Laser cutting is one of the most modern and accurate methods for flat cuts. Unlike the plasma pantograph, this method uses a concentrated light beam (Laser).
Gas excitation precedes the cut beam generation. In our machine, this is done using carbon dioxide, whose molecules are subjected to vibration. This oscillation is transferred to the nitrogen, oxygen or hydrogen molecules (depending on which of these cutting gases is used; we currently have the three of them), and due to the chemical properties of the gases, energy is released as an infrared light beam that cuts the material.
While this method has speeds similar to those of a plasma machine (around 20,000 mm per minute) as the width of the cutting beam is quite narrow, the thermal impact on the piece is even lower, resulting in a more accurate and sharper cut.
Today, we have a state-of-the-art system which enables us to work on metal sheets and also on square and round pipes, thus expanding the range of possibilities. This new technology allows for cutting round and square holes, or holes of different shapes, fish mouth and customized cuts, among others.
We can also support documentation compatible with the most widely-used design software in the industry (AutoCAD, Catia and SolidWorks), as well as the drawing formats they support (dwg, dxf, JGES, step, sldprt, among others). If requested, our design team can also offer special solutions.
