The right chemical composition, the good surface quality, the lack of rust, the good level of flatness, the low residual internal stresses make these steels highly suitable for laser cutting.
In LASER plates, the optimal cutting speed is approximately thirty percent higher than in standard steels.
This difference is even more significant in low thicknesses. The low content of silicon, manganese and carbon, as well as of impurities for phosphorous and sulphur, allow to obtain excellent finishes on the cut edges.
The lack of cutting defects increases cut precision and the range of possible applications.
