Who says that CO2 machines cannot cut metals ? Our LS1390MM has a gas delivery system and will cut mild and stainless steel as well as many non metallic products. This makes it perfect for education and businesses looking for a more versatile laser.
CO2 laser engraving and laser cutting machines are extremely popular due to their relatively low cost and incredible flexibility and accuracy. They are especially well suited to cutting and engraving a wide range of materials such as woods, plastics, leather, paper and card. However, they will not cut metals without a high power tube and gas delivery system such as that provided with our LS1390MM mixed metal / non metal cutting machine.
Although regular CO2 laser cutters will not cut metals, they are particularly well suited to engraving anodised, coated and powder coated metals. They will also engrave coated metals with the use of a ceramic marking compound which is brushed or sprayed onto the surface of the material prior to engraving. The laser machine burns this ceramic compound into the surface of the material and the excess compound is simply washed away.
CO2 laser engraving machines and laser cutter machines are extremely popular in education and industry alike due to their low running costs and price of spare parts. All of our CO2 filled glass laser tubes are water cooled, extremely durable and with a typical life expectancy of 18 months to 7 years. Unlike some other laser sources such as metal tubes, our glass CO2 tubes are inexpensive to buy and easy to fit when they finally need replacing.
Most of our UK CO2 machines are installed with 3 high quality mirrors and a single focussing lens. Although these components are classed as consumable items they rarely need replacing if they are cleaned regularly as part of a routine maintenance schedule.
All of our cabinet type machines are class 1 laser devices which means that the laser radiation is unable to escape the enclosure under normal operating conditions. Class 1 laser devices are the only laser devices recommended for use in laser cutters for schools and education industries, as specified by CLEAPSS and HM Health and Safety Executive. Class 4 devices where the laser beam can escape through open slots or the absence of suitable security switches are not allowed.
Our latest range of machines are fitted with the highest quality CE marked Allen Bradley Guardmaster non-contact safety switches.
Our larger industrial laser cutters, such as our flatbed laser cutters are categorised as class 4 laser devices and suitable safety precautions must be taken during operation, such as the wearing of laser safety glasses.
We offer realistic and impartial advice as to the practicalities and capabilities of each machine for particular applications.
