What is Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting works by directing the output of a laser through optics to cut high-precision patterns out of a variety metals, including steel, titanium, aluminum and copper as well as some plastics and glass.

Laser cutting is fast, precise and delivers a high-quality finish through a non-contact process at a defined focal length.

With the laser beam directed at the material, laser cutting melts, burns or vaporizes the surface, leaving a high-quality edge on the material that it’s cutting. Creating a beam of light to cut, no part of the laser system comes in contact with the material’s surface. 

Industries, materials and applications best suited for laser cutting:

  • Automotive 
  • Wood
  • Plastic
  • Acrylic
  • Steel
  • Aluminum
