Why invest in Laser Cutting?
Laser cutting is a slitting process in which metallic and non-metallic raw materials with different material thicknesses can be cut. This process relies on a laser beam that is directed, shaped, and combined. When laser beams hit the workpiece, the material becomes hot enough to melt or evaporate.
In this process, all laser power is concentrated in a spot, usually less than half a millimeter in diameter. If more heat is supplied to this area than is dissipated by heat conduction, the laser beam will fully penetrate the material. Other processes involve applying enormously powerful large-scale tools to sheet metal, while the laser beam completes its task without any contact. In this way, there will be no wear and no deformation or damage to the workpiece.
Laser cutting; depending on the material, thickness, size, placement, etc. can increase the production capacity of companies by more than 60% depending on the These automation systems have a significant impact on the production economy and will continue to increase in the coming years.
The range of materials that can be laser cut is quite wide!
All common materials in industrial machining – from steel to aluminum, stainless steel, and non-ferrous metal sheets, to non-metallic materials such as plastic, glass, wood, or ceramics – can be laser cut safely and with high quality. Many different sheet thicknesses of 0.5 to 30 millimeters can be cut using the tool. This extremely wide range of materials makes the laser the best cutting tool for many applications in metals and non-metals.
Investing in laser automation has many outstanding benefits. Incorporating smart laser automation into your metal fabrication departments means investing in savings as well as leveraging technology to intelligently streamline many of your factory’s functions.
As Aktif Lazer, it offers special solutions for very specific laser automation requirements. The demand for high-power laser cutting processes in larger formats and with automation systems is constantly increasing. These more efficient systems mean maximum productivity and profitability for customers. Some benefits of laser cutting for companies:
Progress with lower labor cost.
One of the many benefits of automation is lowering manual labor costs. Within metal fabrication departments, laser automation has led to increased labor productivity as fewer workers are needed to produce the same number of manufactured goods. Depending on the level of automation, it will significantly reduce the labor cost from material handling to inspection, inspection to inspection.
- Mass production takes place quickly.
The best part of automation is that mass production is easy with 0 errors. Products and parts are customized and mass production is carried out quickly. In other words, the aim is to produce higher quality products with fewer labor costs with higher customized products. That’s why we build a flexible laser cutting network for our customers.
- Lower raw material cost
Since the error rate is very low in laser cutting, there is almost no waste material at the end of production. These automatic systems, which increase consistency and reduce scrap formation rates, are reflected in all stages of the production process within the framework of sustainability.
- Higher accuracy, 0 errors
Laser automation systems are extremely precise, capable of intricate details and intricate work on sheet metals. It also gives precise results and can do a job over and over again.
- Maximum productivity
Laser cutting machines, which provide uninterrupted mass production capability and efficiency thanks to zero idle time and short transition time, can provide higher labor productivity by keeping safety at the highest level and can eliminate the risk of human error. The system provides a high level of reliability, high flexibility, and ease of use.
- Providing real-time data for cost reduction
All components in the machine are gathered on a common network so that their data can be easily accessed. We can eliminate idle time costs with predictive maintenance on our software-supported machines. In addition, data collection accuracy increases, and costs decrease. Such increased accuracy enables business executives to make better decisions.
As a result, laser cutting provides convenience to you in many stages of the production process. Calculating the ROI for an automated or manual system is important to understand which is right for your process. If you want to have operations such as laser cutting and bending of the press brake, all you have to do is to review the Aktif Lazer website and contact us.
