Laser die cutting is a highly technical process that uses a laser to cut materials into various pre-designed forms. It is mostly used for industrial manufacturing applications, but can also be used by small businesses or hobbyists to create all manner of objects.
How does the laser cutting process work?
A laser die cut operates by directing the output of a high-power laser beam to the material requiring cutting via a computer which has had the product’s pre-set CAD generated design and dimensions inputted beforehand.
The material – whether a sheet metal material, wood or plastic – is then either melted, burned or vapourized,which then leaves the product with a high quality surface finish and cut. Laser cutting is suitable for projects which require extreme accuracy and uniformity of production. They are also ideal for fast production schedule turn-arounds and one-off items… perfect for Die-making !
