All of these attributes make this machine highly suitable for STEAM education. If you fancy 3D laser printing and engraving in your home than this is the laser cutting machine to consider. The Dremel Laser Cutter is a high end machine that provides an unmatched level of precision and functionality.
No routing your phone calls to a call center, instead we will pick up the phone and discuss your needs as down to earth laser machine experts. Even if nothing breaks unexpectedly, some of the parts involved are “consumable” and thus expected to wear down with use. The lens, mirror and laser tube, for example, are expected to last about a year with regular use, according to the company’s estimates.
We’ve delivered some of the most advanced laser converting systems in production today for the most demanding markets. No matter your requirements, we have a solution to manufacture your product and we aren’t done until you’re making good parts. The Flex Edge is a flexible laser platform that can be used inline or offline with various configurations to allow for production and R&D use in both roll to roll and sheet-fed. It can be bolted inline directly to an existing Delta ModTech machine, use its telescoping arm to connect to an open station on an existing converting line or run as a standalone unit. Multiple cuts can be overlaid to minimize amount of material removed during one cut pattern.
Once formed into sheets, it is plywood, which makes it strong and durable. And because of its thinness, it is quick—and thus more economical—to laser cut. This laser cut exterior signage, designed by Jack Candlish for a Wellington, New Zealand coffee shop, was installed on macrocarpa slats.
When cutting stainless steel or aluminum, the laser beam simply melts the material, and high pressure nitrogen is used to blow the molten metal out of the kerf. AMADA’s 3kW, 6kW, 9kW, and 12kW ENSIS fiber laser technology utilizes a highly innovative resonator to automatically and precisely adjust the diameter of the laser beam. This unique feature enables continuous processing of thin-to-thick materials by a single machine with no lens change or additional setup required. AMADA engineered the 3kW ENSIS 3015 RI to include an innovative Rotary Index with the power and speed to efficiently transition from flat sheet to tube or pipe cutting.
Since laser cutting can be used with CNC machining, it offers incredible repeatability and accuracy with high automation potential. Laser cutting doesn’t require any physical contact with the materials. This means a smaller heat-affected zone than other conventional cutting processes, resulting in reduced material distortion. Since the development of lasers in the 1960s, the technology has become a staple of manufacturing. Laser cutting offers rapid speeds, minimal waste production, and incredible scalability—especially when combined with computer numerical control technology.
Again, it is not possible to cover cutting speeds for every 4kW CO2 laser cutter so we will use an “average” cutting speed for these machines. Some CO2 laser cutters may cut a bit faster and some a bit slower. Note that these examples are for brand new laser and beam delivery optics and assume that the optics are in correct alignment. When fiber lasers were first introduced, at IMTS in 2008, there were only a couple of companies demonstrating them at the show; and they were first introduced at the 2kW level.
CNC laser cutting is typically faster than water jet cutting or other conventional machining processes, facilitating high-volume production of parts with complex cuts. Our long tenured operators take tremendous pride in the quality of work they produce and through constant training, experimenting, and teamwork are some of the most knowledgeable and capable operators around. Our custom laser cutting services, our TRUMPF TruLaser 3040 and our TRUMPF TruLaser 3030, surpasses the industry standard for cutting the most intricate designs in an assortment of metals. Whether you have one specialized project, or large volume production our laser sheet metal cutting services provides perfection without compromise.
