Laser tube cutting machines
Tubes and profiles are used everywhere – from mechanical engineering and system construction all the way 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 thereby considerably increasing demand. Discover all-round solutions for the world of laser tube cutting and find out more about the TruLaser Tube machines.
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.
