Laser fine cutting
The minimal heat affected zone provides for a gentle treatment of temperature-sensitive material, e.g. the frequently used Nitinol. Nearly all cutting geometries are feasible – including cutting edges with variable cutting angles. The high quality of the cutting edges – with almost no burrs, edge hardening and tapering – reduces the need for post-processing enormously. The big benefits of laser fine cutting are high speed and high productivity compared to competing mechanical or chemical processes or even eroding.
