With the rapid development of the industrial market and the rapid rise of laser cutting technology in the industrial market, the advantages and disadvantages of laser cutting are confusing to many primary buyers.
Now this article will give you a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the benefits of laser cutting.
What is a laser cutter used for
Different laser cutting machines can cut different materials, such as wood, plywood, glass, leather, acrylic, and some can cut metal, stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum plate, galvanized plate and other metal materials. Different cutting processes produce different cutting effects.
What are the advantages of laser cutting
can work continuously, and use the CNC system to accurately control the cutting accuracy;
High-energy laser beam cutting can perfectly control the cutting accuracy. The minimum cutting width can reach several millimeters, so it can be used in fields that require high sheet metal precision.Different power laser cutting accuracy is also different.
No damage to the workpiece.
The width and depth of the cut are adjustable:
you can choose the material you want to cut,
By selecting the appropriate power, a wide size of incision can be achieved by focusing the laser spot.
Unlimited cutting graphics:
Complex craft images can be perfectly cut, including curves, circles and sharp angles. Suitable for mass production and processing.
What are the disadvantages of laser cutting ?
Do not cut too thick plates, because different power has a certain cutting limit. For enterprises that cut more thick plates, it may be necessary to purchase 2-3 laser cutting equipment to meet demand.
The cost is high:
The higher the power, the greater the thickness of the cutting, and the higher the cost, which is a significant expense for some enterprises.
For highly reflective copper or aluminum, special fiber lasers are required.
Affected by the surrounding environment, consumables such as focusing mirrors require regular maintenance.
Operators need to strictly follow the operating instructions and receive professional technical training, as lasers can damage people’s eyes and require goggles and protective masks.
When laser cutting plates, harmful gases are generated, causing certain environmental pollution. Additionally, a delayed dust removal device is required, which increases the cost.
The operators of the production enterprise cannot operate the laser equipment by themselves, and the laser equipment factory needs to arrange professional technicians for professional and systematic technical training.
The occurrence of fiber laser cutting machine accident
Many laser operators cause fiber laser cutting machine accidents due to improper operation or non-human factors, so Laser Cutter Safety needs to be strictly observed.

What are the Benefits of laser cutting tools
Good processing quality and low labor cost
In the actual processing and production process, we will find that the processing quality is very high and the entire cutting process is very fast. The processing and production advantages of high-quality products are more obvious, and the appearance is smoother and cleaner.
Automatic typesetting saves materials and reduces production costs
The choice of laser cutting is also not limited to cutting patterns. Automatic typesetting can now be used to save materials. The entire cutting surface is smooth and clean, and the processing cost is low.
The above is about the advantages and disadvantages of laser cutting. If you want to know more about some laser cutting equipment, you can consult us to get the latest equipment prices and product catalogs.
