When you need to reproduce or alter the dimensions of a piece that’s already been made, the best place to start is with the piece itself. Empower your workers to work better, faster, and more efficiently.
The narrowest part of the focused beam is generally less than 0.0125 inches (0.32 mm) in diameter. Depending upon material thickness, kerf widths as small as 0.004 inches (0.10 mm) are possible. In order to be able to start cutting from somewhere other than the edge, a pierce is done before every cut.
Laser cutting can produce extremely small cuts (down to 0.011”) at tolerances of +/- 0.002”. The team at Union Machine has worked with businesses in sectors such as aerospace, mining, construction, medical, energy, and other industries that require close tolerances, complex geometries, or precision cutting. In lieu of servo control axes, the stages can be controlled manually if off-axis processing is not required. The YZ stage is ball screw driven incorporating brushless servo motors with accuracies of +/- 5 microns for the Y axis and +/- 20 micron for the Z axis. The programmable Y and Z axis motion produces parallel wall features while off axis cutting. The tube periphery cutting is controlled by a linear motor X axis and a brushless direct drive servo motor for the rotary axis.
CNC laser cutting machines achieve the highest precision and quality in the non-contact cutting of steel, stainless steel and aluminium. Complex shapes can be produced effortlessly thanks to their high laser power. Therefore, laser systems are displacing conventional punching and nibbling machines from many areas of application. In addition to the widespread CO2 laser, solid-state lasers, fiber lasers, YAG lasers and other systems are also available.
Laser machining can help your business explore a whole new dimension of faster, more productive operation—even when working with highly complex designs or tough materials. We introduced our first commercial laser cutting machine in 1977. “We have some expensive laser cutting equipment,” says David Terry, an engineering and projects manager at Tru-Form Steel and Wire, Inc. , who explains how their company learned this the hard way. Dust collector sizing for laser cutting is often poorly understood, especially when it comes to newer fiber cutting machines. Older rules of thumb for CO2 lasers do not necessarily translate to newer machines. Many shops making the switch from CO2 to fiber often assume their existing dust collector can be hooked up to the new machine, but this can be a costly mistake.
Even though it cannot work on metal or glass, it is suitable for anything else that can be carved. So, the next time you want to customize your mobile phone case, this is the machine you should use. It is a powerful machine that is cooled down by a fan that runs for a maximum of 15,000rmp. Unlike other engraving machines that require Wi-Fi to connect to a PC, this product will make do with Wi-Fi. In other words, it does not require an internet connection to link up with a PC.
