Concept Laser Co provides laser cutting in Melbourne
You might be wondering, what is laser cutting? Well it is a process which uses a powerful laser to cut, engrave and/or mark many fine and precise applications.
Laser cutting technology works by directing a high powered laser beam onto your chosen material and heats it up so strongly and rapidly that it melts, burns or vaporises away, leaving a cut out, engraved or marked shape that was specified. The laser is told where to go and what to do by a vector file that has been sent to the machine via software. Within the file, cut lines are generally specified as red, and engraving or marking is generally black or blue. When cutting, the laser will follow the red cut line specified in the file and continue to separate or vaporise the material as it goes. The beam from the laser is thin, around 0.1mm allowing for incredibly precise and detailed cuts. Laser cutting is a fantastic method of production, due to the speed of the machine and the low cost of production, it allows for one off designs to be made at relatively low costs as well as rapid prototyping and the production of large quantities of products.
Here at Concept Laser Co the range of applications our laser machines are capable of are endless, depending on your needs, industry and requirements we are sure we will be able to help you out!
