1.1.2. Laser Cutting Machine
Laser Cutting is a non-contact process resulting in high quality, dimensionally accurate cuts. Laser is the most precise method for cutting. The material melts, burns, vaporizes, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Waterjet is applying high forces on the material so small parts may be deformed or even can’t be cut at all, for small pieces laser cutting shall be preferred. If for example engraving a serial number on the material is needed, laser cutting shall be used as engraving is not possible with waterjets.
