Methods of laser cutting

Depending on the type of material, there are two basic methods of laser cutting used in Australia, namely – High pressure cutting or fusion cutting and laser torch or oxidation cutting. In high pressure cutting, energy of laser beam is used to fuse the material while a high pressure gas jet is used to clean up the molten material. In oxidation laser cutting method, laser beam is used to heat the material till it reaches its ignition temperature. Gas jet is used to oxide the molten material.
