Laser cutting

In an optical fibre laser, the beam is created by the agitation of solid yttrium or neodymium crystals. Gases are not involved and the wavelength of the generated beam is 1µm, i.e. 9 times smaller than a beam created by a CO₂ laser. Optical fibre is ideal for beam transmission without any risk of absorption or deformation. The name of the fibre laser refers not to how the beam is generated, but the way it is transported.

Characteristics of laser cutting

Laser cutting is a technique that separates or divides steel by heating the material to melting temperature.

This process is achieved by two simultaneous processes: the stimulated emission of radiation and an extremely high-pressure gas flow (normally oxygen, nitrogen or argon) that pushes the molten material away.

The area of metal that has been thermally affected by radiation is extremely limited, which helps prevent distortions to the material and changes to its physical properties.

We have recently acquired a new TECOI brand model LS DISK 1630, with TWIN DISKS and DPF features for each of the dual heads. Fibre lasers cut holes that would otherwise be impossible to create or extremely difficult to produce using a conventional laser.

This process also provides considerably higher cutting speeds, especially in reduced thicknesses (<10MM). The use of H₂, CO₂ or N₂ gases is not required to generate the laser beam.

This machine is a show of our commitment to new, large-scale, laser cutting technology, to providing an improved service, not to mention a wide range of possibilities for our clients.
