Advantages of Laser Cutting

Laser cutting offers fast and accurate cutting capabilities to meet demanding production requirements. At JTV, our laser cutters offer close-tolerance cuts with high repeatability. The main advantages of our laser cutting services include:

  • Versatility. The versatility of laser cutting enables JTV to meet a variety of client needs. Our skilled craftsmen can precisely cut numerous material types for a variety of profiles without exchanging tools for different cuts. Laser cutters can handle precision cuts and complex angles with ease.
  • Accuracy. In comparison with other thermal cutting methods, laser cutting provides incredibly accurate cuts that satisfy even the most stringent demands for precision. While tolerances will vary depending on the thickness of the material, our laser cutting capabilities at JTV cut without the need for additional finishing or secondary processes.. Additionally, laser cutting results in a small heat affected zone (HAZ), which refers to the ancillary material of the workpiece that can undergo changes as a result of its exposure to the higher temperatures required for cutting. With a minimal HAZ, laser cutting produces more reliable and predictable parts.
  • Value. The many advantages of laser cutting allow JTV to offer maximum value to our customers. Due to the high degree of automation involved in this process, the need for human intervention is greatly minimized. Our experienced operators use their time to supervise and direct the overall quality of the process, but the equipment performs the bulk of the work to reduce overall labor costs. Compared with mechanical cutting methods, the contactless nature of laser cutting facilitates longer runs with less maintenance and tooling replacement to mitigate equipment-related costs.
  • Speed. Perhaps the most important advantage of laser cutting is its ability to provide faster turnarounds than traditional mechanical cutting methods, even on complex cuts. Laser cutting is also faster than other thermal cutting methods, such as plasma cutting and flame cutting, on materials with a thickness lower than 10 mm.
