Laser cutting

Laser cutting is a non-contact method for working sheet metal. With laser cutting you can cut very advanced shapes and contours. The technology is very flexible and can be used with various types of materials and various thicknesses.

A focused beam from a high frequency laser is directed at a right angle towards the work piece, at Bendex using fibre optics. When the laser strikes the work piece, the energy is transformed into heat that vaporises the material.

Laser cutting produces a finer edge. Additionally, a smaller zone of the material being worked is subjected to heat than with acetylene cutting, for example. The surface is very smooth and the cut can be as narrow as a few tenths of a millimetre.

Bendex presently works with fibre technology in a 6 kW flat laser cutter.
