Laser Cutting

How Does Laser Cutting Work?

The process of laser cutting offers the best quality when it comes to high precision tools. Our laser cutting machines are accurate, cost-effective and create a clean cut. Laser cutting is ideal for manufacturing and other industrial applications that call for a powerful cutting tool that also performs with a high level of accuracy. Laser cutting machines can cut through titanium, aluminium, steel and many other materials.

Laser cutting is done through the use of a beam of infrared light. Although laser light beams can’t be seen by the human eye, they are a powerful tool that can be used with a high level of precision.

Here’s how laser cutting works for metals: We direct the laser beam as needed with a curved lens. An intense heat is created by the laser as the light beam is magnified through the lens and focused by it. The laser cutter can then be used to cut or melt the materials at hand depending on what kind of product it is.

The laser is directed through the end of a nozzle along with either nitrogen or oxygen. Aluminium and stainless steel can be melted with the laser and nitrogen mixture, while other types of steel can be cut using an oxygen and laser mixture.

What makes lasers so useful is that with a laser cutting machine, it’s possible to cut through a wide range of materials. Whether it’s a complex job or simple metal cutting, our high-quality laser technology can handle the job. Our professionals are fully trained in the accurate handling of the laser cutters and are certified in safe practices.

Let’s maximize the superior accuracy and speed of laser cutting.

Laser cutting is compatible with numerous materials and offers far more control and a cleaner finish than conventional cutting. Whether you need assistance cutting delicate parts to size, creating smoother edges, or creating intricate shapes, Laser Light Technologies helps you take full advantage of all that laser cutting processes can offer to your project.

We combine our widely experienced engineers and technicians with innovative micromachining laser systems and time-tested processes to deliver exceptional results that meet the strictest of industry specifications.

Our collaborative approach makes your project the priority, from desired outcomes to production quality and delivery time frames. After learning what you need from us, we test cut samples of your material to inform a project quote that meets your exact requirements, or even goes beyond them with recommendations for better-than-expected results. We’re focused on your success.
