Jamieson Laser: Engraving, Marking, and Cutting

LASER CUTTING

How to use your Jamieson Laser for Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut different materials and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by using a computer to direct the output of a high-power laser at the material to be cut. The material then either melts, burns, vaporizes, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials.

Different Kinds of Lasers Cutters

 

There are three main types of lasers used in laser cutting. The CO2 laser is suited for cutting, boring, and engraving. The neodymium (Nd) and neodymium yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd-YAG) lasers are identical in style and differ only in application. Common variants of CO2 lasers include fast axial flow, slow axial flow, transverse flow, and slab.

 

CO2 Laser cutters produce a perfect laser cut and deliver sharp, clean edges that won't fray. Users never come in contact with open and moving machine parts, so laser cutters are safe machines that meet strict safety standards.

 

Applications

A variety of laser cutters are available including desktop, mid-size, large-size, and industrial units that outperform conventional cutting systems in terms of speed and productivity. Today, laser cutting can be done much easier and faster and is used in a wide range of applications and industries.

 

Innovative laser cutters are used for diverse applications, such as cutting acrylic, architectural models, foils and films, signage, paper toys, wood, fabrics, plastics, and more.

 

A laser cutter from Jamieson Laser can be used flexibly and adapted to many diverse applications, including individual needs just as easily as mass production.

 

These small scale models are just a few examples of different materials that can be cut by one of our laser machines.  Check out our samples page to see what else our laser cutters can do.
