Laser technology in metal processing
Laser cutting refers to a cutting process with which metallic and non-metallic materials of different material thicknesses can be cut. The basis for this is a laser beam that is guided, shaped and bundled. When this beam hits the workpiece, the material heats up to such an extent that it melts or vaporizes. The entire laser power is concentrated on a point usually less than half a millimeter in diameter. If more heat is coupled in at this point than can flow out through heat conduction, the laser beam penetrates the material completely – the cutting process has begun. Whereas in other processes massive tools exert enormous forces on the sheet metal, the laser beam does its work without contact. This means that neither the tool itself wears out, nor is there any deformation or damage to the workpiece.
