Laser Cut Materials

Material Specifications

Laser-cutting technology has come a long way. Today, laser-cutting materials include metal, plastic, wood, rubber, etc. Computer-controlled laser cutting machines (CNC) determine how and where the machine’s interface is integrated into the material.

Home » Material Specifications

The type of laser defines what type and thickness of material it can cut through because different laser types have different power ranges. Usually, higher-power lasers are used on an industrial scale to cut out large sections of sheet metal or plastics, while lower-power lasers are used for a wide range of thinner, more potentially flammable materials like paper and card stock, wood, and some plastics.

Our CNC laser cutting machine in Melbourne can cut metallic and non-metallic raw materials with different thicknesses. All common industrial processing materials – from steel to aluminium, stainless steel, and non-ferrous metal sheets, all the way to non-metal materials such as plastics or wood – can be cut safely and in high

Laser Cut Materials

Advanced Cutting Technology offers:

Laser Cutting of Metals

Lasers have the least thermal effect on metals from all thermal cutting processes. This requires no further deburring or grinding owing to laser-cut edges finished with precise quality. Our CNC laser cutter services in Melbourne include mild steel up to 25 mm, carbon steel up to 25 mm, and alloy and tool steel. Steels known as conventionally difficult to machine can be laser cut regardless of their hardness.

Laser Cutting of Organics (Plastics)

The intense heat source of our lasers breaks down the polymer chains of plastic to provide fast, accurate cutting. Laser-cut acrylics provide a very clean mirror-finished edge that requires no further work.

Laser Cutting of Composites

Lightweight fibre-reinforced polymers are difficult to machine with conventional cutting tools and the non-contact cutting properties of the laser are more readily suited to them. We are more than capable of producing accurate and precise finished fibre products.

Laser Cutting of Rubber

The laser quickly vaporises natural gum and synthetic rubber up to 19mm thick, allowing precise laser cutting for gaskets.

Laser Cutting of Wood

Timber, plywood and particle board all have advantages when cut with the efficiency of a laser. At Advanced Cutting Technology, our CNC laser cutting machine in Melbourne can cut through various wooden elements with our state-of-the-art technology.

Plus Laser Cutting of:

Cardboard, leather, the possibilities of our laser cutting materials and services in Melbourne are as broad as the human imagination. Our experts in laser processing of materials can help ensure your project comes to life.

our lasers can virtually cut anything!

Materials that can be laser cut include virtually anything with Advanced Cutting Technology lasers. This varies from delicate laser cutting materials such as timber and plastic to other tougher materials like metal and stainless steel. Whether you need regular laser cutting or have material over 20mm, our Carrum Downs CNC laser cutting machine can do the job. Furthermore, our laser-cutting services deliver precise and high-quality work across Melbourne without wasting time. Laser processing of materials with Advanced Cutting Technology requires minimal human intervention.

We also produce test laser cuts to establish an edge finish – free of charge. Our quotes include a programme charge and a cutting charge for using our CNC cutting machine. The charge scale varies according to the volume of work and the terms of the period of the order made within Melbourne.

Contact us today to find out if your imaginative design and material could be a perfect fit for our laser beams – or we can help suggest which material could be. With accuracy for intricate art designs in metal, plastics and more – the combinations are endless!

Laser Cut Materials: Cost-Effective Industrial Solutions

Advanced Cutting Technology can reduce welding work, the number of parts needed, and your costs! Our services open up a whole new window of opportunity for your company and can change how you design parts to reduce overhead costs. Have your parts self-fixture and eliminate assembly errors today.

Our CNC laser cutting services and a team of experts in Melbourne allow your business to minimise manufacturing and reduce the number of parts required for assembly within your industry. We can help you with an intelligent design moving from prototype to production and offer suggestions on how you might be able to use Advanced Cutting Technology laser cutting.

We also stock a high volume of laser cutting materials, which means we probably have the material you need on hand, but it also means that we can offer you a competitive price with faster turnarounds. Using our laser-cut materials is the best option for keeping costs lower. We have everything from flat sheet stock to tube-based materials.

Advanced Cutting Technology’s laser software also produces tight nests, significantly mitigating waste material. Common material jobs are nested and cut together, increasing efficiency, reducing changeover time and decreasing costs!

cost benefits of Laser Cutting include:

  • The laser cutting profile program costs less than 0.5% of the die cost.
  • There’s no need for die storage or maintenance with laser cutting. Minor design changes for laser cutting incur little expense compared to the cost of alterations to hard dies.
  • Tooling costs are eliminated, and close nesting of parts allows for more economical use of materials. Laser-cut short runs maintain quality comparable to off-tool production and remain competitive when considering all manual operation costs.
  • Without the need for tooling, short lead times and production runs become viable, making even one-off laser cut jobs cost-effective.
  • Laser cutting allows for the use of special materials that are difficult or impossible to cut using other methods.
  • Specialised services are available for urgent projects requiring quick turnaround times.
