Application introduction

Laser Cutting Foam & Filter Mats
 
Foams made of polyester (PES), polyethylene (PE) or polyurethane (PUR) are well suited for laser cutting, laser engraving and laser marking. Foam is used for suitcase inserts or padding, and for seals. Apart from these, laser cut foam is also used for artistic applications, such as souvenirs or photo frames, for example

What is special about laser cutting of foam?

The laser is a highly flexible tool: Everything is possible, from prototype construction through to series production. You can work directly from the design program, which is very important especially in the area of rapid prototyping. Compared to the complex water jet cutting process, the laser is significantly faster, more flexible and more efficient. Foam cutting with a laser machine will produce cleanly fused and sealed edges.

Industrial laser marking: Examples of applications

What is the point of buying a laser for industrial metal marking?

Do I have to fixate the material on the working surface?

No. The laser does not exert any pressure on the foam during the process, clamping or any other type of fixation is therefore not required. Simply insert the workpiece and start the laser process. This saves time and money during the preparation of the material.





 

Function and advantages of laser technology


  • The fiber laser cutting machine can be used for both plane cutting and bevel cutting, and the edges are neat and smooth, which is suitable for high-precision cutting of metal sheets. It is an energy-saving and environmentally friendly new products with space saving and gas consumption and high photoelectric conversion rate.
     

    Advantages of a Leapion laser

     
    • Excellent beam quality and good cutting quality

    • Fast cutting speed and high production efficiency

    • No burr in the cutting, high cutting precision

    • Auto focus, easy to operate and maintain

    • Very low cost of use, cost-effective

    • Closed design, safe and pollution free

    • Fast cutting speed and high production efficiency


  • The CO2 laser cutting machine adopts a focusing mirror to focus the CO2 laser beam on the surface of the material to melt the material, while blowing the melted material with a compressed gas coaxial with the laser beam, and moving the laser beam and the material relative to each other along a certain trajectory to form a slit of a certain shape
     

    Advantages of a Leapion laser

     
    • The output continuous laser is to make the cutting section smoothest.

    • The laser cutting head does not contact with the surface of the material and no damage to the workpiece.

    • Can cut non-metallic materials and has a wide cutting range.

    • No need for molds, saving production costs.


  • Fiber laser marking machine, with the good beam quality. Its output center is 1064nm, the whole machine life is longer about 100,000 hours, compared with other types of laser markers. The electro-optical conversion efficiency is more than 28%, relative 2%-10% conversion efficiency of other types of laser marking machine. Besides that it has outstanding performance in energy saving and environmental protection.
     

    Advantages of a Leapion laser

     
    • Can process a variety of metal, non-metallic materials.

    • Belonging to non-contact processing, no damage to the product, no tool wear, good marking quality.

    • Thin laser beam is thin, small processing material consumption and the processing heat affected zone.

    • High processing efficiency, computer control, easy to automate

The laser is not completely cut

The reason why the laser is not completely cut:

(1)The selection of the laser nozzle does not match the thickness of the processing plate, and the nozzle or processing plate is replaced; 

(2)The laser cutting line speed is too fast, and the operation control is required to reduce the line speed.

Abnormal sparks occur when cutting low carbon steel

Color change on the material guarantees highest legibility. Laser marking with color change is basically an electrical process, which reorders the macromolecules (by changing the direction). When the low carbon steel is cut normally, the fire bouquet is long, flat, and has fewer splits. The occurrence of abnormal sparks will affect the smoothness and quality of the cut section of the workpiece. 

In this case, if other parameters are normal, the following should be considered: 

(1) The laser head nozzle has serious loss, and the nozzle should be replaced in time; 

(2) In the case of no new nozzle replacement, the working gas pressure should be increased; 

(3) If the thread at the joint between the nozzle and the laser head is loose, the cutting should be suspended immediately, check the connection state of the laser head, and re-thread the thread.
