What distinguishes laser fine cutting at HAILTEC?

Laser fine cutting: A good decision

HAILTEC has been an expert for laser fine cutting and welding in micromachining since 2005. For precise laser cutting, we rely on QCW pulsed fiber lasers and Nd:YAG laser systems from DMG MORI and Trumpf. These laser sources introduce very little energy into the part. Little heat means little distortion and allows for high filigree cuts. With fine cutting laser systems and modern beam sources, we achieve reproducible fine cuts of 0.03 mm gap width and less for you. Depending on the sheet thickness, the tolerances are in the range of +/- 0.01 mm. As a contract manufacturer, we can also deburr or satin-finish the parts on request.

Thanks to high-precision and temperature-stable systems, we are partially replacing wire-eroded sheet metal cutting with precise laser cutting. Behind this is an intelligent process control, in which the laser power and the nozzle distance are constantly adjusted and monitored during the cutting process to the respective cutting feed.

Another advantage of laser fine cutting with HAILTEC: Our zero point clamping system fixtures with repeatable accuracy and thus ensures short short set-up times. This is particularly practical when cutting pre-punched strips with press-fit zones or when re-setting already machined components.

Frequently asked questions about laser fine cutting

Can HAILTEC also automate laser fine cutting?

Thanks to robotic assistance, you can count on us as a fast and reliable partner even for large quantities. With a mobile robot cell, we run autonomous shifts and manufacture your components from quantities of 1 to 500,000 even faster and more efficiently. Because exact dimensional accuracy is what counts in laser fineblanking technology - this is an ideal match for automated placement by robot, which also ensures speed and safe processes at HAILTEC.

What safety measures must be observed during laser fine cutting?

When laser fine cutting, there are a number of safety measures that must be followed to prevent injury and damage. Here are some important measures: Always wear protective equipment, such as safety glasses and hearing protection. The laser beam can damage the eye and harm hearing. Make sure the work area is neatly tidy and free of obstructions. Always use the recommended protective gloves and other protective equipment. Never use the laser near flammable materials or explosive substances. Always turn off and disconnect the laser from the power supply when not in use. Always keep the laser beam away from yourself and others. Follow all instructions and regulations given in the laser operating manual. Provide adequate ventilation to reduce the risk of smoke and toxic gases. If you are unsure how to use the laser safely, contact a qualified professional or the laser manufacturer.

Does HAILTEC also offer surface finish?

Surface finishing is an important part of our technology portfolio. This means that we deliver your components ready for installation, for example with satin-finished surfaces. Learn more under surface finish or simply inquire directly. We always deliver perfectly brushed, burr-free parts.

What is the difference between laser cutting and laser fine cutting?

Precise and fine laser fine cutting works with pulsed laser energy. This means that high peak pulse powers and a large power density are generated on the surface of the workpiece. The high power density melts and vaporizes the material. Quality is particularly important for laser fine-cut components: laser fine-cutting works almost burr-free up to a material thickness of one millimeter. Generally speaking, the accuracy of laser cutting and laser fine cutting is better in a ratio of 1:5 to 1:10.

Which process gases are used in laser fine cutting?

Commonly used process gases for laser cutting are oxygen, nitrogen and argon. In laser fusion cutting or laser fine cutting, a reaction-inhibiting cutting gas (argon or nitrogen) is forced into the kerf at high pressure. The cooling gas avoids oxidation at the cutting edge. Compared to oxygen, argon and nitrogen have an advantage: they do not react with the molten metal in the kerf and shield the cut surface from the surrounding material.

Machine setup: laser fine cutting vs laser cutting

Precision laser cutting systems have more exact tolerances and higher positioning accuracy compared to classic laser cutting centers in mechanical engineering. This is due to the design and the integrated path measuring system: In laser fine cutting systems, the axes are equipped with water-cooled linear direct drives, which are monitored live via a glass scale on each axis and readjusted if necessary. In addition, in HAILTEC's laser fine cutting center all systems are regularly checked and calibrated by means of a ballbar test.

How does laser fusion cutting work

Laser fusion cutting is a cutting process using a solid-state laser. For laser fusion cutting, a reaction-inhibiting cutting gas (argon or nitrogen) is forced into the kerf at up to 20 bar pressure. The gas cools and prevents oxidation at the cut edge.

When is laser fusion cutting used?

The process is suitable for thin sheets and for workpieces that have to meet high optical requirements. Advantages: Oxide-free cut edges High cut quality Economical machining of numerous materials, since hardly any rework is required Aluminum alloys mild steel Stainless steel alloys Copper Brass Non-ferrous alloys Steel Titanium

For which materials is laser fusion cutting suitable?

Aluminum alloys, mild steel, stainless steel alloys, copper, brass, non-ferrous alloys, steel, and titanium

How does flame cutting work?

In flame cutting or laser cutting, oxygen is blown into the kerf at up to 20 bar pressure. This enables a very high cutting speed, because the energy generated during combustion accelerates the cutting process.

When is flame cutting used?

The process is suitable for thicker sheets than fusion or sublimation cutting. Advantage: Separates larger sheet thicknesses very quickly. Disadvantage: The oxide layer on the cut edge must often be removed before the component can be further processed.

For which materials is flame cutting suitable?

Only materials whose ignition temperature is lower than the melting temperature of the material can be cut, such as low-alloy or unalloyed steels as well as: Steel (free cutting steel, structural steel, spring steel, cold work steel, tool steel), aluminum and Stainless steel

Laser beam or waterjet: Which cutting process is ideal for you?

Together, we look at which technology brings the best results for you: laser fine cutting, micro waterjet cutting or ultra-short pulse micro laser cutting. The choice depends heavily on the material and the desired result. Laser fine cutting is often recommended for thin sheets and 2D as well as 3D shapes, while micro waterjet cutting and the UKP laser cut sensitive materials and complex geometries without thermal stress. Thanks to the exceptional range of technologies, you benefit from the optimal manufacturing process in every case.

What is the advantage of laser material processing?

Laser material processing is a technique used for the production of high-precision metal parts as well as for surface finishing. The technique is based on the use of a high-energy laser that heats the material to be processed and thus cuts it. Laser material processing is a very precise and clean processing method that is also suitable for complex shapes and structures. Since no mechanical tools are used, laser material processing does not create any residue or contamination of the material and is therefore very process reliable and repeatable. Laser material processing is a very flexible processing method, as it can be used for both series and individual parts. Laser material processing can also be used to introduce surface structures into the material that would not be possible with other processing methods.
