CO2 Laser Cutting introduce

      CO2 laser cutting is a process whereby materials are cut using a focused, high energy beam of light generated by a carbon dioxide laser. The laser beam is focused into a very precise spot on the material to be cut, and the heat generated forms a small, localized melt point through the entire thickness of the material. Many CO2 laser cutting machines employ a gas assist system which focuses a high speed stream of inert gas onto the cut point to clear the cut of melted material. Most laser cutters are automated and advance the cut by either moving the cutting head or the material to follow the cut profile. CO2 laser cutting is used for a wide range of materials and is characterized by high cutting speeds and extreme cut precision levels.
      Laser cutting offers operators a highly accurate method of cutting complex shapes from a wide variety of materials. Lasers can be focused to extremely fine points and have enough energy to cut through thick metals with ease.Computer aided design (CAD) and computer numerical control (CNC) technology allows complex designs to be made by automated CO2 laser cutting machine quickly and with great accuracy. The list of materials suited to laser cutting is diverse and includes wood, acrylic, paper, leather, fabric, cloth plastics, metals, wood, rubber and as well as many other nonmetal materials.
