Our Custom Precision Laser Cutting Services

Laser cutting is the application of high power density energy generated after laser focusing to achieve sheet metal processing. Compared with traditional plate processing methods, laser cutting has the advantages of high cutting quality, high cutting speed, and wide material adaptability. At present, laser cutting technology is widely used in the processing of metal and non-metal materials, which can greatly reduce the processing time, reduce the processing cost and improve the quality of the workpiece. According to the type of laser, laser cutting machine can be divided into three types: YAG laser cutting machine, CO2 laser cutting machine, fiber laser cutting machine. They replace human labor to better complete the cutting task, in terms of models, there are many experts to conduct feasibility studies, three types of laser cutting machines each of their own characteristics.

Fiber Laser Cutting

This laser cutting machine is fast and precise when cutting thin plates, especially suitable for metal sheet materials with a thickness of less than 20mm. The process can help enable complex cutting operations such as engraving and annealing.

CO2 Laser Cutting

CO2 laser cutting machine has fast speed, high precision, requires a variety of processing gases, low photoelectric conversion rate, and high electricity consumption. It is suitable for non-metallic parts such as plastics, acrylics and wood, and can also be used for aluminum and other non-ferrous metal sheets.

Yag Laser Cutting

YAG laser cutting machine: This type of laser cutting machine is slightly slower, high precision, the whole machine does not need to process gas, can process a variety of materials.

Advantages of Laser Cutting

Laser cutting offers several benefits for many industries, ranging from precision, speed, repeatability, and flexibility. Our laser cutting service help meet industry requirements in terms of functionality and aesthetics:

  • 1. Wide range: can engrave and cut almost any material.
  • 2. Safe and reliable: non-contact processing will not cause mechanical extrusion or mechanical stress.
  • 3. High precision: the processing accuracy can reach 0.1mm.
  • 4. The effect is the same: ensure that the processing effect of the same batch is completely consistent.
  • 5. High speed and fast: can be immediately engraved and cut according to the graphics output by the computer, and the speed of laser cutting is much faster than wire cutting.
  • 6. Low cost, not limited by processing volume, suitable for small batch processing and laser processing.
  • 7. Small cutting seam: The cutting seam of laser cutting is generally 0.1-0.2 mm.
  • 8. Smooth cutting surface: the cutting surface of laser cutting has no burrs.
  • 9. Small thermal deformation: the laser cutting weld of laser processing is thin, fast and energy concentrated, so the heat transmitted to the cutting material is small, resulting in very small material deformation.
  • 10. Suitable for the processing of large products: the mold manufacturing cost of large parts is very high, laser processing does not require any mold manufacturing, laser processing completely avoids the collapse edge formed when the material flash shear, greatly reduces the production cost of the enterprise, and improves the grade of the product.
  • 11. Material saving: laser processing with computer programming can discharge materials for products of different shapes, which greatly improves the utilization rate of materials and greatly reduces the material cost of enterprises.
  • 12. Very suitable for the development of new products: Once the product drawings are formed, laser processing can be carried out immediately, and you can obtain the object of the new product in a short time.

Laser Cutting Materials

Our laser cutting services are versatile and compatible with a wide range of materials, from ferrous to non-ferrous, plastic and other non-metallic materials. Here are some laser cutting materials that can be used for your project.

Cold rolled zinc steel plateSECC galvanized steel plate SECC is a zinc plate, which is made of “SPCC cold-rolled steel plate” as raw material, and the surface is energized to plate the zinc layer to achieve the functions of anti-rust, anti-corrosion, and anti-acid. This board is often used in the electronics industry, such as in computer cases. Material characteristics: beautiful appearance, good spray coating, mostly used in communication or PC products. The disadvantage is that the cut surface is not protected by a zinc layer, which is easy to rust. Common thickness: 0.5 ~ 2.0 mm Common surface treatment: no treatment or baking paint, including powder baking paint or liquid baking paint
1. SGCC refers to: hot-dip galvanized thin steel sheet 2, SGCC meaning: S-Steel G- galvanized Galvanized C- Cold rolled C-Common ordinary grade 3. Features: (1) Corrosion resistance; (2) lacquerability; (3) formability; (4) Spot weldability. 4. Uses: extremely extensive, small household appliances, other sheet metal occasions with high general corrosion resistance. SGCC hot-dip zinc plate SGCC material is made of SPCC or SPHC steel plate into the hot zinc groove to galvanize the zinc, the surface of the zinc layer is thicker, and the zinc layer has different surfaces. 1. Ultra-smooth surface (flowerless) 2. General zinc flower (large flower) 3. Microscopic zinc flowers (florets) Material characteristics: anti-rust, corrosion-resistant part is more durable than the SECC zinc steel plate. Generally used in home appliances such as refrigerators, washing machine accessories, or other exterior accessories. Common thicknesses: No flowers 1.0 ~ 1.2 mm There are flowers 1.6 ~ 4.0 mm Common surface treatment: The original material does not need to be processed
SPCC cold rolled steel plate Steel offers a number of beneficial properties for industrial applications, including rigidity, longevity, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance. Steel sheet metal is ideal for producing complex designs and parts that require extreme precision. Steel is also cost-efficient to work with and has excellent polishing properties. The most widely used material on the market is the “SPHC hot rolled steel plate” after film processing and a series of professional extension processing iron plates, so it is called the “cold-rolled steel plate”, also known as “light plate”. Material characteristics: the appearance is very smooth and the tensile ductility is good, and the range of use is very wide. Commonly used in internal components, mechanical shells, or other metal parts with non-structural requirements. Subtypes: SPCC, 1018 Common thickness: 0.5mm ~ 3.2mm Common surface treatment: baking paint, electroplated
SPHC hot plate plate Steel sheet processed by high-temperature extension. The appearance is highly recognizable, there is a layer of black carbonization layer, sintering or spot welding is not easy, and film processing is also required before baking paint to remove the carbonization layer. The industry is known as “black leather board”. Material characteristics: mostly thick plates and rough surfaces, less important products or mechanical parts, etc., usually use such plates. Common thickness: 2.0mm ~ 12.0mm Common surface treatment: baking paint, electroplated
Commercially, aluminum is the most sought-after material for sheet metal manufacturing. Its popularity is due to its adaptive qualities and its high thermal conductivity and low resistance rates. Compared to steel—another common sheet metal material—aluminum is more cost-effective and has a higher rate of production. The material also generates the least amount of waste and can easily be reused. Subtypes: 6061, 5052 More Details>>
Stainless steel is the low carbon steel that contains a minimum of 10% chromium by weight. The material properties associated with stainless steel have made it a popular metal within a broad range of industries, including construction, automotive, aerospace and more. Within these industries, Stainless steel is versatile and is an effective choice for many applications. Subtypes: 301, 304, 316 More Details>>
Copper is a broadly used sheet metal fabrication material in many industries as it offers good malleability and ductility. Copper is also well suited for sheet metal fabrication because of its excellent heat conduction properties and electrical conductivity. Subtypes: 101, C110 More Details>>
Brass has desirable properties for a number of applications. It is low friction, has excellent electrical conductivity and has a golden (brass) appearance. Subtypes: C27400, C28000 More Details>>
