Laser Cutting Machines

How to buy a laser cutting machine for your business

Laser cutting machinery makes precise cuts to metal, wood and plastic products. There are several models of laser cutting equipment to meet the demands of your industry.

Buying laser cutting machines involve looking at several features of the equipment. Take in to consideration the type of materials you will be laser cutting to find the necessary combination of features.

1. Metal: The laser cutting machinery must have metal grid work and a capacitive sensing height follower. Look for laser sizes in 100, 150, 200 and 400 watt.

2. Wood: The laser cutting machine must be powered by CO2. This burns away the wood fiber resulting in cutting taking place. Look for laser beams between 200 and 800 watts.

3. Plastic: Look for laser cutting equipment with a vector grid that will elevate the plastic in order to cut it accurately. It should have air assist as plastic flames when its cut. The laser beams will vary between 200 and 800 watts depending upon the thickness of the plastic you are laser cutting.
