Please contact our talented team of designers and laser specialists to discuss your requirements and ideas, from a one off to a production run and everything in between, we can’t wait to hear from you. When using fiber or neodymium lasers with higher intensity, the material options expand into metals, more types of plastics, and even some ceramics. We charge £6.40 (+VAT) per sheet for the taping up of materials with a low tack tape. Cell phone parts, transducers, microchips, and military and communication devices rely on laser cutting as well. The laser originates from a laser resonator, which sends out a beam of intense light through reflects through a system of mirrors to the cutting head. Depending on the type of laser that is utilized, there is a wide range of compatible materials available. We provide delivery as well as machine setup, alignment, and a comprehensive introduction to operating and maintaining your new laser cutter laser cutting service in China. We are experts in laser cutting and waterjet cutting services with the capability to cut intricate parts from many different types of materials including metal, aluminum, steel, plastic, acrylic and wood. The machine itself is made of high-quality material and has a sturdy well-thought-out design. They used their invention to cut sheet metal. Reactive cutting is like oxygen torch cutting but with a laser beam as the ignition source. Multiple factors influence the quality of a laser cut. We provide Laser Cutting and CNC bending services for sheet metal based industrial components as well as decorative cuttings. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser vaporises a thin layer of the material surface, exposing what lies beneath & leaving a burn mark that is more pronounced on more combustible materials like wood.
Xometry builds custom brackets and miscellaneous laser cutting components, well-suited for either lightweight applications or when a high degree of corrosion-resistance is needed. Also, CO2 lasers are compatible with the broadest range of materials. Manufacturers can create custom laser cut products by adjusting certain elements of the laser cut machine, such as CNC programming inputs, cut speed, heat affected zone (HAZ) and type of assist gas. The FiberCAB 44 uses a fiber optic laser, a type of solid state laser that is ideal for cutting metal. We know the best solutions come from collaboration with our customers, and our engineering staff is available to you right at the beginning of your design process. Cutting Technologies are both ISO 9001 and BS EN 1090 accredited, underlining our commitment to quality assurance. The UK’s ultimate laser cutting service will give you unrivalled levels of accuracy and efficiency in producing your parts, components and products. Most non-metal materials are supported, including solid wood, PVC, cork, plywood, density board, non-woven fabric, acrylic, and leather. The highly precise and no-vibration cutting that lasers provide also can reduce the post-processing needed to refine a part, which can be especially time-consuming when attempting to polish small dimensional areas of intricate parts after CNC milling.
Industrial lasers for cutting metal are generally of two varieties, CO2 gas or solid state fiber. Limits and constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing processes are removed through Laser Cutting, which allows freedom of design and quantities. First the machine makes holes in the material, just outside the area you want cut. Among the most common laser cut metals are titanium, stainless steel, carbon steel, mild steel, and scribing metals. It is not necessary to have strong skills in design to use Laser Cutting. If you are unsure about whether the material you are planning to laser cut is safe to use do not proceed with cutting it until you have spoken to a member of the B-made team. Because the laser beam gets wider after its focal point, the width at the bottom of the material is wider than at the top.
We can also cut frosted, clear and tinted acrylic with our high-power precision CO2 Laser. We can process a huge variety of various materials to meet your needs. On a much smaller scale, machines like vinyl cutters have a pointed cutting tool used to cut through thin materials like paper, card stock, and vinyl. If you have an idea that necessitates both 3D printing and laser cutting, Sculpteo is the service for you. The cutting process is actually surprisingly complicated. Unlike 3D printing, laser cutters create designs and patterns by cutting into materials instead of building them up layer-by-layer. We provide a 24-hour turn around cutting service so any downtime is kept to a minimum. We have over 30 years of experience in laser cutting, and have been at the forefront of technological development, ensuring we invest in the latest technology, and always striving for higher standards of efficiency, speed and quality. Capable of cutting flat, tube, box section and open section profiles, we help customers deliver projects on budget and on time from design to delivery. Our laser has a maximum output power of 3500 watts, and we can cut metals up to 6′ wide, 10′ long, and in thicknesses of 1” for steel, ½” for stainless steel, and ½” for aluminum.
