Laser cutting steel is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high-power laser beam to cut flat-sheet materials. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line provided in your digital design. The high-precision laser vaporizes a cut line through the stainless steel, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.
Laser engraving stainless steel is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the stainless steel, it engraves the surface. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser vaporizes a thin layer of the stainless steel surface, exposing what lies beneath. For laser cut stainless steel, the result is a more textured finish.
You can start laser cutting steel and engraving designs on it by using your very own personal factory.
