Laser Cutting

The benefits of nitrogen cutting are well known for processing S.S. and Aluminium. Today, with the new super-fast motion systems, with rapid acceleration and deceleration, it is necessary to use nitrogen cutting assist gas even on mild steel to get the full value from the laser cutting machine.

Laser cutting is a process that utilizes a laser to cut materials, and nitrogen gas is often used in this process to improve the quality of the cut. The use of nitrogen in laser cutting is well-known for processing stainless steel and aluminum, but with the latest technology in super-fast motion systems, it is now necessary to use nitrogen cutting assist gas even on mild steel to get the full value from the laser cutting machine. The benefits of using nitrogen in laser cutting are many, and the use of in-house nitrogen generators such as those offered by NOVAIR can make this process even more efficient and cost-effective.

The advantages of using nitrogen in laser cutting are numerous. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Nitrogen can improve the quality of the cut, especially when working with stainless steel and aluminum. It can create a cleaner cut edge and help reduce dross and oxidation.
  • Nitrogen can also help speed up the cutting process, resulting in faster production times and greater efficiency.
  • The use of nitrogen can also help extend the life of the laser cutting machine by reducing the amount of wear and tear on the equipment.

The use of in-house nitrogen generators, such as those offered by NOVAIR, can provide a number of additional benefits when using nitrogen in laser cutting:

  • In-house nitrogen generators can provide a continuous supply of high-purity nitrogen gas, which can help ensure consistent and high-quality cuts.
  • By producing nitrogen gas in-house, manufacturers can save money on the cost of purchasing nitrogen gas cylinders and transporting them to the facility.
  • In-house nitrogen generators can also provide greater flexibility in terms of production scheduling, as manufacturers can produce nitrogen gas as needed and adjust the flow rate to match the demands of the laser cutting process.

The use of nitrogen gas in laser cutting is essential for ensuring high-quality cuts and efficient production times. By utilizing in-house nitrogen generators, manufacturers can achieve even greater efficiency and cost savings while maintaining the consistency and quality of their laser cutting processes. NOVAIR’s in-house nitrogen generators are a reliable and effective solution for providing a continuous supply of high-purity nitrogen gas for all your laser cutting needs.
