Laser tube cutting machines
Tubes and profiles are used in many applications, from mechanical engineering and system construction through to the furniture industry. Lasers have opened up new design possibilities, so more and more designers are taking advantage of the benefits of laser-cut tubes and profiles and are therefore considerably increasing demand. Discover the comprehensive solutions for laser tube cutting and learn all about what the TruLaser Tube machines can do.
Solid-state lasers enable you to cut quickly, in particular when cutting thin sheet. This is made possible by their emitted radiation, which has a wavelength of around 1.03 μm. This means the energy is absorbed more intensely by the material than with a CO2 laser, which has a wavelength of 10.6 μm. The laser thus applies more energy to the sheet metal, which enables faster cutting.
CO2 lasers are tried-and-tested industrial lasers, durable, and robust. Their cutting edges are of such high quality that for the most part they do not need reworking: the 10.6 μm wavelength produces burr-free edges which have very low surface roughness and are immediately ready for further processing.
