Laser cutting of mild steel, 2D laser cutting, 3D laser

For low-alloyed steels in particular, oxygen is typically used as cutting gas. At the moment the maximal processable counter thickness for laser flame cutting of steel is approximately at 25 mm. Mild steel is the most frequently cut material in the industry. Thus e.g. gears, blinds, coverings or chain links of mild steel are cut using lasers.

Laser Cut Steel OSH Cut - OSH Cut Laser

Our fiber laser cuts steel up to 1/2" thick, leaving a clean edge and a dross-free surface that typically removes the need for post-operations for most applications. Laser cutting steel yields a superior edge finish compared to competing alternatives like plasma, and at a much lower cost compared to water-jet and CNC processes like milling.

An Engineer’s Guide to Laser Cutting > ENGINEERING

Laser fusion cutting involves melting material in a column and using a high-pressure stream of gas to shear the molten material away, leaving an open cut kerf. In contrast, ablative laser cutting removes material layer by layer using a pulsed laser—it’s like chiseling, only with light and on a microscopic scale.

Laser Cut Steel OSH Cut - OSH Cut Laser

Our laser produces clean, dross-free parts in most cases, but some parts can push the limits on what is possible even with a state-of-the-art fiber laser. The limiting factor affecting cut quality is usually heat - laser cutting thick steel requires a lot of energy and the steel heats significantly during the cut. If the part has a high density

Laser Cutting Sacramento CA Fiber Optic Microform

Laser cutting is well suited for mild steel (including pre-plated steels like galvanized steel), stainless steel, aluminum. Brass and copper can be handled by fiber optic laser cutting. Laser Cutting Considerations. Extremely small features may not cut well. A good rule of thumb is that no feature should be smaller than the thickness of the material.

Steel Composition and the Laser Cut Edge Quality - TWI

In this work, cut edge quality has been established for the CO 2 laser cutting of laser grade, mild and C-Mn steels of 6 and 12mm thickness. The influence of the plate composition on laser cut edge quality has been studied by measuring the edge surface roughness and squareness.

Something in the Air- Cincinnati Incorporated

Primarily processing stainless steel, more than 90% of the parts are cut on lasers. For this both nitrogen and air are utilized with about 1/3 of all cutting (both mild and stainless steels) relying on air as the assist gas. “Our main concern was the weld quality of the cut part.

A heat-affected zone (HAZ) is produced during laser cutting. A HAZ forms in metals when the temperature rises above the critical transformation point. In laser cutting, this is localized near the cutting zone. In carbon steel, the higher the hardenability, the greater the HAZ.

Laser Cutting Mild Steel, Stainless Steel and Aluminum

Our newly installed fiber laser allows us to handle mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum laser cutting in a wide variety of thicknesses. Our laser can cut sheets of mild steel with dimensions of up to 83 x 162 inches and, thanks to its high-powered fiber design, it can cut mild steel to a thickness of up to 1”, and up to 1.18” when cutting stainless steel and aluminum.

Does Laser Cutting Harden Mild Steel? - CR4 Discussion

Sep 10, 2011 · Mild steel will have low carbon, but carbon content will be finite, >0. This definitely will respond to rapid cooling that takes place from the very high localized temperatures ( anything above 723 deg sets phase transformation in steel ) achieved while laser cutting.

Nitrogen vs. OxygenWhich Should You Use to Cut Steel?

Traditionally, oxygen is most commonly used when cutting steels. Thin steel does not require a significant amount of power due to the burning process, which involves an exothermic reaction – a chemical reaction of oxygen-burning iron which releases excess energy through heat and light.

Selecting The Right Grade For Laser Cutting

Steels suitable for laser cutting need to have a thin, tightly adherent surface scale. The adherence of the scale, in particular, tends to have a major impact on the ability of a laser cutter to actually cut the steel. Experience has shown that steels with loose or flaked scale will generally stop the laser cutting process.
