3D Laser Cutting
3d laser cutting, also known as Five-axis laser cutting, is the process used to cut through materials and components across three dimensions, allowing the fabrication of complex parts with speed and most importantly, accuracy.
3D Laser Cutting FAQs
3D laser cutting gives you the ability to cut not only 2D components but also 3D components from raw materials in a process that is quick, accurate and efficient.
The use of 3D laser cutting eliminates the need for physical cutting tools, therefore it reduces the amount of time spent manufacturing these tools, thus saving you money.
3D laser cutting is something that is used in a wide range of industries. The industries that historically make the best use of 3D laser cutting are automotive and aerospace.
3D laser cutting, also known as five-axis laser cutting, is used for production, low volume and prototype work. Offering the flexibility to not only cut complicated profiles from within a fully formed part but also profiles from a flat sheet or material.
3D Laser cutting offers many different benefits to companies in industries such as the automotive, aerospace, lighting and prototyping. Some of these benefits are:
- The ability to cut through components across three dimensions
- The ability to cut a variety of materials including, mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, Perspex and wood
Five-axis laser cutting, also known as 3D laser cutting, is used for production, low volume prototype work and offers the flexibility to not only cut complicated profiles from within a fully formed part, but also profiles from a flat sheet of material. The five-axis machine has the ability to cut a wide variety of materials, the most obvious being mild steel, aluminium and stainless steel; but it can also process materials such as titanium, Perspex and wood.
Following on, there are many advantages five-axis laser cutting offers over conventional press tools, particularly with low volume components. Its ability to trim complicated shapes which in previous years may have required many complicated and expensive tools; even its ability to fit into an existing process if a current tool becomes damaged, could prove to be the difference between being able to supply parts. Also, due to its clean accurate cut, the use of press tooling to trim and pierce parts becomes unnecessary, saving both time and money for low volume production.
