Laser Cutting FAQ's
Laser cutting is a method of metal cutting that uses a high-powered laser to vaporise and cut metal. Laser Cutting is most commonly used for industrial applications, but can also be used to create bespoke laser etching and engraving.
A multitude of materials can be laser cut to suit a range of purposes and applications, including a range of metals.
Although the majority of materials can be laser cut, some materials are not recommended for laser cutting. Some of these materials include fibreglass, polycarbonate, PVC and HDPE.
Laser cutting involves focusing a laser beam through a lens onto the material to be cut. The intense heat of the laser beam melts or vaporizes the material along the desired cutting path, creating a narrow kerf. Computer-controlled movements guide the laser beam, allowing for intricate and precise cuts.
There are several advantages to using laser cutting, some of which include:
- Cuts non-ferrous materials easily
- Rapid turn around
- Can cut through metals up to 50mm thick
Capable of cutting highly-detailed and precise shapes
Although there are a plethora of benefits to laser cutting, it requires a significant amount of money to maintain. This is one of the many reasons why we here at The Laser Cutting Co. invest in the best and most advanced laser cutting technology, so our customers don’t have to; saving considerable costs whilst still providing a premium quality product.
The costs of laser cutting can vary greatly depending upon certain factors, including materials, the time required for cutting, level of detail, delivery, and labour. Here at The Laser Cutting Co., 24-hour production paired with our suite of industry-defining laser cutting machines ensures that we are able to provide incredible lead times and provide thorough and cost-effective solutions.

The three major types of laser cutting include:
- Fusion Cutting – a cutting technique that cuts metal by melting them and then blowing out the molten remnants using a high-pressure stream of inert gas.
- Remote Cutting: involves cutting very thin and delicate materials without the use of gas, as the laser itself is able to evaporate the material away.
Laser cutters are capable of the following…
The kerf of a laser cutting machine is considerably thinner than the kerf of a sawblade, so is therefore capable of extremely detailed and refined cutting when compared to other methods of material cutting; with a cutting tolerance of +-0.25mm.
At The Laser Cutting Co., our laser cutting tolerances are unrivalled. With our professional suite of laser cutting machines, we are able to process sheet metal sizes up to 2500mm x 6000mm, and up to 50mm thick.
