Things You Should Know About Designing for Laser Cutting

April 30, 2021 Posted by:

When you are first getting started in laser cutting or engraving, you will need to learn some of the basics, like how to make designs for cutting. Typically, CO2 laser cutters work in a way that is very similar to an inkjet printer, in the sense that you send it a design digitally and it recreates it. To better understand design types, you will need to understand the difference in raster images and vector images. Raster image is like a picture that is made up of tiny pixels and can be easily distorted if you try to resize it. Vector images will not distort no matter how much you resize...

Robotic vs Manual Plasma Cutter

April 20, 2021 Posted by:

Many people still debate on which plasma cutting method is the best (manual or robotic) and whether or not robotic plasma cutting will eventually take over all together. Plasma cutting is an incredibly useful process of cutting that is mainly used for cutting various thicknesses of metal. However, this method can be quite dangerous as plasma jets can reach temperatures of around 20,000 degrees Celsius. When it comes to power, there is no denying that the robotic cutters have the greatest ability, which means they are typically used for big jobs, such as construction and can reach the highest levels of heat generation. The main advantage of a manual plasma...
