Laser cutting is a cost-effective way to manufacture without having to worry about the cost of setup and tooling. No matter the size of the project, SoFlo Machining can create high-precision laser cutting services with a fast turnaround rate.
What Is Laser Cutting?
Laser cutting is a thermal separation method that uses a highly focused stream of light to cut through materials. The intensity and precision of the laser melts or vaporizes the material on contact. Once the laser makes contact with the surface, the cutting process begins.
The laser follows the selected pattern and separates the material. Because the equipment doesn’t produce residual stresses, it can be used on most types of materials. Laser cutting services are an ideal option for nearly every industry. It offers several benefits over traditional cutting options.
Laser Cutting Advantages
Almost any industry can benefit from laser cutting services. It is commonly used in aerospace, automotive, electronics, and tool machining. Some advantages of trusting SoFlo Machining with your projects include:
Drill cutting, as opposed to laser cutting, requires the tools to come into direct contact with the materials. Over time, this can wear down the drill. Worn-down tools don’t cut as precisely and can damage or even ruin a project. Because laser cutting doesn’t require tools to make contact with the materials, SoFlo Machining can guarantee a clean job every time.
No matter the project, you deserve accurate results. Laser cutting allows the experts at SoFlo Machining to hyperfocus the beam to drill precise small holes. This is a huge advantage over traditional cutting. Having the ability to control the size of the cut produces consistent and repeatable results. SoFlo Machining uses Computer Numerical Control (CNC) methods, which produce zero defects with a quicker turnaround time.
Unlike more traditional drilling methods, laser cutting has the ability to cut and drill difficult materials. Conventional drilling often requires a number of specialty drills that can still produce subpar results. They run the risk of burrs and sharp edges because the bits can’t produce small enough holes. Due to the fact normal drills have to make contact with the materials, they are often too weak for sturdy materials like metals and too strong for delicate materials like glass. SoFlo Machining’s laser cutting services can expertly cut a variety of difficult materials.
Because the laser does not have to be manipulated by hand, it works much faster than conventional drills. The optical system configuration and cutting head movement define the speed of the drill. Our fast turnaround rate allows you to continue business as usual. We understand that completing projects on time is critical to customer satisfaction. Because laser drills are less physical, SoFlo Machining can customize and produce your project in a timely manner.
SoFlo Machining has a long history of being mindful of the environment. Because laser cutting is more precise than traditional means, they require less energy to operate and produce less waste. As we use only the best equipment available, our machinery is built to last. The increased lifespan means less frequent replacements. Long-lasting machinery means fewer parts end up in the landfill. Another environmental benefit is that since laser cutting doesn’t require lubricants, less pollution is produced.
More and more people and businesses are turning to laser cutting to complete their projects. One of the main reasons is that it is more cost-effective than conventional drilling. One of the major reasons SoFlo Machining is able to keep costs down is that our machinery is more energy efficient than the alternative. Also, traditional drilling produces tons of scrap materials that are costly and difficult to dispose of. Laser cutting, on the other hand, keeps material waste to a minimum.
