Laser cutting is now more effective and easier than ever before. Due to their compact design and high degree of flexibility, the ACSYS laser cutting centers are in a class of their own and are setting new benchmarks. Automatic distance control and highly dynamic linear motors guarantee extremely precise machining results in minimum time for sheet metal sizes up to 1250 x 1250 mm². Additionally, a software-controlled dividing head as a fourth rotary axis and a manually adjustable fifth axis can be used for interpolated laser cutting. This allows round parts to be machined.
Whether the task is to machine inlays, templates or high-precision cut parts in a wide range of different industries - with our laser cutting systems and the AC-LASER Software Suite, our customers will always be a step ahead of the competition.
Laser cutting is a thermal separating process, which creates complex geometries using a focused laser beam. Laser cutting is able to process different metals, plastics, organic materials and other materials.
In principle, there are three laser cutting processes, which are distinguished by the inert gas that is used for cutting and is introduced into the separating joint in axial direction to the focused laser beam.
Laser burn cutting
Oxygen is used as the cutting gas for laser burn cutting. During the separation process, the oxygen introduces additional heat into the workpiece due to the localized oxidation of the basic material in the cutting joint, thereby accelerating the cutting process.
Laser burn cutting is ideally suited for manufacturing parts quickly and efficiently, whose visual appearance will continue to change due to subsequent surface finishing processes.
Laser fusion cutting
Laser fusion cutting has the advantage of producing a virtually oxide-free cutting edge. The cutting gas is an inert gas. Inert gas blows the molten material out of the separating joint and cools the cutting edge.
Laser fusion cutting is used if workpieces must fulfill high visual requirements without further processing. If subsequent alterations of the material are unwanted, then hygiene and laboratory engineering aspects must also be taken into consideration.
Laser-remote-cutting (sublimation cutting) is the laser cutting of very thin and sensitive materials, which are cut without the use of cutting gases.
This means that the laser alone evaporates the material, thereby removing the material layer by layer and creating a very thin cutting gap. This process offers unique solutions for processing a wide range of very different composite materials.
