Laser Cutting Titanium

Titanium Laser Cutting

At Hai Tech Lasers, Inc., we provide precision laser cutting services to customers across a wide range of industries. The process enables us to cut various parts and products from a variety of materials, including titanium. 

Below, we provide an overview of the titanium laser cutting process, including what it is, the benefits of using titanium, and the typical applications of laser cut titanium.

What Is Titanium Laser Cutting?

The laser cutting process utilizes a high-powered laser to cut materials with a high degree of accuracy and precision. These qualities make it ideal for producing simple to highly complex components. 

One of the most commonly used materials in laser cutting operations is titanium. It offers the same strength as steel at half the weight and with twice the flexibility. For these reasons, it is often used for the production of components for applications where high strength, low weight, and good flexibility are critical (e.g., aerospace or medical products). Other key characteristics include its non-toxic nature, high melting point, and corrosion resistance. 

One of the challenges manufacturers face when cutting titanium is its sensitivity to heat. It must be cut at relatively low temperatures. Otherwise, it may become warped, discolored, or contaminated. Using a Fiber laser cutter with nitrogen assist gas helps avoid these issues. 

What Are the Benefits of Laser Cut Titanium?

Laser cut titanium parts and products offer a number of benefits, especially when compared to components made from other materials. For example: 

  • They are strong but lightweight. Titanium is as strong and hard as steel but is half the weight. These qualities result in lighter components that can hold heavy loads.
  • They are flexible. Titanium has a low modulus of elasticity, which helps components made out of it retain/return to their original shape even after being bent or otherwise deformed.
  • They are durable. Titanium demonstrates a natural resistance to corrosion and a melting point of 3,000° F, which help it maintain its integrity even in high-moisture or high-temperature environments.

What Are Typical Applications of Laser Cut Titanium?

Titanium is strong, lightweight, flexible, and durable, all of which make it a suitable material for many parts and products. Some of the industries that regularly use laser cut titanium components include: 

  • Aerospace (e.g., aircraft and spacecraft components)
  • Architecture (e.g., interior and exterior elements)
  • Chemical Processing (e.g., components for systems that handle harsh chemicals)
  • Manufacturing (e.g., various parts and products)
  • Medical (e.g., implants and surgical tools)
  • Military (e.g., components of vehicles and weapons)
  • Sporting Goods (e.g., bicycles, golf clubs, and other recreational equipment)
