Sheet Metal Laser Cutting FAQ's

Sheet metal laser cutting is a precise and efficient industrial process that uses a high-powered laser beam to cut intricate shapes, designs, or patterns from flat sheets of metal. The laser beam melts, burns, or vaporizes the material, creating accurate cuts with minimal heat-affected zones.

Laser cutting is an extremely versatile method of processing a wide range of sheet metals, some of which include:

  • Stainless steel
  • Mild/carbon steel
  • Aluminium
  • Titanium
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Bronze
  • Alloys

The suitability of metal for laser cutting depends on factors like thickness, reflectivity, and thermal conductivity. For more information, contact The Laser Cutting Co. today.

Laser cutting machines direct a focused laser beam onto the metal surface. The intense heat from the laser melts or vaporizes the material along the designated cutting path. Simultaneously, a gas jet blows away the molten metal, resulting in a precise cut. Computer numerical control (CNC) programming guides the laser’s movement to create intricate shapes.

Sheet metal laser cutting offers high precision, intricate detailing, minimal material wastage, reduced tool wear, fast production times, and the ability to cut complex shapes without the need for specialised tooling.

At The Laser Cutting Co., we can cut metal sheet thicknesses from 10mm up to 50mm thick, depending upon the sheet metal chosen.
