Understanding Hybrid Laser Cutting Machines

A hybrid laser cutting machine is an automated system capable of cutting a wide range of materials. These include metallic substances such as stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, manganese steel, alloy steel, brass, aluminum, spring steel, titanium alloy, galvanized sheet, aluminized sheet, and other alloy sheets. The machine is equally adept at processing non-metallic materials like acrylic, fabric, textile, leather, MDF, plywood, bamboo, wood, paper, epoxy resin, and plastic. If you’re seeking a versatile system that can cut and engrave both metal and non-metal equally well, this multi-functional laser system with multi-cutting capability is the perfect solution.

Working Principle

The hybrid laser cutting machine employs a follow-up cutting head for most cuts of metals and non-metals. This cutting head, unlike ordinary ones, can process both metallic and non-metallic materials. During the cutting process, the cutting head adjusts automatically in response to the undulations of the sheet being cut. This ensures a constant distance between the focusing lens and the sheet metal, maintaining a steady focal length. The machine includes a high-efficiency CW-5200 or CW-6000 industrial water chiller for 10,000 hours of laser tube life time. A motorized up-and-down table facilitates the handling of materials of various thicknesses. The machine also features high-quality square linear guide-ways and a steel framework for ultimate accuracy and stability. An optional motorized height-adjustable working area and highly visible red laser cross alignment marks simplify the positioning of your items.

Hybrid laser cutting operates by setting the relative movement between the cutting gun and the material along a specific track. The focusing mirror in the cutting gun concentrates the laser beam on the material’s surface, melting it. Concurrently, a compressed gas coaxial with the beam blows away the melted material, completing the cutting of the specified shape on the material’s surface. This method offers excellent incision quality, narrow incision width, high precision, fast cutting, and safe and clean operation. It is currently an advanced processing method for plate cutting.


Hybrid laser cutting machines are automatic cutting tools that employ carbon dioxide lasers or radio frequency lasers to cut metals and non-metals. They are used for non-contact rapid cutting, hollowing, and punching of various materials. These machines find applications in diverse fields such as sheet metal fabrication, kitchenware and bathroom, advertising signs, lighting hardware, electrical cabinets, auto parts, machinery and equipment, electrical equipment, precision parts, woodworking, clothing, gifts, arts & crafts.
