Laser Cut Metal Services – Steel Profiling/Cutting
About laser cutting
Laser cutting is to cut different materials especially steel metals with the help of laser beam. It is majorly used for industrial manufacturing applications, profiling metal connections for different equipment and structural parts. But now a day’s it also has been used for different purposes, such as wall art decoration, urban construction, auto-mobile manufacturing etc.
Why Laser cutting is getting popular in steel and metal cutting processes? Most is because of the reasons below.
High precision (up to +/- 0.05mm)
Rigorous cutting edge
Highly processing speed
Excellent cut quality
Auto and manually profiling options
CNC technology in
More material types
Octal provide metal laser cutting services, which means we can cut steel plate, metal sheet as customized to different panels, screens, wall art etc. And before you are ordering this service, there are several things you need to know about laser cut metal technology.
Laser Cut Metal Material Types
What kind of material could be processed by laser cutting technology?
Yes, mostly laser cutting is used to cut mild steel (carbon and alloy steel) aluminum, stainless steel plates, metal sheets and other substances. We are listing steel material standard and grades for laser cutting so you can to decide what materials you prefer.
Laser cutting method is best suited for cutting mild steel plate which has a thickness up to 1.25 inch (36 mm). After one inch, the cutting process will become difficulty and it need to be perfectly set which requires to configure each thing correctly. Like installing the material, checking the nozzle condition, beam quality, and gas purity. We know how to use laser technology to laser cut metal.
Laser cut metal tolerances
For different thickness of steels, different length and width tolerances standard will be applied, and normally as below:
• Steel thickness under 1.0mm, tolerances is +/- 0.12 mm.
• From 1.0 mm to 3.0 mm, tolerances allowed +/- 0.15 mm.
• From 3.0 mm to 6.0 mm, +/- 0.20 mm.
• 6.0 mm to 15.0 mm, laser cutting tolerances at +/- 0.25 mm.
• Up 15.0 mm to 20.0 mm, laser cut tolerances at +/- 0.75 mm.
Why laser cutting keeps material with precisely sizes
It’s not a fast process, especially on the mild steel, it looks like a burning process in which the extreme heat of the beam is used rather than the preheat flame. In this case, the speed is mainly maintained by keeping a check on the reaction of iron and oxygen. The precision of the laser cut metal is excellent. It creates a very tiny kerf width which helps in cutting even the precise contours as well as the small holes. With laser cutting, the edge quality is outstanding, with perfectly square edges and no or very little trash.
