Cutting

Contactless cutting process for creating complex geometries.

Laser cutting is a thermal cutting process. It can be used to process almost all materials – whether metals, plastics or organic compounds. ACSYS laser cutting systems are used, for example, for the production of inlays and templates as well as for the production of high-precision cut components. Our systems are also capable of high-precision and fast interpolated laser cutting. There are generally three laser cutting processes. These differ in the additional gas that is introduced into the parting line axially to the focused laser beam.

Laser flame cutting

Oxygen is used as the cutting gas in laser flame cutting. The oxygen is blown in at pressures of up to 6 bar and oxidizes the base material in the kerf. This generates additional heat energy, which accelerates the cutting process even further. The laser flame cutting process is suitable for cutting thicker sheets or producing parts quickly and efficiently, the visual appearance of which can be altered by subsequent surface finishing.

Laser fusion cutting

Nitrogen or argon are used as reaction-inhibiting cutting gases for laser fusion cutting. The inert gases guarantee a virtually oxide-free cutting edge. They are forced into the kerf at pressures of up to 20 bar, blow out the molten metal and cool the cutting edge in the process. The laser fusion cutting process is therefore ideal for cutting thin sheets and for workpieces that have to meet high optical requirements without further processing.

Laser remote cutting

No cutting gases are used for remote laser cutting or sublimation cutting. The separation process is suitable for composite materials. The laser vaporizes these in layers, creating a fine cutting gap. The strengths of the process with ACSYS processing systems: We rely on fiber lasers in combination with a highly dynamic galvo scanner. This moves the laser beam and enables contour speeds of over 100 m/min – even with complex contours and high precision requirements. The laser-cut edges have low burrs and minimal roughness. This makes the process the ideal alternative to punching, the quality is impressive and there is no need for time-consuming production and regrinding of the punching tools.
