CO2 lasers are a tool that offer outstanding power and flexibility in laser material cutting applications. Laser cutting is a thermal process in which a laser, assisted by a gas, heats up the material, resulting in a changing of its state. Laser material cutting advantages include great versatility regarding cutting speed, geometry, precision and accuracy of the cut. Plus, no further processing is required: the part you'll get will be perfectly finished. The typical 10.6 micrometers wavelength of CO2 laser sources is readily absorbed by a wide range of materials. Metals, ceramic, wood, paper, glass, fabric, composites: a high-power CO2 laser source will slice them like a knife. Owing to their beam quality and energetic efficiency, El.En's RF CO2 laser sources are perfect for all those industries where achieving precision of cutting is a strategic asset: automotive, packaging, machine tool, lcd processing and others.
