Aluminum Laser Cutting & Marking

Cutting reflective metals, like aluminum, is more than possible with Kern’s CO2 or fiber laser systems. High powered lasers quickly pierce through the metal, achieving a quality cut part without creating any tooling wear. CO2 laser systems also do an excellent job marking aluminum. A laser marking spray is applied to the metal leaving a dark, durable mark on the surface of the aluminum sheet.

Aluminum Laser Cutting & Engraving Examples

Unlike other technologies, laser cutting leaves no aluminum shavings after processing. Laser cutting relies on a small beam diameter — small when compared to alternative tooling like die cutting, router bits, etc. — saving valuable material. Also, lasers are capable of achieving intricate cuts, allowing much more freedom than the square edges plasma and CNC routers leave behind on aluminum.

High-speed laser beams absorb into the metal, making it possible to cut various alloys of aluminum, including aerospace- and marine-grade aluminum alloys. Laser systems are capable of cutting sheets of aluminum to a high yield, resulting in reduced material waste and optimal sheet usage. Laser-processing aluminum allows for clean cutting with air assist, which greatly reduces or eliminates dross.
