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