Laser cutting metal sculptures show the beauty of art
September 7, 2021
In daily life, we often see such a sculpture in public squares, scenic spots, parks and other places, that is, the surface of the sculpture is hollow. The "hollow" on the surface of the sculpture is a form of expression of plastic art. The "opening" makes the sculpture more visually rich. Through the "opening", you can find more things or let the light and daylight form another landscape in the "opening".
The materials for making hollow sculptures include metal, composite materials, ceramics, glass, bamboo and wood, and so on. According to the needs of sculpting, some emphasize the expression of sculpting through hollowing, such as silhouette metal figure sculptures, landscapes, etc., to enrich the artistic effects of sculpting through hollowing.
Many hollowing processes of modern metal sculpture, wall decoration and installation art have been realized by CNC laser cutting machine. The laser beam of the laser cutting machine irradiates the surface of the workpiece to make the workpiece reach the melting point or boiling point. At the same time, the high-pressure gas coaxial with the beam blows away the molten or vaporized metal. As the beam moves relative to the workpiece, the material will finally form a slit. , So as to achieve the purpose of cutting.
Laser cutting processing is to replace the traditional mechanical knife with an invisible beam. It has the characteristics of high precision, fast cutting, not limited to cutting patterns, automatic typesetting, saving materials, smooth cuts, and low processing costs. It will be gradually improved or replaced. Traditional metal cutting process equipment.
The mechanical part of the laser cutter head has no contact with the workpiece, and will not scratch the surface of the workpiece during work; the laser cutting speed is fast, the incision is smooth and flat, and generally does not require subsequent processing; the cutting heat affected zone is small, the plate deformation is small, and the slit is narrow ( 0.1mm~0.3mm); The incision has no mechanical stress, no shearing burrs; high processing accuracy, good repeatability, and no damage to the surface of the material; CNC programming, can process any plan, and can cut large-format whole plates without Opening the mold saves time and economy.
