Laser cutting machines in industrial manufacturing

A laser cutting machine is a widely distributed machine tool for sheet metal processing. There are three common processes: laser beam oxygen cutting, fusion cutting and sublimation cutting.

  • There is a difference between the three main laser processes
  • One piece can be used for many different materials
  • Economic use of materials with clean cut edges

The advantages of laser cutting machines include: one piece can be used to cut a variety of materials; the economical use of material; for some materials there are very clean cuts that do not have to be further processed. Disadvantages include high costs for the machine as well as following costs resulting from the high use of energy and gas. A laser cutting machine is composed out of an enclosed base frame, which contains all of the components. The most important element of the system is the source of the laser beam, that guides the laser beam and the processing head, which contains an optic used to focus the laser beam. These elements both contain a variety of mirrors to help guide the beam. The cutting nozzle is made out of copper and directs the gas to the cutting spot in the processing area.

The bearing surface of the material to be cut contains pointed screws or cutting teeth, which guarantee low surface contact. Resistant material alongside the laser beam is used to provide reflection in order to prevent damage of the material from below. With laser cutting machines, the preparation for the process is important. The programme used for operating the machine can be used offline, or even directly through inputting the values required for the machine. Most of the time, CAD/CAM solutions are used.

History, development and background of laser cutting machines

Laser cutting machines were developed for the efficient processing of workpieces and, compared to punching and nibbling, they can be very economically used for small numbers of workpieces. Currently, there are a lot of manufactures who are producing combined machines that are used for laser cutting, punching and nibbling. Other advantages are that it can cut stainless steel very economically, and it can create very complex forms.

Areas of application and examples of laser cutting machines

Laser cutting machines are used everywhere, where sheet metal needs to be processed. This includes steel construction, machine building and the construction of fixtures and tools. Very complex shapes can be cut out. For example, a laser pulse is used to manufacture small pinions out of structural steel. Special ventilation grilles can also be manufactured using laser cutting machines. Steel up to 40mm thick, stainless steel 50mm thick and aluminium 25mm thick can be cut effectively using these machines.

Brand names and manufacturers of laser cutting machines

Several companies have specialised in the manufacturing of laser cutting machines. Some of the most recommended suppliers include TRUMPF, MAZAK, ESAB, LASER, ERMAK, AMADA, HACO, BEHRENS and PRIMA INDUSTRIE.
