POM - Laser Cutting
More and more often, the decision is taken not to mill plastic semi-finished products but to have us laser cut the semi-finished products. There is an ongoing shift from milling POM to laser cutting POM parts - and that is not without reason. The reason is simple. POM can be processed, for example, even more accurately and faster by means of laser cutting. The result of a faster production time is lower costs. Despite the higher production speed, the accuracy is excellent. With laser cutting, a concentrated, high-power "light beam” shines on the material. The material exposed to the laser evaporates very rapidly. The sheet material is on the machine during laser cutting, but the material is not touched by, for example, a milling cutter. Laser cutting is therefore contactless.
