What materials can the laser cutting machine cut

Apr 25,2023 | TOPTEK

Laser cutting machine is suitable for cutting materials:
(1) Carbon steel cutting:
Modern laser cutting systems can cut carbon steel plates close to the maximum thickness, and the kerf can be as narrow as about 0.1mm for thin plates. The heat affected zone of laser cutting low carbon steel is extremely small, and the cutting is flat, smooth and vertical. For high carbon steel, the edge quality of laser cutting is better than that of low carbon steel, but its heat affected zone is larger.
(2) Stainless steel cutting:
Laser cutting is easier to cut stainless steel sheets. Using high-power YAG laser cutting system, the maximum thickness of stainless steel can reach 4mm.

(3) Alloy steel plate cutting:
Most alloy steels can be laser cut with good edge quality. However, tool steel and hot work die steel with high tungsten content will have erosion and sticky slag during laser cutting.
(4) Aluminum and alloy plate cutting:
Aluminum cutting belongs to melting cutting, which uses auxiliary gas to blow away the molten material in the cutting area, so as to obtain better cutting surface quality. At present, the maximum thickness of cutting aluminum plate is 1.5mm.

(5) Cutting of other metal materials:
Copper is not suitable for laser cutting, it is cut very thin. Most titanium, titanium alloys and nickel alloys can be cut with a laser.
