Laser cutting of composite materials

eurolaser offers you CO₂ laser cutter for highest precision

If basic materials that are suitable for laser are used, composite material combinations can often be cut and engraved without any problem. Materials suitable for laser processing that contain artificial fibres are generally welded so that fraying is prevented. In most cases, the laser process with its thermal effect ensures here a clean welding of the cutting edge. With the parallel utilisation of CO2 laser and mechanical tools (knife, router) on one machine, you will turn your eurolaser system into a universal cutter.

Material information for laser cutting of composite materials:

Composite materials are materials that are made of two or more materials that are joined together. Whereby composite materials have different material properties than those of the individual component materials. The material properties and the geometry of the component materials are important for the properties of composites. Size effects, in particular, often play an important role. Joining is effected by means of material closure or form closure or a combination of both. In this segment, technical textiles are typical materials which will be used for laser cutting. Due to the very wide range of different material combinations, it is only possible to mention the basic advantages of laser processing here. It is necessary to check out each application in advance in order to test the individual possibilities for laser cutting.

Common terms for composite materials:

Fibre-reinforced materials, composite materials, Dispersion-reinforced materials, laminated composite materials, particle composites, laminates
