Laser technology applications – laser cutting, laser engraving, laser welding
High power laser machines allow you to perform various operations, in summary these are:
Cutting sheet material in general. Precise, fast and clean. With the help of special machines it is also possible to laser cut 3D objects.
Laser engraving and marking
Laser engraving and marking of images, logos, type numbers, texts, barcodes, QR codes and so on.
Connecting especially metal parts.
Applications laser technology – process organic materials with CO2 laser
CO2 laser machines are suitable for laser cutting and laser engraving of a large number of especially organic materials due to the used wavelength of 10.6um. Materials to consider include:
- Wood both natural wood and pressed wood
- Leather including artificial leather
- Cardboard, paper
- foam rubber
- Paint / anodizing layers
- Plastic (including PMMA, Acrylic, Plexiglass)
- silicone rubbers
- Textile, fabric, fleece etc.
- Natural stone and so on
In most cases it is possible to laser engrave as well as cut with the same machine. The machines are often optimized for a specific application, making them most suitable for (production) laser cutting and for engraving at a lower speed. Other solutions are for production laser engraving and in a number of cases can not even be cut.
Laser engraving and laser marking of metals – fiber
Laser engraving of metal with fiber marking lasers is a clean, fast and flexible processing method for engraving metals. You can provide each object with unique texts, serial numbers, barcodes or logos. The engraving is placed within a few seconds. The engraving is permanent in the metal and does not dissolve with cleaning agents. Depending on the material, barcodes are easy to read with a mobile phone or professional scanner. For laser engraving, a fiber laser with a wavelength of 1060nm is used.
Laser cutting of metals – fiber
Metal laser cutting has a large number of applications. Metal lasers are frequently used for educational purposes but also for various production purposes. Here you will find a number of examples of the use of laser technology. The number of applications of these machines is still growing every day. With these machines you can quickly realize prototypes, replace parts, but also realize high volume production. Please contact MetaQuip for further information.
