Piercing On The Fly
To accomplish this kind of cut, the machine and the numeric control must be capable of turning the laser on and off, as well as being precisely positioned at a certain point within a minimum time interval (fractions of a second). To do this, the material thickness must be fine enough to be drilled without any activation time, a process known as “piercing on the fly.”
This cutting mode is useful for certain jobs that involve parts with many interior holes, in which the cutting movements are alternated with short empty movements. In these cases, the machining time is considerably reduced, with a subsequent increase in productivity.
