Can You Laser Cut Metal?

Last Updated on October 24, 2023 by assistant

In the modern world of manufacturing, precision and efficiency are crucial for project success. Among the many cutting-edge technologies available, laser cutting has slowly developed into a hot and normal topic. From complex designs to powerful industrial applications, laser cutting delivers unparalleled precision, speed, and versatility. In this article, we’ll discuss Ruitai’s laser-cutting capabilities and explore its social value in empowering the industry and fostering innovation.

What is laser cutting?

Laser cutting is a high-precision manufacturing process that uses a focused laser beam to cut various materials, including metals. The process begins with a CAD (computer-aided design) file containing the design or pattern to be cut. The CAD file is converted into G-code, which provides instructions for the CNC machine operating the laser cutter. The laser beam heats the material to a melting or vaporization point, while auxiliary gas blows away debris for a clean cut.

Laser cutting involves the precise interaction of a focused laser beam, a computer-controlled mirror, and a cutting head. By harnessing the power of light, laser cutting surpasses traditional cutting methods in several ways. The intense heat of the laser beam quickly melts and vaporizes the material, allowing for precise cuts and minimal waste. This precision enables the creation of complex designs, intricate shapes, and tight tolerances that were once difficult to achieve. Now it has become the norm for Ruitai CNC machining service providers.


Enabling industries

Today, laser cutting is essential in industries like aerospace, automotive, electronics, construction, etc. Ruitai’s machines can cut steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass for diverse applications.

In aerospace, laser cutting manufactures lightweight parts with complex geometries, reducing aircraft weight and improving fuel efficiency. Likewise, in automotive manufacturing, laser-cut parts ensure assembly accuracy, and improve safety and performance, while reducing production costs.

The electronics industry benefits from laser cutting’s ability to create precise microcircuits, enabling smaller and more powerful electronic devices. Construction uses it for intricate metal facades with structural integrity.
