Laser cutting uses CNC technology to create precise, custom cuts from metals, plastics and various other materials. As its name suggests, laser cutting employs the use of a high focus laser beam to melt or burn through materials, resulting in smooth, highly meticulous and intricate cuts. Laser cutting also benefits from being able to cut through harder metals that can withstand other cutting methods. It is a highly efficient, and accurate process that allows for higher volume of production in shorter amount of times, all without worrying about the warping and imperfections of traditional cutting.
