The Laser Institute of America invites you to come discover DirectIndustry, the online industrial exhibition where you can find a complete selection of laser cutting machines for your manufacturing needs. DirectIndustry lets you chose between the industries leading manufacturers of laser application products.
A YAG laser is a solid-state laser which uses a YAG crystal to amplify the light. The YAG laser is used in industry for etching, engraving, marking and cutting plastics and metals. They are a type of solid state laser which use a solid material such as crystal, glass or semiconductor to determine the operational wavelength.
Glass cutting machine
A glass cutting machine is used in industry to safely an easily cut glass from sheets. The machines are generally CNC with automatic loading and unloading of the glass sheets. Depending on the thickness of the glass, the machine can control the pressure of the cutting head, provide cutting oil and limit the cutting speed.
Water jet cutting machine
Water jet cutting machines cut metals and other materials using high pressure water mixed with an abrasive substance. The water jet is capable of cutting material without overheating it which can be advantageous with temperature sensitive materials. You can also find 5-axis water-jet cutting machines which can perform 3-dimensional cuts such as counter-sinks and chamfers for specific parts.
