  • When Should You Use Laser Cutting in Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication?
    With any custom sheet metal fabrication project, there are a variety of machines that can be used to accomplish the same design. Laser cutting is just one of many pieces of sheet metal equipment that is used to remove material from a flat piece of sheet metal. While each machine has its benefits
  • Application Newsletter - Laser Marking Glass with a Co2 Laser, the SBM 1200M
    1200M is ideal for glass applications. The SBM 1200M features: Sealed CO2 laser from 50 to 500 watt. Ease of installation allows for quick startup and material processingHandles continuous roll and standard sheet size stock. Ideal for small machine shops and sheet metal fabricators. Extra-large
  • Fiber Laser Welding of 100µm Thick Stainless Steel
    Since the start of the laser industry high power CO2 lasers have been used for welding sheet steel and a great deal of information is available on this subject. However, welding very thin steel sheets is a very challenging application as a much greater degree of control is required to avoid over
  • Application Newsletter - Laser Cutting Natural Leather
    Blue leather with 3-mm thickness was marked and cut by a 10 watt CW CO2 laser with 3.75-inch focal length lens. The speed of 50 mm/sec was used for etching surface with one pass and the speed of 10 mm/sec was set for cutting through the sheet with three passes. Total cycle time for cutting
  • Combining 2-D and 3-D Laser Applications
    . A typical job shop with laser cutting equipment processes either 4- by 8-foot or 5- by 10-ft. sheets of mild steel, stainless, and aluminum. Thicknesses are from 20 gauge to 0.5 inch, depending on the resonator 's beam output. The operator seeks to improve both productivity and profits
  • Success Stories: Job Shop - From the Anvil to the Laser
    hand-operated shears to cut them. Today, Mr. Hevia smiles when he thinks about the considerable changes that he has witnessed throughout his life. But whenever he sees the laser tube cutting systems that have been installed in his workshops he is still amazed: "laser cutting has always been
  • Combination of Sensing Techniques Checks Laser Weld Quality
    faults with significantly better accuracy. Dave Farson, assistant professor of industrial, welding, and systems engineering, explained that manufacturers employ high-power laser welding to join thick sheet metal parts for automobiles and airplanes. Airplane manufacturers can afford to invest time
  • Laser Spot Welding of Copper to Stainless Steel
    Copper is typically the most challenging material to laser weld, welding it to a less expensive dissimilar material such as steel is doubly challenging. This work was done to demonstrate the capability of the fiber laser in this novel material combination. Due to the challenges of welding copper
