Waterjet, Oxycut, Plasma or Laser, Which Cutting Technology Should I Use?
There is significant competition in the market between different cutting technologies, whether they are intended for sheet metal, tubes or profiles. There are those that use methods of mechanical cutting by abrasion and others that prefer thermal methods.
Why Laser Technology Is a Good Automation Tool for Traceability
Automating the traceability process is essential for manufacturers who want to avoid production bottlenecks, reduce production costs, and improve the marking quality to meet OEM traceability requirements.
What is Zero-Width Laser Cutting Technology?
The process splits materials at the molecular level under a non-contact process with tremendous speed resulting in no material loss, chips, lateral cracks, protrusions, hooks, and flares, or any other forms of contaminants.
All you need to know about diode lasers and laser diodes
While a laser diode generates photons (light) it create a lot of heat as well, so that heat has to be distributed and that is why there are not so many powerful laser diodes on the market.
15W Laser Engraver Review
There is a large number of different cheap laser engravers out there that are a great way to get into laser engraving on a budget.
How to convert a 3D Printer to a Laser Cutter
You can not only use your 3d printer for printing, but it is also an XYZ motion platform. By attaching a laser to the extruder, for example, you can easily convert your 3d printer to a laser engraver or even cutter.
Diode Laser on your 3D Printer, Perfect Tool for Makers?
3D printers are amazing for makers everywhere, as they enable easy, cheap, and fast progress on projects. They can't do everything though, especially if you want a different material from plastic, you're for the most part out of luck.
The Benefits of Laser Cutting to the Design for Manufacturing Process
In terms of design for manufacturing, laser-cutting technology can have a beneficial effect on any product. Cost and quality are two major influences on the marketability of any product, and laser cutting allows for high-quality components at a lower cost overall, therefore making it possible to offer a more affordable, better quality product.
