It is obvious that the way laser cutting is applied today has took place after a significant chain of events and a number of experiments that's the reason why its uses are extensive. The benefits of these new technological advancements are not only an increased capability of the laser cutting machines, but also the novelty in their new applications in addition to increased efficiency in operating and decrease in the costs of operations.


This journal will cover some of the most notable technological advancements made and its influence in the industrial laser cutting sector.


Fiber Laser

One notable advancement would be the introduction of the fiber laser which gives greater efficiency, requires less maintenance and has a longer life expectancy.

The utilization of automated loading and unloading systems and robotics not only has the ability to increase the speed of production; they also have a direct impact on the precision and repeatability component of the system. By integrating laser cutting machines with factory-wide management systems and IoT devices, real-time monitoring and control are possible. This allows for more efficient and productive manufacturing processes.

Software Algorithms

Software algorithms and control systems are some of the many factors that have attributed to the great evolution of CNC cutting machines. One of the roles that software algorithms plays in the evolution of the CNC cutting machine is the ability to allow more complex cutting patterns which have proved an ease and possible in the today’s world run by internet. Nesting and material wastage is an area where the software algorithm in the CNC cutting machine plays a significant role in minimizing the cost of production.


The increased laser power enables the cutting of faster and the ability to cut thicker and tougher materials.

Material Handling Systems

Revisions in material handling systems have caused operations to run in a more efficient manner in addition to fewer actions having to be educated in the loading and unloading process. The combination of these attributes has led to the major advancements in technology of the laser cutting industry over the years.


These new way of thinking about the subject has the chance to enter into the industry at point and completely reshape this industry and the way to think about manufacturing. These new and unique thoughts can provide every manufacturer the things they need to essentially advance the way they do business, and the industry as a whole by being smarter more productive, having the capabilities to produce that would have been unheard of previously, and or even the manufacturing landscape might even be changed because of these new ways of approaching manufacturing and or just the pure need to survive to put out new product.
