Mild steel is probably the most commonly used form of steel. Its low cost and favourable mechanical properties make it attractive for a wide range of applications. It is widely used in the construction and automotive industries, as well as for domestic goods, flanges, fittings, pipes, and more.
Our CO2 lasers can cut mild steel using a flame cutting technique, with oxygen assist gas. An exothermic reaction between the heated metal and the assist gas generates energy which assists the laser beam. Process speeds are therefore relatively fast, and thicknesses up to 6mm can be handled with the OEM 65iX.
