Moving into the future means adopting some of the newest and most beneficial technologies of our time. For print service providers today, this means adopting new laser cutting processes, which offer a broad range of exciting benefits that we are only beginning to explore. A non-contact process, this technology can make the most precise cuts without damaging the surrounding materials. It works with a variety of materials and can finish jobs with minimal cost or effort.
Take a look below to understand all of the unique benefits of laser cutters and how they might benefit you.
Accurate and Efficient
The laser’s beam is about the width of a pinhead, which means it can achieve the highest degree of precision with each and every cut. Evaporating material as it goes, it shapes the material without ever coming into direct contact with it, which means users will not have to worry about their project shifting or lifting during the cutting process.
A Material of Your Choice
Modern laser cutters today have one major benefit that traditional cutting processes have a hard time competing with: they work with a broad range of materials without sacrificing time or effort. These high-tech cutters work with wood, paper, acrylics, fabric, and thick matte board, to name some of the more common applications. The highest level of precision is maintained throughout each material, offering the user the maximum degree of customization and control.
A Variety of Applications
Laser cutters are great at reducing complex, multi-step jobs into a single swift motion by combining different applications into a single process. They can engrave and cut on the same project at the same time, simplifying and streamlining the entire process. It is an entirely digital process, which means that it doesn’t require the use of stencils and is perfect for working with delicate types of materials.
Easy to Use
Without blades to be sharpened and relatively few moving parts to keep working, modern laser cutters require minimal maintenance, which is one of the top factors for their recent popularity. Keeping the lens clean on a regular basis and removing unwanted debris from the work site is all it takes to keep these machines working. Best of all, they don’t require special training to operate, as they are fully automated.
