Laser cutting is a technology that has been revolutionizing the manufacturing industry in recent years. With laser cutting, manufacturers can create intricate and precise cuts in materials like metal, plastic, and wood, with minimal waste and maximum efficiency. However, with so many different types of laser cutters available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for your needs. In this post, we will explore the different laser-cutting technologies and explain why AMS’s CNC lasers are the best choice for metal fabrication.
There are several different types of laser cutting technologies available, including CO2, fiber, and Nd:YAG lasers. CO2 lasers are the most common type of laser cutting technology and are ideal for cutting non-metallic materials such as wood and acrylic. Fiber lasers, on the other hand, are better suited for cutting metals like aluminum and steel. Nd:YAG lasers are less commonly used and are typically used for specialized applications, such as cutting jewelry.
While each of these laser-cutting technologies has its advantages and disadvantages, AMS’s CNC laser-cutting technology is the best choice for precision metal fabrication. With Amada CNC laser cutting machines, AMS provides innovative technology for maximum efficiency, productivity, and quality metal fabrication.
CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control, and it’s a type of automation technology that uses a computer program to control the operation of machines. This technology is used in manufacturing, including CNC machines, to create precise and accurate cuts in materials. CNC technology makes manufacturing more precise, consistent, and efficient and is widely used in many industries.
Amada CNC laser cutting machines are considered to be some of the best equipment in the metal fabrication industry due to their innovative technology and advanced features, which provide several advantages over other types of laser cutting machines.
One of the most significant advantages of AMS’s CNC laser cutting technology is the minimal deburring required after the cutting process, which saves time and money on post-processing. With traditional cutting methods like sawing or punching, the edges of the cut material can become jagged, requiring extensive deburring and finishing to achieve a smooth edge.
Our machines have a high-speed shuttle table that allows for fast material changes, reducing downtime between cuts. This enhances efficiency by cooling the material and preventing distortion during cutting. Our machines also have SFP (splatter-free piercing) capability, which reduces the need for deburring and finishing, saving time and money.
Another advantage of our technology is its ability to cut a wide range of materials, including cold rolled steel (CRS), hot rolled steel (HRS), stainless steel (SS), aluminum, and copper, up to 3/4″ thickness. This versatility makes it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications, from metal fabrication to industrial manufacturing.
Amada CNC laser cutting machines are highly reliable and require minimal maintenance. They are considered to be the best equipment for metal fabrication due to their versatility, advanced features, and high reliability.
