Laser cutting machines
Our portfolio contains the ideal machine to meet any requirement, regardless of the type of sheet metal you need to process. We provide targeted advice when choosing between CO2 and solid-state lasers and will be glad to find the best, most cost-effective solution for you. Your application is the key factor determining which machine is the right one for you. However, we don't just look at the cutting time: we also strive to optimize upstream and downstream laser cutting processes. We act as a one-stop shop for you in this regard, supplying the machine, laser, automation, and software, as well as peace of mind as a result of our large, international service network.
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 cut edge quality is so high that for the most part they do not need rework. The 10.6 μm wavelength produces burr-free edges which have very low surface roughness and are immediately ready for further processing.
