The Benefits of Laser Cutting
24/01/2019

Of all ways in which signage can be created, the method that leads to laser cut signage has many advantages attached to it. It’s speedy and reliable method is done through machines such as 2000 x 1200 Lasertech C02 water cooled laser cutting machine which we at Sign Trade use. With laser cut signs, you are sure to have top-class signage in next to no time thanks to companies such as Sign Trade. For you to see why laser cutting is beneficial for not only signage manufacturing but to the broader audience, we have listed the key ways in which you can appreciate the method of cutting.

Perfect Precision Time After Time! With laser cut letters, you can be sure that their manufacturing will be done with perfect precision. Through using a professional laser cutting machine, your material will have a smooth feel to it, be done to a high quality and will have very littler material wasted in the process. Because most people don’t want to have the possible implications of traditional ways in manufacturing signage, they will mainly go to laser cutting if they want to make sure that the look and quality of the sign they have paid for is of an acceptable standard.

Done Quickly and Efficiently! One of the best things about laser cutting materials in general, not just signage, is the time taken to do so. Due to the laser cut signage being created through machining, it is a simple task to simply input the design and allow the machine to carry out its work of cutting the pieces from the design. This also means that no second version is required. The machine for laser cutting will take your design and cut out a perfect physical copy without need of back ups being created (unless that is what customers require anyway). As long as the company has your design, and definite sizes for dimensions then it can be completed in very little time.

Doesn’t Create Damage-Worthy Heat! A helpful benefit, especially for the companies undergoing the work allowing laser cut signs, is that heat from the machines used doesn’t tend to cause any damage to materials or surrounding areas. Heat diffusion is thankfully minimised when using laser cutting machines, which means that surrounding areas, such as other machines and tools, are not thermally affected in a negative way. This is because the field of which you can be affected by the heat is lessened thanks to the minimisation.

Safer Than You Think! Believe it or not, the use of laser cutting machines was created and incorporated for their relevant industries as a way of keeping up with the increased demand in production of various products. Nowadays, with health and safety being such a high priority, especially in places consisting of multiple production lines, the safety in terms of machines used to laser cut letters and general signage is of paramount importance. As you would expect, the process of using a laser cutting machine is given the best measures to protect surrounding workers, usually by encasing the laser itself in a tightly sealed box for when it is used.

No Contact Involved! When referring to no contact, this actually refers to contact between the laser itself and the material being cut. Your laser cut letters and signage is actually shaped by the heat generated from the machine’s laser. The main benefit of this actually links back to the earlier point of no damage being caused. The fact that the laser has no actual physical contact with the material being cut means there is less chance of damages such as warping, distortion or contamination to the material, therefore meaning there is no potential need for repairing costs. This means that no contact of the laser with the material makes sure you are left with a precise and perfect cutting that you have requested from the company carrying out the laser cutting for you.

Can Cut Any Material…With Any Thickness! Although it can affect the production time taken to make your laser cut signage, laser cutting machines can actually cut through materials of pretty much any thickness. Materials being cut that are thinner can be cut with the laser being applied faster, whereas with thicker materials the laser will move much slower to enhance precision. Again, no matter the thickness of the material being cut by the laser cutting machine, there will be no chance of damage (such as warping, contamination or distortion) to the material, again meaning there is little to no chance of having to pay out for repairing issues.
