Main types of laser cutters

In the fabrication of sheet metal parts, manufacturers make use of three basic types of laser cutters: CO2 gas, crystal, and fiber.

Type of Laser Cutter Definition Advantages Disadvantages Suitable Process Materials
CO2 Laser Cutters Uses gas mixture to generate laser beam Versatile, can cut non-metallic materials, relatively inexpensive Not suitable for cutting thick metallic materials, lower cutting speeds Wood, plastics, acrylics
Crystal Laser Cutters Uses solid-state crystal to generate laser beam Highly precise, long lifespan, requires less maintenance More expensive than CO2 lasers, not suitable for cutting thick metallic materials Thin metallic materials such as stainless steel and aluminum
Fiber Laser Cutters Uses fiber optic cable to generate laser beam Extremely fast, can cut thick metallic materials with high precision, energy efficient More expensive than CO2 lasers, require higher level of maintenance, not as effective at cutting non-metallic materials Thick metallic materials such as steel, copper, and brass

How does laser cutting Work?

  1. Adjusting power: our workers will adjusts the power of the laser based on the material being cut and the thickness of the sheet.
  2. Preparing CAD drawing: A CAD drawing is then converted into a series of commands that the laser cutting machine can interpret.
  3. Preparing materials:  our workers will prepare the sheet material and  cut to size, and placed on the machine’s bed. The workpiece is clamped onto the bench, making sure that the orientation is straight and not slanted.
  4. Laser cutting: The laser emits light from a resonator, which is an airtight glass tube composed of two facing mirrors and filled with diode activated gases. The light is then emitted from the cutting head, which is focused onto a curved lens and into a single beam. The beam then cuts or scores the material according to the commands sent from the CAD drawing.
  5. Multiple cuts: Multiple parts can be cut from the same sheet and will run on the same program. This means that once the first cut is complete, the laser cutter can move on to the next part without any additional setup time, making it a very efficient method of cutting materials.

The kerf is the width of the laser beam, typically around 0.1-0.5 mm

The minimum distance between features on a part depends on the material thickness and the laser beam width. As a rule of thumb, the distance should be at least equal to the material thickness plus the kerf width.


As a rule of thumb, the detail size should be at least equal to the material thickness

The width should be at least equal to the material thickness plus the kerf width.

The depth should be less than the material thickness to avoid warping or bending of the material.

It is better to have a tolerance of at least +/- 0.1 mm to ensure a proper fit.

Laser Cutting Service FAQ

Below you will find the answers to the most common questions about the laser cutting process. 

Laser cutting is a manufacturing process that uses a high-powered laser beam to cut, engrave, or mark materials such as metal, plastic, wood, and glass. The laser beam is focused on the material, causing it to melt, burn, or vaporize, which creates a precise cut or pattern.

CNCs and 3D printers work by removing or adding material layer by layer, which can be a time-consuming process.

However,laser cutting also does not require physical contact with the material being cut, which eliminates the need for clamps or other fixtures that slow down the cutting process.

Laser cutting uses a highly focused beam of light to cut through materials, while waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive particles to cut through materials.

The cost of laser cutting can vary depending on a number of factors such as the material being cut, the thickness of the material, the complexity of the design, and the quantity of parts needed. Generally, laser cutting is more expensive than traditional cutting methods such as plasma cutting or waterjet cutting due to the precision and speed that it offers.

Laser cutting is a versatile manufacturing process that can produce high-quality and precise parts for a wide range of applications. Such as Sheet metal parts,Signage and logos,Gaskets and seals,Architectural models,Electronic components, medical parts and automotive parts.


Laser cutting is generally considered a fast process, especially compared to other traditional cutting methods such as sawing or milling. Its speed can vary depending on the material being cut and the power of the laser cutter being used, but in general, laser cutting machines can cut at speeds ranging from a few inches per minute up to several hundred inches per minute.

For us, we could cut the urgent prototypes in 2 working days.
