Steel Laser Cutting

Steel Laser Cutting is a type of metal fabrication process that involves the use of a high-powered laser beam to precisely cut, engrave, or mark steel materials. This innovative technique of cutting steel components is highly efficient and can provide exceptional precision. This method is often used in various industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, construction, and metalworking.

  1. Select the appropriate type of steel to be used based on the project requirements. It can be either stainless steel, mild steel, or any other type of steel.
  2. A Computer-Aided Design (CAD) file is created and uploaded to the laser cutting system. This CAD file usually contains the design or pattern that specifies the desired shapes and dimensions for the steel components.
  3. The steel material is placed on the cutting bed of the laser cutting machine. The operator should ensure that the laser machine’s parameters are configured based on the specific type, thickness, and the requirements of the CAD design. Make sure to select the appropriate laser source and set the laser’s power and speed correctly.
  4. The laser beam should be focused on the surface of the steel using a focusing lens which ensures that the laser beam is concentrated to a small, high-energy point of contact on the steel surface.Quality Laser Cutting at Lotus Steel Sydney
  5. An assist gas, typically nitrogen or oxygen, is used to blow away the molten or vaporized material from the cutting path. Which gas to be used depends on the type of steel and the desired cut quality. Oxygen is often used for cutting carbon steel, while nitrogen is preferred for stainless steel.
  6. The high-powered laser beam is directed onto the steel surface. It will melt or vaporise the material at the point of contact. The laser follows the cutting path specified in the CAD design file. Then the assist gas interacts with the material. This will enhance the cutting process.
  7. After the cutting process, the steel components are subjected to quality inspections. During the inspection, components are checked for burrs, dross (resolidified metal), edge quality, and dimensional accuracy.
