An electrically powered gas laser is used in the sheet metal processing method known as CO2 laser cutting. Steel, stainless steel, or aluminium metal sheet material is contour-cut by the laser. Using CO2 cutting technology, you have a lot of shaping freedom.
Even cutting complicated shapes is made simple by this. A CO2 laser is a gas laser in which the active medium is a mixture of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and helium.
The molecules of carbon dioxide are excited. A new photon is produced when an infrared photo collides with a carbon dioxide molecule. One of the most often utilised lasers in the field of dermatology is the CO2 laser.
The Global CO2/UV Hybrid laser Processing Machine market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Two new CV Series models of 3D CO2 laser processing systems for cutting carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP), which are strong, lightweight materials used in automobiles, were just unveiled by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
Based on research conducted by the business, the new models have CO2 laser oscillators that combine the oscillator and amplifier into a single enclosure.
This is a first for the industry, and when combined with the CV Series’ distinctive processing head, it enables high-speed and precise processing. As a result, CFRP products may now be mass produced, which was previously not possible with current processing techniques.
In recent years, there have been rising demands in the automotive sector for lower CO2 emissions, better fuel economy, and lighter materials to enable longer driving distances. Due to this, demand for CFRP, a relatively new material, is rising.
Contrarily, CFRP processing utilising current technology has encountered problems with waste treatment, high operating costs, and low productivity.
The methodology needed to be changed. By reaching high productivity and processing quality well above that of current processing techniques, Mitsubishi Electric’s CV Series will overcome these difficulties and enable the mass manufacturing of CFRP goods at a level that was previously unachievable.
