Flatbed laser cutting, also known as 2d laser cutting is the process used to cut through and create parts from sheet material. The sheet material is carefully loaded onto the machines table so as not to damage the finished face.
Flatbed Laser Cutting FAQ
The use of flatbed laser cutting eliminates the need for physical cutting tools, thus reducing the initial time and costs associated with manufacturing these tools.
As the cut profile is CNC controlled, changes to the required profile can be made with relative ease.
The industries historically making the best use of flatbed laser cutting would be the Automotive, Architectural, White goods and Yellow goods markets. Due to the flexibility with the process and the varied array of material we are able to cut we now find the exhibition, sign makers and even artists making greater use.
A typical flatbed laser cutting machine can handle large plates of up to dimensions of 3000mm long, 1500 wide and 25mm thick
Flatbed Laser Cutting is used for the cutting of sheet materials, whereas 3D laser cutting is used for the cutting of 3D objects.
The materials that can be flatbed laser cut not only include a complete range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as the various grades of mild steels, stainless steels, aluminium, brass and copper but also wood, Perspex and a range of plastics.
