Laser cutter are optimal for cutting because of their precision. Your nested shapes will share borders/lines and be completely finished in one cut, saving you both time and materials. Significant benefits to other cutting technologies besides decreasing waste, include a single cutting step that produces polished and/or sealed edges in a single pass.
Laser cutting machine are Computer Numerical Controlled machines that are used to cut various materials in specific patterns and shapes. Laser Cutting machining operates by nesting your patterns to make the laser perform at maximum capacity, tremendously reducing waste.
At the heart of a laser cutter is something called “a laser resonator,” which is where laser beams originate. This powerful beam is bounced through a system of mirrors all the way up to the cutting head. Inside the cutting head, the laser hits a lens, narrowing its focus down to a very concentrated and extremely thin beam. This beam is then projected downwards onto the material and can accurately or etch cut the raw stock.
There are three main laser cutters that are used in manufacturing. They are CO2 laser cutter, fiber lasers, and neodymium lasers.
CO2 lasers have a laser cutting beam which is generated from gas mixtures that are mostly comprised of carbon dioxide and stimulated with electricity. In neodymium lasers, neodymium-doped crystals are used to form the laser cutting beam. With fiber lasers, the laser cutting beam is made from a seed laser, which is then amplified through the use of special glass fibers. For most work done by PSPs, the CO2 lasers are what is typically used to cut fabric and acrylic.
Hope my article will helpful to you, we are the manufacture of the laser cutting machine, if have any question, pls feel free to let me know.
