What Can You Cut On A Fibre Laser?

Industries all over the world are highly reliant on fibre laser cutters, including the aerospace, medical, electronics, automotive and homeware sectors – and these machines can be used to create a vast range of different products, featuring the use of fibre optic cables to intensify light beams in order to cut different materials.

One key benefit of these machines is that they’re able to cut a range of materials, including brass, steel, stainless steel, copper and aluminium.

They’re also incredibly precise and this accuracy is what makes them such a popular option, as they’re able to cut everything from aerospace and automotive parts to marking out batch numbers and QR and barcodes. They can do it all!

As well as being able to cut incredibly thick materials quickly, efficiently and with pinpoint accuracy, fibre lasers come with other clear benefits, including very little need for maintenance work, high energy efficiency standards and production speed.

These fibre lasers are incredibly powerful and they’re perfectly suited for use with heavy-duty metal cutting, whether you’re interested in part cutting or something like engraving. However, if you’re planning to cut or engrave something like leather, card, wood, fabric or acrylic, you might be better served with a CO2 laser instead.

Fibre lasers work by focusing a high-powered laser straight onto the metal that needs to be cut, positioned beneath the focusing lens found inside the cutting head. When the energy beam is turned on, the material in question absorbs it, which produces very high temperatures that then vapourise the material, allowing for successful cutting processes.

They are excellent tools for the processing and cutting of metals. If you’d like to find out more about laser cutting in Nottingham and the surrounding areas, get in touch with Exact Precision today.
