If you want to stand out with customers or clients then you should understand the benefits of laser cutting.

Within the past few years, businesses have launched which specialize in custom laser cutting operations. These specialists work with everything from metal to paper. Cutting paper with a laser is particular exciting because it allows very complex designs to be replicated exactly. Paper works as an excellent substrate and can be cutting with near perfect edges.

Until the past few years paper products have been cut by a hand with scissors or by a blade-based machine. Both of these methods have severe limitations. With hand cutting, the cut is only as good as the worker and machines quickly dull or lose alignment. Both of these methods often produce a less than perfect result. Unfortunately, a few decades ago before the commercialization of the laser these were the only options.

Another benefit is the relative speed of most commercial systems. Hand cutting detailed patterns can take hours or even days. Also, with hand cutting, mistakes are frequent and precision is often fair at best. Powerful lasers have the ability to cut the same pattern in often a few seconds. Furthermore their ability to replicate the same design is unmatched with conventional methods. The newest system can cut with precise down to a fraction of a millimeter with a perfect edge. This precision also enables layering of patterns or even mass production of paper products.

Here are a few list of the laser cutting designs:

 

Clear Acrylic – 3.0 mm. Top Quality: Engraves Beautifully. Why is clear acrylic the #1 choice of makers in 2016? Because of what it shows during the reaction to the laser  machine. The surface and the area of the said thermoplastic engraves a super nice and artistic frosty finish product that catches the light so wonderfully and also the edges will melt smoothly instead of  burning such as the wooden materials.

Amber Bamboo – 2.7 mm. Top Quality: Natural Honey Tone. Bamboo is said to be the super versatile. Makers will use it create designs for jewelry, electronics enclosures, tableware, conference badges, book covers, signage and also displays for sale purposes.

Birch Veneer – 5.2 mm. Top Quality: Thicker yet Economical. When you need thicker wood for your laser cutting projects, this is the top choice. Like its thinner companion, this birch is commonly used in making product for housings, drones, prototyping, clocks, furniture and also signage.

Black Acrylic – 3.0 mm. Top Quality: Classic Black. Black acrylic is a classic favorite. Why? Because engraving looks so good on this material. This frosty white kind of engraving contrasts creates a beautiful black design.

Typical custom laser cutting projects begins with a designer creating a digital image of a pattern. This design should be reviewed carefully to ensure that all regions of the pattern are connected and well supported so it will be structurally strong. Modern co2 laser cutter system can cut thick paper products and even textiles which give designers a wide range of substrates to choose.

For more detailed patterns thicker substrates are often recommended to prevent structural instability. Often, trial or sample cutting on a variety of substrates to a good way to judge if the laser cut design is strong enough to fulfill its purpose. To avoid these downfalls often choosing a manufacture’s professional pre-made design can ensure it is both pleasing and functionally strong.

Design using code.  Paul Krix who is a designer, creates intricate designs of his work that were pattern-based in nature which were manipulated through software in order to generate the final designs. Many designers who use laser machines are inspired by forms or patters found in nature, but there are few articulate organic influences from a scientific ways.  Paul Krix creates uniquely and artistically an individual personal laser cut for jewelry which was aesthetically being informed using programming based on algorithms that he discovered several years ago.  Later, Paul came across to the field of research about algorithms copying the chemical procedures and process of leaf formations as well as deciding to use it as his basis for the modelling system. visit her latest blog posted at http://awesomesaucebookclub.com/how-to-laser-cut-the-basics-of-cutting-with-a-laser-system/

The incredible, amazing Folding Ukulele which comes from the ‘maker of anything’ called Brian Chan. The ukulele was designed by Brian Chan who didn’t want a traditional ukulele, and so went about changing the basic shape to make it foldable for ease of portability.  Soprano and the supermini sizes of this kind are available anytime on Ponoko, either fully finished or in kit form. With the design being drafted already, Brian was able to get in touch with Josh, a Community Support trusted Manager, to make a prototype of his project through laser-cutting. As you can see, the design is pretty complex, consisting of multiple flat pieces that need to fit together perfectly to create not just a 3D object. visit their official website for more details.

