Manufacturers seeking guidance on how to configure laser cutting technology for their specific application requirements can now access a comprehensive guide compiled by Spartanics – Laser Cutting Technical Guide: How to Match Today's Laser Cutting Technology to Application Requirements - Parts I and II.

Spartanics, which manufactures both lower-cost systems and high-end laser cutters, created this laser cutting technical guide to help manufacturers select the types of components and features they need in laser cutting technology, without encumbering either excess cost or inadequate performance capabilities.

Laser Cutting Technical Guide Part I chapters include:

  1. Choosing Between Laser Cutting vs Tool-based Die Cutting Systems
  2. Quality and the Soft Marking Standard
  3. Cutting Speed vs Web Speed

Laser Cutting Technical Guide Part II includes:

  1. Fallacy of the Double Scan Head Advantage
  2. Systems Integration, User-Friendliness and Production Output
  3. Selecting System Components
  4. Suggested Method for Sourcing Laser Cutting Technology

Markus Klemm, Spartanics R&D Software Engineer, and author of the Spartanics Laser Cutting Technical Guide, comments: "When Spartanics first introduced its laser cutting technology to manufacturers, most people in the industry were newcomers to laser cutting and first had to grapple with understanding the differences between tool-free and tool-based cutting. Now, the basic advantages of laser cutting seem to be better understood in the industry and the point of address is more focused on understanding the differences between various laser cutting models, system component options, and how to differentiate obsolete systems from current technology in this rapidly changing field."

Spartanics, which manufactures both more standard lower-priced laser cutters and top-of-the-line, high-end systems, estimates that the great majority of manufacturers will be well served by lower-cost laser cutters as long as they have state-of-art software engineering. The Laser Cutting Technical Guide is designed to help prospective users of laser cutting technology zero in on the laser cutter features that are best matched to their applications and give many tips on what to look for and what to avoid."
