In addition to marking and engraving metals, Miyachi Unitek's LMF series fiber laser markers can make fine, high-quality cuts in copper, steel, and aluminum up to 0.02 in. thick. This capability enables cost-effective prototyping of lead frame parts, featured sheet parts, and steel tubes and can be used to modify an existing design.
The method uses no direct assist gas. Precise control over laser parameters means the cut can be tuned for speed and quality with an underside burr of less than 0.0005 in.
