Benefits Of Flat Sheet Laser Cutting
Among the multitude of ways to produce metal parts, flat sheet laser cutting is a great option for many reasons. Why choose this method of cutting over other methods, such as water jet, plasma, or just a good old-fashioned saw? Depending on the needs of your manufacturing project, our flat sheet laser cutting service can offer a powerful combination of benefits.
What’s So Great About Flat Sheet Laser Cutting?
- It’s fast and accurate.
Flat sheet laser cutting can produce a large number of parts quickly and with precision—while using less energy than plasma cutting. Using an advanced computer-controlled process, flat sheet lasers maintain their cutting accuracy even throughout the highest-volume jobs.
- It produces a clean cut.
Because laser beams can’t wear down, laser cutting results in edges that are clean and of higher quality than what traditional cutting can accomplish.
- It can handle complexity without extra processes.
Flat sheet laser cutting can make parts with complex shapes—without the additional step of tooling. Even better, our flat sheet laser cutting equipment can also add holes, slots, and other shapes into your parts as it cuts them.
- It can simultaneously add finishing touches.
During cutting process, our flat sheet laser can etch and mark materials. How’s that for efficiency? Add part numbers, alignment markings and more during the cutting process.
- It minimizes the risk of damage to parts.
Because it’s a non-contact cutting method, flat sheet laser cutting doesn’t burr, distort, or striate the metal. That helps eliminate the need for finishing steps such as grinding or polishing.
- It can save you a lot of money.
Because of its speed in production, the elimination of secondary manufacturing steps, and complex nesting software, flat sheet laser cutting saves time, materials and money. When you need either simple or complex metal parts fast, it is the best way to go!
