Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The [laser optics] and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a C
Both high power CO2 lasers and fiber laser cutters are able to cut metals, but due to the wave length and beam quality, fiber laser cutters are widely used in different industries and more popular for metal cutting. Fiber laser cutter is able to cut various metals, including low carbon steels, stainless steels, galvanized sheets, as well as some high reflective metals, such as aluminum and Brass, etc.