Generative laser cut puzzle. This unusually intricate laser cutter design of a wooden puzzle through the Nervous System which was unique in a sense. It was then designed using the so-called generative technique in the form of processing—that is why every single piece is made uniquely and each puzzle was made in this manner would be somehow amazing and unique. If 2 or 10 puzzles were being made, no 2 pieces in every puzzle would be the same.

The said puzzle happens to be just an experiment for an upcoming potential product. I cannot wait to see what image and form they will include in it.

Robotic claw business card. Another top headline contender. My old favorite laser business card project was, of course, Meat Cards, thus robot claws will definitely outclass for a contact information jerky. The design continues to evolve, so be sure you check out the latest updates about instructions where you may able to find all of the needed information in order to build unique robotic claw for business card solely.

Ornamental laser cutting. This is a roundup post of several breathtaking ornamental forms of laser cut arts and designs covered by A laser cutter. My favorite of all is the topographic model cut in a form of a chunk of Mars. It is the sort of this thing which you could see in photographic or data form coming from the NASA; however, only digital fabrication can possibly make it more tangible.

Laser cutting is used to cut any number of items from a variety of materials, such as clock faces, jigsaw puzzles, metal tags, packaging, machinery parts and components, signs, leather upholstery pieces, patterns, and more.

According to Coherent, a company that manufactures laser cutting machines, laser cutting may:

“… Concentrate a greater amount of energy towards a small and well-defined identified spot. The heat energy result, created through the laser, will vaporize the  materials in it as a small-defined place and gas, and/or a mixture of different  gases, like CO2, Oxygen, nitrogen, or even helium is then used in blowing out the material that was being vaporized by the kerf. The energy of the beam is applied right away and directly to where it is really needed, minimizing the HAZ or the Heat Affected Zone.”

Laser cutting is a process where a laser beam is used to heat a piece to the point where it is precisely severed. According to Answers.com, laser machines include a high-powered laser and a computer to direct the laser beam onto the material to be cut. From there, the laser beam melts, vaporizes, or burns the material along the predetermined cut line, resulting in a precise, neatly cut edge.

Laser Cutting Applications

Laser cutting is used by manufacturers, small businesses, schools, and hobbyists alike. According to Coherent, common items suitable for laser machine include:

  1. Thicker non-metal materials– You’ll need a laser cutter with an average power of between 250 to 500 watts (up to 1500 watt peak power) to cut thicker non-metal materials such as thicker plastics and wood up to one inch thick. In general, lower power lasers will have to work harder to make the same cut. This reduces cutting speed and can result in excessive heat, chemical changes, or damage to the Heat Affected Zone.
  2. Thin and non-metal form of materials– Fabrics, most plastics, papers, polycarbonate,  mylar stencils, wood that up to.04 more inches, and thin acrylics can be cut with a 150 watt average power (450 watt peak power) laser.
  3. Metal materials– Metal materials generally require higher power lasers between 150 and 1,000 watts (up to 2500 watt peak power). Some thin metals (such as stainless steel or cold rolled steel) can be cut with 150 watt lasers when oxygen-assist gas is used.

When it comes to cutting metal, wood, glass, and other hard surfaces, it’s hard to imagine a beam of light being able to keep up with a spinning blade. A traditional beam of light would indeed have a tough time. That said, a concentrated laser beam makes cutting a breeze. for additional tips, learn more information at http://hackaday.com/2017/07/12/laser-cutting-orreries/

Advantages of Laser Cutting

Laser machine do not wear due to cutting, resulting in less strain on the cutting equipment. Laser cut edges are clean. In addition to cutting items, lasers can also cut small, highly detailed holes with good edge quality. Lasers has come of age and are proven to be a reliable, advantageous alternative to other cutting methods.

Finally, laser offers numerous advantages over other types of cutting. Not only can you cut a variety of materials such as paper, plastics, cardboard, leather, and metal, lasers are extremely precise. Once a pattern is programmed into a laser cutter, it will continue to cut an exact copies piece after piece.
