Tube laser cutters operate on the same principles as regular lasers. Thus, they use amplified laser beams as a means for thermal cutting.
Our manufacturing network provides both CO2 and fiber laser capabilities. Therefore, there are no problems with cutting reflective materials like stainless steel or aluminum, as fiber lasers are perfect for such jobs.
Regular laser cutters can also cut profiles. Especially when adjusted with some extra equipment. Still, they are not comparable to tube lasers in production speed, quality and precision. Therefore, we would definitely advise choosing tube cutting services when looking to produce profiles with cutouts.
Using lasers for tube cutting has many advantages over mechanical cutting methods like sawing and drilling (for holes). These advantages ensure greater flexibility, quickness and precision with a lower overall cost.
