Laser cutters benefit a wide variety of industries and their versatility will likely continue to grow into the future. There are several types of laser tools for custom metal cutting, but at Irvin Services we use a fiber laser. A fiber laser uses a series of glass fibers and pump diodes to amplify a seed laser, delivering a more intense beam with improved cutting power. Fiber lasers also require less maintenance, meaning less downtime for our team and a faster turnaround for your project.
At Irvin Services, we are the trusted name in laser cutting for Central Pennsylvania and are here to tell you more about its many benefits as well as the future of fiber laser cutting machines.
Today’s fiber laser cutting equipment is even different than it was just a few years ago. Today’s fiber laser cutting machines use faster dual-drive racks. Fiber laser cutting machines can perform high precision cutting on various thin metal materials and are one of the leading international advanced technologies.
The benefits of laser cutting include flexibility, precision, repeatability, speed, cost-effectiveness, great quality, contactless cutting, versatility and automation possibilities. Laser cutting does not require an exchange of tools for each separate cut. The same setup is suitable for cutting a lot of different shapes within the same material thickness. Also, intricate cuts do not pose any problems. Accuracy is one of the primary advantages of laser cutting when compared to other thermal cutting methods.
Laser cutting is also a lot quicker than traditional mechanical cutting methods. Especially in the case of more complex cuts. The job needs little manpower as contemporary laser cutting machinery is highly automated. An experienced machine operator still plays a big role in the final quality but the speed of cutting and little need for manual labour result in lower costs compared to other cutting methods.
Then of course, there’s its versatility. Laser cutting is suitable for a variety of different materials including metals, acrylic, MDF, wood, paper, etc. One machine can be configured to perform different jobs. Of course, the ability to cut some of these materials depends on the power of your machine.
Laser cutting is better able to produce ingenious, precision cut products. And in the future, fiber laser cutting machines will likely become even more widely used in sheet metal processing, aviation, aerospace, electronics, electrical appliances, automobiles, food machinery, textile machinery, engineering, precision parts, jewelry, ships, appliances and so much more.
