Across the metal industry, laser cutting has largely replaced mechanical cutting. Lasers have a small but intense heat-affected zone which allows them to cut through metal without sacrificing any precision or control.
Some of laser cutting's most important advantages that ultimately save the customer time and money are:
- Able to cut through a variety of metals
- Reduced contamination of workpiece
- Easier workholding
- Better precision
- Faster turnaround times
- Greater automation
- Reduced chance of distortion
What type of laser does Pesznecker Brothers use?
There are two basic types of lasers used in metal fabrication and cutting: The CO2 laser and the Fiber laser. At Pesznecker Brothers, we use the fiber laser because it is the best suited for a variety of cutting, boring, and engraving applications.
Our OPTIPLEX 4020 Fiber laser unit from the geniuses over at Mazak Corporation offers superior edge quality, more stable cut performance, and greater throughput for applications utilizing stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum, Hastelloy, Inconel, titanium, thin gage mild steel and other exotic metals. There is also no need for additional edge surface cleaning when painting mild steel cut with nitrogen.
