Brass Laser Cutting & Engraving Examples
Unlike other technologies, laser cutting leaves no brass 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 brass.
High-power laser beams absorb into the metal, making it possible to cut brass. Laser systems are capable of cutting sheets of brass to a high yield, resulting in reduced material waste and optimal sheet usage. Laser-processing brass allows for clean cutting with air assist, which greatly reduces or eliminates dross.
