What are the types of laser cutting?


1. CO2 Laser Cutting:


Features:

CO2 laser cutting is a widely used process for cutting various materials. It utilizes a laser beam generated by CO2 gas and is suitable for metals, plastics, wood, and more. With its relatively long wavelength, CO2 laser can penetrate non-metallic materials, extending its application range.


Advantages:

One of the advantages of CO2 laser cutting is its rapid and efficient cutting speed. On production lines, it swiftly completes cutting tasks for large batches of parts, enhancing overall productivity. Additionally, as it doesn't directly contact the workpiece surface, tool wear is minimized, extending tool life.


Limitations:

Despite its broad applicability, CO2 laser cutting may have limitations on highly reflective materials or special metals. Additionally, it may not be ideal for certain non-metallic materials like glass or transparent plastics. The choice of cutting method should consider specific material characteristics.



2. Fiber Laser Cutting:


Features:
Fiber laser cutting employs fiber-optic laser technology primarily for cutting metal materials. It features flexible cutting through fiber optic laser transmission, allowing for high precision. This technology is applicable to various metal materials, including stainless steel and aluminum alloys.

Advantages:
Fiber laser cutting excels in high precision and efficiency. The use of fiber optics reduces energy loss, enhancing cutting efficiency. It is suitable for applications requiring precise cutting, such as manufacturing precision components. Moreover, fiber laser cutting performs exceptionally well on thin materials.

Limitations:
The limitations of fiber laser cutting mainly lie in its poor adaptability to non-metallic materials compared to CO2 laser cutting. For non-metal materials, its performance might not meet expectations. The choice between methods depends on specific material requirements and processing needs.


3. Pulsed Laser Cutting:


Features:
Pulsed laser cutting utilizes pulse laser technology and is suitable for cutting heat-sensitive materials. Intermittent pulses reduce the heat-affected zone, preserving workpiece surface quality.

Advantages:
Pulsed laser cutting excels in protecting heat-sensitive materials. It is suitable for scenarios where reducing the heat-affected zone is crucial, such as cutting small parts. Moreover, it minimizes workpiece deformation during cutting.

Limitations:
The limitation of pulsed laser cutting is its relatively slow cutting speed. Due to intermittent pulses, overall cutting efficiency is lower. Therefore, in scenarios emphasizing high efficiency, alternative laser cutting methods might be considered.

4. Nitrogen Laser Cutting:


Features:
Nitrogen laser cutting involves injecting nitrogen during cutting to reduce surface oxidation. Primarily used for high-quality cutting of metal, such as stainless steel. Nitrogen injection helps minimize oxidation reactions during cutting, improving cutting quality.

Advantages:
Nitrogen laser cutting offers a clearer cutting edge with minimal surface oxidation. This makes it particularly suitable for applications requiring high-quality cutting surfaces. Additionally, it exhibits good adaptability, applicable to various types of metal materials.

Limitations:
While nitrogen laser cutting excels in metal cutting, it may not be suitable for materials sensitive to nitrogen. The choice of cutting method should consider the material's characteristics and processing requirements.

5. YAG Laser Cutting:


Features:
YAG laser cutting utilizes solid-state laser materials and is suitable for cutting both metal and non-metal materials. It performs exceptionally well on highly reflective metals like copper or aluminum, thanks to its shorter wavelength.

Advantages:
One of the key advantages of YAG laser cutting is its ability to handle highly reflective metals effectively. Compared to other laser cutting technologies, YAG laser provides smoother cutting edges, suitable for high-quality cutting requirements. 

Limitations:
The limitation of YAG laser cutting lies in its relatively slow cutting speed, especially for thicker materials. In scenarios requiring high-efficiency cutting, other faster laser cutting technologies might be considered.
