One of the most significant advantages of using a laser tube cutter is its versatility. The machine can be used to cut a wide variety of materials. The material that can be cut with a tube laser includes aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, titanium, etc. Although a CO2 or fiber laser would be more appropriate for cutting reflective materials, a tube laser can also be used for a wide variety of non-metals, including plastics, rubber, and ceramics.
Useful for other applications:
Because a tube laser cutter can process a wide range of materials, it can also be used for various other applications. The process requires very little finishing and can even produce parts with pre-beveled edges that expedite the welding process. Using a tube laser cutter can save time and money on fittings while eliminating headaches associated with manual cutting. Here are some of the benefits of a tube laser cutter:
The cutter can eliminate the need for tedious handwork:
A tube laser cutter can eliminate the need for tedious handwork when cutting tubes. Because setups completely laser-cut, it requires minimal set-up and processing. The edge is perfect because a tube laser cutter cuts a part without applying mechanical force. Furthermore, a tube laser can be used for welding work, as it can be pre-beveled for easy fitting. This saves both time and money for operations and reduces the number of headaches associated with manual fitting.
Cutter is more versatile and requires less finishing:
Compared to other cut materials, a tube laser cutter is more versatile and requires less finishing. It can be used to cut various materials and thicknesses of sheet metal. It can be used for various applications, such as making pipes and more. The finished workpieces are often of high quality and are suitable for welding. There is no need for additional processing to make tubular components. It will save you time and money as you can cut the part to exact specifications without the need for manual fitting.
Using a tube laser can save you money:
It can reduce inventory levels of semi-finished parts. Moreover, a tube laser can produce parts faster and with fewer steps. This means that a single step can result in lower costs and a better quality finished product. When a machine is used to produce parts, it can save you money on semi-finished products. The speed of the machine is important, as it helps minimize the need for rework.
