Fiber lasers are ideal for highly reflective metals such as brass. The most common fabrication methods are water jet cutting and stamping. Fiber lasers provide precision, accuracy and consistency, and are a direct replacement for these conventional technologies.
Aluminum is widely used in metal fabrication but not exclusively cut by lasers. Aluminum is extremely reflective to conventional CO2 laser technology. Fiber lasers are the answer.
Stainless steel is fabricated across almost every industry. Conventional methods include CO2 laser cutting, plasma, water jet, sheering, punching and stamping. Cutting with a Fiber laser can eliminate almost every other method.
Mild steel is one of the most used metals in fabrication and commonly cut by lasers. Fiber laser technology allows fabricators to cut with almost half the power.
Until now copper has rarely been cut by a laser. This is due to copper being highly reflective to the wavelength of CO2 lasers. Fiber lasers are the answer.
