Laser cutting and engraving of metal is now one of the most economical, flexible and precise metalworking processes. All metals used in industrial processing are suitable for this purpose, with stainless steel accounting for a large proportion. Stainless steel laser cutting and laser engraving are used wherever complex geometries or industrial markings or even creative designs have to be implemented quickly, accurately and without force. The powerful and cost-efficient JustLaser laser cutters always convince with a low investment risk as well as high productivity rates and high-quality results
The areas of application for stainless steel laser cutting and laser engraving are quite diverse. For example, the process is used when the finest geometries of high precision and quality have to be cut. And the method is also extremely popular for industrial marking or creative design due to its numerous advantages.
Laser cutting of stainless steel achieves extremely narrow kerfs of high precision and quality. This means that even the finest designs can be implemented quickly and with maximum repeatability. A perfectly focused laser beam is the basic requirement for optimum results in metal cutting, which is why JustLaser uses capacitive height sensing that automatically adjusts the focus height to support you in your daily work. In addition, the addition of cutting gases such as nitrogen, oxygen and compressed air as well as the use of different lenses can further optimize the cutting results depending on the application.
Laser marking and engraving of stainless steel is frequently used in toolmaking and mechanical engineering, in the automotive industry, medical technology and in the electronics sector to apply production information such as serial numbers, functional markings, codes for permanent traceability and product labels in a permanent and forgery-proof manner. But the efficient and precise technology is also very popular in the advertising industry, among sign makers and engravers for the creative design of advertising materials and gift items.
Color marking on stainless steel is a special form of annealing. Here, the heat of the laser triggers an oxidation process below the material surface, which leads to a color change and leaves the surface completely intact. Depending on the temperature effect, different colors can be produced, which opens up numerous new possibilities for users, such as the reproduction of color logos. Thanks to the good reproducibility of colors, color markings are even possible in series production.
JustLaser's laser cutters for stainless steel laser cutting and laser engraving can be quickly and easily integrated into existing work processes. Create files directly in your familiar graphics program, send them to your laser and set the appropriate parameters for precise results using the laser software. Whether individual parts or product lines - laser cutting, laser engraving and laser marking with JustLaser laser machines succeed precisely and accurately.
Stainless steel laser cutting and laser engraving brings a range of benefits - such as maximum precision and productivity, high cost efficiency, as well as intact surfaces and hardly any reworking thanks to contactless execution. Whatever projects you want to implement - the JustLaser laser cutters always convince with highest precision and productivity, intact surfaces and high cost efficiency.
