How to cut with a CNC laser
CNC cutting includes laser and drill cutting. The machine takes command from a computer. The difference is that in laser cutting of objects, if metal or non-metallic parts are cut by shining a strong laser beam on the surface of the cutting body, in CNC laser cutting, a type of mat is used instead of a laser.
On the other hand, in laser cutting, unlike CNC laser cutting, it is not possible to instruct the computer to cut a piece of metal or non-metal to the desired depth, which is desired by the employer. While in CNC laser cutting, the accuracy is so high that the employer Creates a desired depth cut in a metal or nonmetal body by providing a command via computer.
Differences in cutting with CNC lasers and lasers
Other differences between laser cutting and CNC laser cutting include:
pointed out the different applications of these two technologies; In this way, lasers can be used in very sensitive cuts that also have high fineness, but if it is intended to use lasers for three-dimensional cuts, it is better to do this cutting through CNC laser cutting. Because cutting through this technology is more like inlay work and has a very high elegance.
Also, if a large volume of metal or non-metal is to be cut, it should be done through a CNC cutting machine. However, it should be noted that laser cutting can also burn parts of objects to some extent, while in CNC laser cutting, both metal and non-metal parts will never be burned.
Cutting through the CNC machine allows the employer to never burn or press the edge of the cut parts, while cutting with the CNC machine due to its capacity can cut objects to client desired form and shape.
Types of CNC laser cutting machine
CNC laser cutting machines are diverse. The most famous of these machines are; CNC laser machine, CNC milling machine and it should also be added that CNC laser cutting machine is divided into two parts: metal cutting machine and non-metal.
CNC laser cutting machine for metals
This cutting machine is used for cutting metals as well as engraving on metals or cutting, turning, welding, etc. on metals. In addition, considering the advantages that were mostly mentioned about CNC laser cutting, including accuracy and, of course, speed of operation along with quality, it should be noted that cutting with this machine does not require post-cutting processing.
For instance, in the field of metal cutting, it should be said that the use of CNC laser cutting machines has introduced a technology into the world of door production of buildings with high diversity. If this cutting model has caused the production of different types of construction doors and of course the variety in its new designs, in addition to the door, we can also mention the variety in complex designs of other equipment, including types of construction rods and fences to doors and fences in the city.
Variety in design and construction, as well as various engravings on such metals from the doors of buildings to railings and construction rods or railings and rods in the city, which provide variety in its design and shapes. Certainly in the old days before this industrial technology providing these varieties in shapes and patterns were onerous and expensive indeed.
Therefore, it should be mentioned that this technology is one of the best technologies in the field of laser cutting, which can be introduced to various industries by CNC laser cutting to cut steel sheets with different thicknesses.
Other notable advantages of using CNC laser cutting machines include the ability to cut its iron sheets to the point of cutting iron sheets with different thicknesses up to 20 mm and a length of 6 meters and a width of 2 meters, as well as for cutting stainless steel sheets. It also has aluminum sheet cutting and galvanized sheet cutting up to 8 mm thickness, 6 m length and 2 m width.
Non-metallic CNC laser cutting machine
Using the CNC laser cutting machine, engraving, designing and even cutting can be done on non-metallic materials such as plastic, Plexiglas, wood, glass and fabric. Other applications of CNC laser cutting machines on non-metals include making wall clocks and presenting various designs on wall clocks or watches, boxes or photo frames, office equipment, small puzzles and making various models.
CNC laser cutting machine for cutting wood
Another of the most widely used uses of this technology is cutting on non-metals such as wood. Do not forget that CNC laser cutting is used in all kinds of furniture that you use, as well as presenting a variety of designs and complex models that have not been seen before in this industry.
In the following, we can point out the subtleties in the new furniture designs that require more special sensitivity in cutting. Something similar to what is seen in the design and cutting of inlaid and mosaic wood. Or even things like; Cutting on soft and semi-hard parts such as wood, MDF or various types of aluminum and plastic are other applications of this laser cutting machine.
Therefore, due to the range of efficiency and performance of this device and due to the remarkable features of this technology, all furniture manufacturers to door manufacturers or even decorators and manufacturers of exhibition structures and cabinet makers are among the users of this technology.
Other users of this technology are carpenters who can present the desired design to this machine by computer and then proceed to cut wood or furniture by presenting a pattern or design in different sizes. Even cutting stone through this machine is another function of this technology.
