Advantages of Laser Cutting In the Manufacturing Process

by Dharmendra Singh Digital Expert

Cutting of the metals is an important part of manufacturing processes. Whether it is about the manufacturing of the automobiles, aircraft, ships, furniture or anything else, there is a need to cut the metals into different shapes and sizes. Traditional cutting tools are not much efficient or powerful to give the precise measurements of the cut metals.  Nowadays, advanced cutting methods are used in the industries for the manufacturing process.  It includes the laser cutting method.  Laser cutting is the technology which uses the high powered laser beam to cut the metals.

Get precision cutting with laser cutting technology

Plasma cutting is a widely accepted method for cutting the metals, but laser cutting is the advanced method. It has eliminated the need for machining in engineering jobs hence helps in cutting down a lot of expenses in the manufacturing process. Laser cutting machine is computer-controlled which gives the high precision and efficient cutting of the metals. It has the ability to quickly cut the thick sheets of metals with the higher precision. Laser cut aluminum technology is widely used in aircraft manufacturing for precisely cutting the aluminum sheet.

A cutting process with less energy consumption

The laser cutting uses less energy for cutting the metal sheets as compared to plasma cutting method.  This helps in saving a lot of energy bills for the manufacturers and makes the manufacturing process more economical.

Simplify the cutting of the complex shapes

Many times, there is a need to cut the metals into different shapes and sizes to meet the manufacturing specifications.  This is due to the rising demand of the customized products. Hence, with the use of the laser cutting machine, it is easier to cut the metal sheets into any design and any shape. If there is a need to cut small diameter holes with complex detail on the steel sheet and that too with the good edges, then laser cut steel technology is the best. Thus, it can be said that the introduction of the laser cutting technology has brought the transformation in the manufacturing industry.

Laser cutting is a non-contact process

One of the great advantages of the laser cutting is that it is a no-contact process hence during the cutting process there is no scratching on the surface of the metal. This helps in maintaining the newness of the metal pieces which are obtained after cutting the metal sheets. It also helps in minimizing the other types of damages which are done to the machine by using other types of cutting process. Moreover, the non-touch action of the laser nozzle speeds up the cutting process. The nozzle doesn’t have to face the resistance while moving on the metal sheet.
