Metal laser services: tips & tricks
Overview of challenging and difficult to laser-cut materials
Not all materials are as suitable for laser cutting as plywood and steel. Over the years, Raytech built an extensive parameter list for laser cutting challenging & difficult materials.
Laser hole drilling
For applications where a large amount of holes is required, laser drilling can provide an excellent solution. Holes and perforations are drilled without cutting a contour. This allows to drill a large amount of perforations with high precision.
Laser engraving or laser marking?
Objects can be identified or personalized by adding a text, logo or image. An engraving or marking can easily be applied by means of laser light. But where exactly does laser engraving differs from laser marking?
Is the required tolerance feasible or not?
Achieving high accuracy with laser cutting technologies is certainly possible, but several factors factors must be taken into account: material thickness, type of cutting gas, material properties, type of laser source, machine parameters, etc.
Laser welding advantages and limitations
Laser welding is a welding technique that uses laser light to melt material together. When to choose for laser welding and when to decide to look for other welding techniques? Overview of advantages and limitations of laser welding technology:
Mass produced tubular components?
Raytech offers tube component manufacturing on high-speed laser machinery. In order to produce large series in an economic and competitive way, Raytech developed several tube laser machines.
Identification and personalisation
Overview of laser marking applications and materials. Marking images, logo’s, barcodes, texts on various materials by using fiber laser light. Possibility to obtain different color shades.
Introduction to high speed laser cutting
High speed laser cutting or high acceleration laser cutting?
Although cutting speed and acceleration are important factors in the total production time per part, both parameters differ from each other.
