Lasers are used for a number of purposes in the metal processing industry. Generally, manufacturers use lasers to cut metals like steel, aluminum and other raw materials. With the help of pure nitrogen gas, lasers can completely transform the way your company does business by allowing you to increase production in a fraction of the time, yet, with higher accuracy than ever before. Since nitrogen gas plays such an integral role in metal manufacturing, it’s time for plant owners to eliminate bulk storage systems in favour of an on-site nitrogen generator. Whereas bulk systems are unreliable and affect your bottom line, nitrogen generation systems provide a sustainable approach to providing this invaluable gas.
Traditionally, oxygen has been used as an assist gas but nitrogen gas offers several more advantages when it comes to cutting metals. Take a look at 6 key reasons why nitrogen generators should be used for precision laser cutting services:
At Compressed Gas Technologies Inc, we recommend using Membrane or PSA nitrogen generators for all your laser cutting needs. An on-site nitrogen generator can help you avoid costly problems that can arise as a result of cutting with oxygen. Since nitrogen gas does not react to high temperatures, using it as an assist gas to blow away molten materials from the cutting site will ensure that you are left with clean edges that do not require any further action, saving you time and resources. Producing your own nitrogen on-site with one of our industrial nitrogen generators is a simple, reliable and cost-effective solution that will help you regain control over your gas consumption and ultimately, your business.
