The CO2 laser cutting is a process in which a heat source (laser beam) melts a material and a jet of gas deletes it quickly.
Thanks to the high precision of CO2 laser cutting beam and the high purity of the assist gas used, you get a clean cut, without burrs, glossy, very low roughness and high geometric precision.
The use of CO2 laser for cutting is now widely used by manufacturers of molded parts.
Thanks to a unique combination of features, the CO2 laser cutting provides excellent results with thin sheets. Pieces made with the CO2 laser cutting does not usually require finishing treatments.
The CO2 laser cutting is therefore the ideal complement to the cutting torch and plasma. In the industrial field is currently used exclusively in the laser CO2, as far superior to all other types of laser, thanks to its specific power proportionally higher.
With the technique CO2 laser you can cut almost all metals and even non-metallic materials, such as plastic, wood and ceramics.
Below we give an example of the variety of materials you can work with laser systems even if the list will not be exhaustive but continuously changing depending on the technical innovations made to the laser sources over time.
- Carbon steels (up to 25 mm)
- Stainless steel (up to 15 mm)
- Aluminum alloys (up to 10 mm)
- Titanium and its alloys
- Composite materials
