The Benefits of an Oculus Fibre Laser

Oculus Fibre Laser

The Oculus fibre lasers are ideal for cutting and engraving metallic material such as aluminium, stainless steel and mild steel. They make use of optical fibre cable to guide light, generating a beam that is often more precise and targetable than other methods.

In this post, we explore the Oculus fibre laser in more detail.

Cutting

Oculus fibre lasers are preferable for cutting metallic materials, thanks to their low maintenance costs and electrical efficiency.

Fibre lasers cut material using a focused continuous wave or pulsed laser beam. They offer fast cutting speed, a high percentage of uptime, and less material waste.

Fibre

Engraving

Fibre lasers perform engravings by removing a small amount of surface material from a substrate, according to a pattern described by a computer programme. The laser has a similar action to a chisel, but unlike conventional tools, offers a far more accurate cut, allowing for more intricate designs.

Marking

Manufacturers also sometimes use fibre lasers for marking. This process involves using intense pulsed beams to create marks on the surface of materials to produce visible discolouration. Common applications include creating indelible serial numbers or barcodes on products.

Drilling

Focused fibre lasers can create percussion-drilled holes in substrates, such as aluminium and steel. The intense heat generated by lasers vaporises material at the targeted site, giving manufacturers the ability to carve multiple tiny holes in close proximity to the material’s surface.
