What is 5-Axis Laser Cutting
5-axis laser cutting refers to the process of cutting materials with a laser beam using a machine that can move the laser beam in five axes of motion. These five axes include X, Y, and Z linear axes, as well as A and B rotary axes.
The X, Y, and Z axes control the movement of the laser beam in a straight line in three dimensions, while the A and B rotary axes enable the laser head to tilt and rotate in order to cut materials at various angles.
The advantages of 5-axis laser cutting include increased precision and accuracy, as well as the ability to cut complex shapes and contours that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional 2D or 3D cutting methods.
Some common applications of 5-axis laser cutting include the production of aerospace components, medical devices, and automotive parts, as well as the cutting of high-precision parts for the electronics and semiconductor industries.
