Laser Tube Cutting

Metal Laser Tube Cutting | Solid-state and CO2 lasers | Durable & Robust

Metal tubes laser cutting | Tubes and profiles are used in many applications, from mechanical engineering and system construction through to the furniture industry.  More and more designers are taking advantage of the benefits of laser-cut tubes and profiles and are therefore considerably increasing demand, thanks to the new design possibilities.

Solid-Sate Lasers

Solid-state lasers enable you to cut quickly, in particular when cutting thin sheet. This is made possible by their emitted radiation, which has a wavelength of around 1.03 μm. This means the energy is absorbed more intensely by the material than with a CO2 laser, which has a wavelength of 10.6 μm. The laser thus applies more energy to the sheet metal, which enables faster cutting.

CO2 lasers

CO2 lasers are durable, and robust industrial solutions. For the most part they do not need reworking due to their cutting edges being such a high quality: the 10.6 μm wavelength produces burr-free edges which have very low surface roughness and are immediately ready for further processing.
