What added value have eurolaser CO₂ laser cutter?
Polyoxymethylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic resin which is often distributed under trading names, such as Delrin ® or Hostoform ®. These qualities make POM a suitable replacement for metallic materials in many cases. After processing with the CO2 laser, this plastic is used in mechanical engineering, automotive and vehicle manufacturing and furniture. Besides, POM is often used in electrical engineering and for packaging. Polyoxymethylene is mainly used in form of foils and thin plates or sheets for laser cutting.
