Overview: How Laser Cutting works?

The Basics Of Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting In Progress

Laser cutting generates the first 2D flat of the sheet metal fabrication. Turnaround time for laser cutting is faster than punching, saving you time on shorter runs, and is more precise and consistent cut than mechanical cutting.

CNC laser cutting produces consistent clean edges to the most exacting tolerances. It is a flexible, versatile manufacturing solution for fabricating parts with complex geometries that require distortion-free finishes.

How Laser Cutters Works

Laser focusing optics are used to direct electrical energy into a high-density light beam, and CNC is used to manage either the workpiece or the laser beam. The material processed by the laser cutter is then melted, burned, vaporized, or blown away by a jet of oxygen or nitrogen.Benefits of Laser cutting With FacFox

Laser Cutting Processes

[one_half]

2D Laser Cutting

2D CNC laser cutting produces consistent clean edges to the most exacting tolerances. It is a flexible, versatile manufacturing solution for fabricating parts with complex geometries that require distortion-free finishes.

[/one_half][one_half_last]

3D Laser Cutting

3D laser cutting is used to cut slots, holes, corners, and other features in parts such as tubes, channels, angles, and beams. Using a 5-axis laser cutter, 3-D laser cutting is fast, precise, and repeatable. Multi-axis machinery can produce precision parts with complex geometries and surface features in one process.

The finish option with the quickest turnaround.

Parts are left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, which can be removed upon request. Surface finish is comparable to 125 uin Ra finish.

Abrasive blasting, more commonly known as sandblasting, is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants.

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized.

[/spb_text_block] [/spb_tab] [spb_tab title=”Powder Coat” icon=”” id=”powdercoat”] [spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom=”no” pb_border_bottom=”no” width=”1/2″ el_position=”first”]

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in coating and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminium extrusionsdrum hardware and automobile and bicycle parts.
