Fiber Laser Cutting

Fiber Laser Cutting

What is Fiber Laser Cutting?

A fiber laser is a solid state generated laser beam that is transmitted to the cutting head of the machine through a small fiber optic cable. This directed source of light is used to heat the material being cut to a molten state in a very concentrated area, and assist gas, usually nitrogen or oxygen, to push the molten material and create a slit.

Cutting with a fiber laser provides numerous benefits over other alternatives, including:

  • Higher accuracy than Plasma cutting or torch cutting
  • Better edge quality than Plasma cutting or torch cutting
  • Faster production of parts – well suited for large production runs
  • Lower tooling costs than stamping
  • Capability to tackle complicated geometries that a punch press cannot easily deliver
