Laser cutting is a precise and efficient material processing technique that uses a focused laser beam to cut through various materials. The laser beam’s high intensity and narrow focus enable it to create clean, intricate cuts with minimal heat-affected zones. During the process, the material absorbs the laser energy, which causes it to melt, vaporize, or be blown away by a jet of gas, depending on the material type and thickness. This results in accurate and detailed cuts that often require minimal finishing.
CNC grinding, also known as Computer Numerical Control grinding, is a precision machining process that utilizes computer-controlled machines to achieve accurate and consistent grinding results. It involves using a rotating abrasive wheel to remove material from a workpiece’s surface, creating a desired shape or finish. CNC grinding machines are equipped with programmable controls that dictate the grinding process, including speed, depth, and direction of the wheel movement. This level of automation ensures high precision and efficiency, making CNC grinding suitable for producing complex geometries, tight tolerances, and superior surface finishes.
