Laser cutting copper sheet metal was always a problem or even dangerous to some CO2 laser cutting machines due to the back reflections that could damage the laser resonator. Now with the development of new fibre laser cutting machines copper and brass is easy. Our Trumpf 3030 3KW fibre laser can cut copper and brass sheet metal up to 6mm thick and the video here shows it cutting 1.5mm thick copper. The laser also being so good at cutting curved profiles was the perfect solution to cutting this complex curved profile fish shape used by an artist as the starting point for his artwork. This video is also a nice example of fitting the best pattern of components into a standard sheet size using our Radan software. The software will automatically try rotating each part and produce the most efficient pattern (nest) to suit the sheet given. I have tried to beat it but usually the software wins!
Perhaps you have a sheet metal component that needs to be made from copper or brass and you thought it couldn’t be laser cut. Give us a call and we will be happy to quote you for laser cutting and bending etc to make your design a reality.
