Laser cutters are cutting machines that use lasers to cut materials and create intricate designs. The strength of machine varies from the style of the machine and the laser that is used. There are three main types of laser cutting machines. Read about these lasers below:

CO₂ laser cutting machine

The CO₂ laser cutting machine is a type of gas laser cutter. The laser is created through an electrical carbon dioxide mixture. This laser cutting machine can be used on non-metal and metal materials, though it is most suited for use on non-metals. These machines can be used to cut, engrave and marking various materials such as plastic and wood.

Fibre laser cutting machine

The fibre laser cutting machine is a very powerful cutting machine that uses optical fibre to create its laser. This laser is absorbed into the material that it is cutting, making it the ideal laser cutter for cutting reflective materials as there will be no need for the laser to produce a higher energy output to cut the material.

Crystal laser cutting machine

There are two types of crystal laser cutting machines; neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet and neodymium-doped yttrium ortho-vanadate. These laser cutting machines are extremely powerful laser cutting machines used in many different industries for various applications such as manufacturing, medical and more. This machine is also a great choice for industries that work with a variety of materials as they can cut, engrave and mark materials from metal and non-metal groups.
