Frequently Asked Questions

Industrial Laser Cutting

What is Laser Cutting?

Laser Cutting uses a CAD file to guide a high-powered laser to precisely cut out a design. Typically used in industrial manufacturing applications, laser cutting is a common process for cutting Steel, Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Polypropylene, Acrylic, MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard), Fabric, and Cardboard.

If you have any questions about our laser cutting services at Icon Engraving, please feel free to get in touch with our friendly team.

How Does Laser Cutting Work?

Guided by a computer-controlled system, laser cutting works by concentrating a high-powered laser beam at a precise vocal point on materials. The strength of the laser either melts, burns, vaporises, or is blown away by a jet of gas in the predetermined shape, size or pattern programmed into the software. The accuracy and clean finish achieved by laser cutting due to the control of the laser from the software is why it is a favoured cutting method for industrial materials.

What is Laser Cutting Used For?

Laser cutting is used for the manufacture of components across the aerospace, automotive, medical, electronics, heavy production and many other industries when precision and efficiency of the cut are required. Below is a breakdown and examples of components created using the laser cutting process.

Aerospace and Automotive: Laser cutting is commonly used on materials like aluminium and steel to create intricate components for mechanical operation and larger robust parts for structural stability.

Electronics: Commonly used to manufacture components using semiconductor materials for precision in fine electrical components and circuit board shaping.

Medical: The medical industry manufactures tools out of stainless steel due to its hygienic properties using laser cutting to ensure instruments and devices are the exact dimensions.

Heavy Production: Laser cutting is vital in this industry due to its efficiency, speed and accuracy. Commonly used for processing specialised textiles, slicing through high-strength acrylics used in protective components, and cutting industrial-grade plastics in the heavy production industry.

What is the difference between Laser Cutting and CNC Cutting?

Laser cutting is typically the technology of choice for cuts and detailed designs on thin to medium-thickness materials, including metals, plastics, and composites. As the laser makes the cuts without touching the material, laser cutters can achieve a higher level of detail with a smaller kerf.

They also are much more reliable at delivering clean edges and consistent results, especially crucial for sensitive applications such as electronics and medical devices. In addition to potentially being more cost-effective, especially for smaller quantities or detailed designs, due to the reduced setup time and high-quality precision.

Alternatively, CNC cutting is much more suited to medium to high-thickness materials, like heavy wood or thick metals. CNC cutting is a contact process that involves the use of rotating cutting tools to remove material and create the desired shape or design.

This makes the CNC’s cutting process much more suited to applications that require substantial material removal, such as 3D shapes and heavy-duty cutting tasks. Find out more about CNC Cutting at Icon Engraving.
