What Are the Laser Cutting Advantages and Disadvantages

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

Fast speed:

can work continuously, and use the CNC system to accurately control the cutting accuracy;

High precision:

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.

Non-contact cutting:

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 ?

Cutting limitations:

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.

Material limitations:

For highly reflective copper or aluminum, special fiber lasers are required.

Environmental factors:

Affected by the surrounding environment, consumables such as focusing mirrors require regular maintenance.

Safe operation:

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.

Harmful gas

When laser cutting plates, harmful gases are generated, causing certain environmental pollution. Additionally, a delayed dust removal device is required, which increases the cost.

Professional technology

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.
