CO2 Laser Metal Cutting Machine

Modern technologies provide a new opportunity to cut and process various materials such as metals, plastic or wood using carbon dioxide (CO2) laser.

One can choose and regulate even the cutting thickness regulating the speed and the power of the laser beam in correspondence with the material processed. Apart from this advantage laser processing suggests the wide range of other ones, including CO2 laser engraving, etching and marking on Corian®, acrylic, wood, granite, marble, chrome and coated metals, what makes it possible to indent a pattern in different kinds of surfaces.

Such kind of operations is made on a very simple principle. All one has to do is to print the pattern needed to the laser with the help of special custom printer driver. 2-D laser engraving can be obtained in case of a full speed operation of laser systems. The quality of the pattern obtained on a surface depends on a resolution applied to the laser. As a rule usual resolution while engraving with the Kern Laser Engravers is 300 - 600 DPI (dots per inch). In general, the resolution, used in the process of laser engraving, ranges from 50dpi to 1200dpi.

The choice of the laser engraving speed depends on different factors including the material of the surface processed, the size of the pattern indented in the surface, the depth of engraving needed and the size of the laser used. One can have the laser engraving machine customized according to one's special needs.

Thanks to the special software for converting gray scale images into .tif files with the resolution mostly suitable for the material of the surface processed it is also possible to indent the laser etching photographs in the materials like mirror, glass, marble, wood or other. The best results are usually obtained with the photos with good contrast.

CO2 laser is also used to mark and etch metals like aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, chrome, brass, copper, nickel and tin and provides the semi-permanent mark in case one applies the water-based chemicals to coat the metal. Laser ablation provides a perfect removal of the anodized finish from the metal surface, suggesting the wide range of colors if needed.
