvement include automatic material handling and fume extraction.

The ideal laser cutting device for a contract cutting firm will ultimately depend on the particular needs and specifications of the organisation. To choose the ideal machine, it may be beneficial to speak with a supplier or service provider of laser-cutting equipment.
