Can a Fiber Laser cut plastic
Fiber laser cutting machines are increasingly used in various industries because it provides a cost-effective solution for many processes and has some unique features. As we all know, fiber laser cutting machine is also called metal laser cutting machine because it is mainly used to cut various metals, including stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, copper, brass, etc. So, can a fiber laser cut plastic? In this article, we will introduce the types of laser cutting machines and the processing ranges they correspond to.
Can Fiber Laser Cut Plastic?
For safety reasons, we do not recommend using fiber lasers to cut plastic or other non-metallic materials. Because non-metallic materials have short wavelengths and uncontrolled absorption of the laser beam, this can cause fires.
An effective device for cutting plastics is a CO2 laser cutting machine, which can engrave and cut any non-metallic material. Including cutting wood to make toy models, cutting fabrics to make clothes, cutting acrylic to make advertising signs, etc. Of course, CO2 laser cutters can also engrave glass.
Wood and acrylic are the most common CO2 laser cutting materials, so CO2 laser cutting machines are widely used in the furniture industry and advertising industry. It is common for beginners and even professionals to use a laser cutter to cut wood to assemble, engrave gifts, and create intricate patterns into a piece of wood. When you cut acrylic with a laser cutter, you can create some truly stunning artwork. Acrylic material is ideal for making signs, jewelry, decorations, wall art, and more.
Once you've got some practice with other laser cutting materials, you might want to try leather. It's an expensive material, but the results look great. You can make wallets, belts, purses and artwork. Laser cutting textiles is a newer option. Cutting fabric with a laser cutter is a form of digital embroidery that allows you to get the results you want in less time.
Fiber laser cutters are effective tools for metal fabrication projects. It is suitable for stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel, iron plate, galvanized iron, aluminum plate, copper plate, brass plate, bronze plate, gold plate, silver plate, titanium plate, metal plate, etc. Fiber laser cutters are precise, with small groove widths and small heating zones, enabling metal cutting professionals to cut exactly the parts they want.
In the field of metal cutting, fiber laser machines have irreplaceable advantages. Youben mechanical fiber laser cutting machine adopts RAYCUS/IPG laser source with international advanced laser technology. Equipped with Swiss Raytools brand autofocus cutting head, high-speed perforation and cutting of various material thicknesses, its processing range can cover almost all sheet metal parts.
Laser cutting machine are popular with users for their versatility. Different laser devices have their own application areas. Choosing the right laser machine for your workshop is the key to increasing productivity.
