Challenges in Laser Cutting Copper

Copper is a highly reflective element. This made the cutting process difficult with conventional CO2 lasers because the laser beam reflects off the surface before the copper can absorb its energy. For this reason, manufacturers and fabricators chose alternative methods like water jets and stamping copper. However, innovations in fiber laser technology have made fiber laser machines ideal for this application. With a shorter wavelength, tighter focus, and greater power density, fiber lasers have become the best solution for cutting highly reflective materials like copper and brass.
