WHAT IS LASER CUTTING?

Truelaser-300x250Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut sheet metal. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which melts, & then is blown away by a jet of oxygen or nitrogen, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.The head of the laser cutter is moved over a sheet of metal using CNC (computer numerical control.) the result is a high accuracy sheet metal part.

 

Why we choose to laser cut Sheet metal 

Black Lab decided to go with a fiber Laser cutter for many reasons. The process of laser cutting is fast & Precise. This means we are able to produce large numbers of products quickly. The fiber Laser means we are able to cut material such as brass and copper.

Laser cutting sheet metal gives us the accuracy to make parts that just fit together, saving much time and reducing costly rework.
