At the heart of Boss Laser’s cutting-edge machinery lies the fundamental principle of laser technology. The term “laser” stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, which is a sophisticated way of producing a highly focused, intense beam of light. This process involves amplifying light to generate a beam that is uniform in direction, phase, and wavelength. The result is a powerful tool capable of precision work across a multitude of industrial applications.

This concentrated light beam is the cornerstone of laser-based equipment, enabling the precision, efficiency, and versatility that Boss Laser’s machines are known for. Whether it’s cutting, engraving, or marking, the laser’s coherent light is what allows for such detailed and high-quality outcomes in a range of materials and applications.

What is the difference between fiber and co2 lasers?
This depends on the workspace you intend to use. With an open bed laser, people in the surrounding area must wear protective eyewear. This option works fine for small shops or if the machine can be partitioned off from the rest of the workspace. In larger, busier shops, this could be impractical. In that case, an enclosed laser is better suited.

Fiber Laser Cutter FAQ’s

What assist gas is best for cutting…
Oxygen Nitrogen Argon Compressed Air
Most efficient cutting Cleaner cuts, but less efficient Not recommended Very economical when efficiency and edge quality not critical
Efficient cutting, but may sacrifice edge quality Cleaner edges, but less efficient Only suggested for the most demanding applications Steel and aluminum are often cut with compressed air
What is the difference between fiber and co2 lasers?
Oxygen: Asan oxidizer,
Nitrogen: Applications where oxidation needs to be kept to a minimum. Not as efficient as oxygen on steels, but provides a much cleaner edge on stainless steel.
