Laser cutting, which uses an intense beam of light to cut materials, has become a standard procedure in the metal fabrication industry. The combination of laser optics and computer numerical control (CNC) technology provides a precise cutting process that produces an edge with a high-quality surface finish. In general, the laser cutting process involves directing the laser beam at the workpiece to create a burning, melting or vaporizing effect, then applying a jet of gas to blow the excess material away.
