OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE RESISTANT MATERIALS
If the mysterious power of light is guided, shaped and appropriately bundled, the laser beam becomes a very efficient tool.
Our solid state lasers make it possible to accurately cut such materials as steel, Hastelloy, tungsten, molybdenum, ceramics, silicon, nickel alloys and titanium, as well as non-ferrous and precious metals. The material thickness can vary from 0.05 to 3 mm in steel and 0.5 to 20 mm with ceramic materials.
Extremely fine cutting widths of up to 20 µm can be achieved by precisely focusing the beam.
Depending on the material and its thickness, sharp edges and minimal edge roughness are guaranteed. High system flexibility along with free programming make it possible to cut complex geometries and make last-minute adjustments to the desired contours of the cuts.
CERAMIC CUTTING – INCREASINGLY RELEVANT PRECISION
Using laser for the fine processing of ceramic materials that have excellent electrical, mechanical and thermal characteristics is becoming increasingly important. Ceramics are immensely popular especially in the fabrication of circuit boards and electronic components. Cutting complex geometries out of ceramics also guarantees a high degree of precision, throughput and edge quality.
Compared to conventional separation methods, precision laser cutting offer brilliant advantages:
touchless and force-free processing method
While massive tools penetrate materials in the form of gigantic mechanical forces, the laser beam works in an entirely contactless way.
no deformation of the work pieces
The light waves are absorbed by the material ad hoc and converted directly into heat. There is no mechanical impact at all on the processed work piece.
low heat influence
The laser beam focuses the heat on the material, thereby reducing the area influenced by the heat. The remaining work piece is hardly exposed to any thermal stress, if at all.
angled cuts possible with up to 25 degrees to the surface
Laser beams work in ways that are clearly precise and flexible. You can create even the most filigreed contours and structures.
long service life – due to lack of tool wear
In contrast to mechanical tools, the laser beam does not cause any wear to the materials.
makes economic sense for single productions as well as small batches
Compared to conventional methods, lasers are distinguished by high processing speed, quality and productivity. In line with cost-optimized and quick manufacturing, no post-processing is needed.
