How to Choose Better CNC Cutting Process Creatingway
Usually, when we talked about the CNC cutting process, we will think of CNC laser cutting first. It is a process that is developed faster and commonly used these years. But there is still another CNC cutting process which is water jet cutting. It is also conveniently used in our daily life.
Both CNC cutting processes are good and can be used in our daily life. But how to choose a better CNC cutting process when we receive a project from a customer? And in certain conditions, which process is much more economical? Below I will explain the differences between two cutting processes, then it is much clearer to choose. and what industry they will be used, and what kind of material will be used. Creatingway shares this knowledge to our global customers.
Two Main CNC Cutting Processes Will Be Used In The Industry?
CNC Laser cutting
For thin or medium – thickness sheet metal, especially steel and aluminum, we will use CNC laser cutting. It is a cutting process that is faster and more energy-efficient. In the past, laser cutting was not possible for some thicker material, but today’s higher-wattage machines are approaching the capabilities of plasma cutting, Most of metal fabrication process included the CNC laser cutting to cut the material first, then forming them. This is very important to our current fabrication production.
Water Jet cutting
Comparing with CNC laser cutting, we seldom talk about water jet cutting. But it is really an ideal process for ceramics, stone, and thicker metals which are more difficult to process by laser cutting or other processes. What’s more, it can also cut extremely hard, reflective, and non-conductive materials, making it an efficient and productive fabrication method.
What Industry Will Be Used For The CNC Cutting Process?
In fact, most of the industries will be used with CNC cutting process, whatever your projects are from the electronic industry, automotive, or medical devices, we always approach best economic product process and good quality to our customers, when our customers have a limited budget for your prototype and projects, we always are seeking for our current CNC cutting process.
What Kind of Materials Will Be Used for the CNC Cutting Process?
Both CNC laser cutting and water jet cutting can cut most of the material
CNC laser cutting usually we have cut it like the aluminum sheet, steel sheet, Copper sheet, etc most of the metal material, also can cut most of the plastic material like PMMA, POM, Nylon, etc.
Water jet cutting process, compared CNC laser cutting, it is more economic, and make product appearance aesthetic, it can make the product side is smooth, etc. Welcome, visit our advantage of the water jet process blog for more details.
So from above all, we can see the laser cutting is fast and efficient. And the water jet cutting is versatile and powerful. When we get the projects from the customer, we could easily judge which process we should use. It saves time for both customers and us.
