How Laser Cutting Machines Work
A metal laser cutter uses a high-powered laser beam to cut through different types of metals. The process involves several steps:

  1. Preparation: The metal surface is clean and debris-free to ensure the laser can cut the metal accurately and cleanly.
  2. Programming: A digital design of the required part(s) is programmed into computer-aided design (CAD) software and uploaded to the laser cutter’s computer system.
  3. Set-up: The metal rests on the cutting bed, and the laser cutter’s focus is adjusted based on the thickness of the material. The operator then sets the cutting parameters, such as laser power, cutting speed, and gas flow rate.
  4. Cutting: The laser beam is directed onto the metal, creating a high-intensity heat source that melts and vaporizes the metal. The gas flow helps to blow away the molten metal and debris, making a clean cut. The laser cutter’s computer system controls the movement of the cutting head, following the programmed design to create the desired shape.
  5. Finishing: After cutting, the metal may require further processing, such as deburring or polishing, to achieve the desired surface finish.

The laser used in metal laser cutting is typically a high-powered CO2 or fiber laser. CO2 lasers are commonly used for cutting thicker metals, while fiber lasers are better suited for cutting thinner materials. The laser beam is focused onto the metal using a lens, which creates a small, precise spot that can reach temperatures of thousands of degrees Celsius.
