Laser cutting is a type of subtractive manufacturing that cuts a digital design file into a piece of sheet material. It is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is popular among schools, small businesses, and hobbyists right now for its easy using and excellent results. A computer directs a high-power laser at the material. The material then melts, burns or vaporizes leaving an edge with a high-quality finish. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials would involve a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. There are many different methods in cutting using lasers, with different types used to cut different material. Some of the methods are vaporization, melt and blow, melt blow and burn, thermal stress cracking, scribing, cold cutting and burning stabilized laser cutting.
