Our previous article defined what laser cutting is and what the process entails. Our next series of articles will explore some of the advantages of using the precision CNC machining process of laser cutting.
Laser cutting is much more affordable than some other types of precision CNC machining processes because it does not require any custom tools or modifications to be effective. Operating costs are low and laser cutting tools typically require less maintenance since they are not subject to wearing out as quickly as other types of CNC machines.
Accuracy & Precision
Laser cutting is among the most accurate and precise of all CNC machining processes. It is often used in prototypes to production manufacturing and contract manufacturing projects that require close tolerance machining.
Laser cutting yields an extremely low amount of waste, especially when compared to other types of precision CNC machining processes. Machinists can better maximize material use when using laser cutting machines.
Our next article will discuss more advantages of using laser cutting in prototypes to production manufacturing and contract manufacturing projects.
