Laser Cutting Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel Laser Cutting

At Hai Tech Lasers, Inc., we provide precision industrial laser services to customers across a diverse set of industries. One of our core service offerings is laser cutting. We accommodate a broad selection of materials in our laser cutting operations, including stainless steel.

Below, we provide an overview of the laser cutting process, including what it entails, the benefits of using it on stainless steel, and the typical applications of laser cut stainless steel.

An Overview of Stainless Steel Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a manufacturing process that utilizes lasers to cut materials into the desired shape and size. It is suitable for creating simple to highly complex components with a high degree of precision and accuracy from a variety of materials.

One of the most commonly used materials in laser cutting operations is stainless steel. It is strong, durable, and corrosion resistant, all of which make it ideal for use in the production of many different parts and products. The stainless steel laser cutting process creates high-accuracy components with excellent edge quality, which makes it suitable for cutting out complex or intricate designs.

Benefits of Laser Cutting Stainless Steel

Compared to other cutting methods, laser cutting offers many advantages when used to process stainless steel, including:

  • Greater design freedom. The laser cutting process accommodates an array of designs, ranging from small to big and simple to complex.
  • Better accuracy and precision. Laser cutting equipment readily accommodates automation, which allows manufacturers to produce parts and products to tight tolerances in small to large batches.
  • Cleaner cuts and smoother edges. The edges on laser cut components require little to no finishing (e.g., cleaning and treating), which helps reduce overall production time and, consequently, production costs.
  • Smaller risk of distortion and contamination. As laser cutting is a non-contact process, there is little to no risk of mechanical distortion or material contamination.
  • Lower waste generation. The laser cutting process allows for tighter tolerances, narrower cutting widths, and smaller distortion areas, which enable manufacturers to place individual pieces closer together on the material. As a result, producing a part using laser cutting often generates less waste than producing the same part using another cutting method.

Applications of Laser Cut Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is strong, durable, and affordable, all of which make it a popular material choice for a wide range of applications. Examples of laser cut parts and products commonly made from stainless steel include:

  • Aircraft, automobile, and military equipment components
  • Architectural elements
  • Artwork and artisan goods
  • Electrical and electronic enclosures
  • Jewelry
  • Promotional/personalized goods (e.g., pens and trophies)
  • Structural components (e.g., angles, beams, and tubing)
  • Signage
  • Toys
