A laser cutter is an expensive piece of equipment, one that you might just be able to go without.
Not all cutting jobs require the use of a laser cutter, in fact many manufacturers and businesses that need cuts to do be done seldom use a laser cutter. The primary reason for this is because laser cutting in general is a niche task.
Laser cutting leaves a very clean finish to a cut when completed. This is fantastic for jobs where a high quality finish to the product is of great concern, but not all jobs require such a fine finish.
If your business already utilises a laser cutter the best way to assess if it makes the best use out of it is to look at the quality of your product. Does the finished product reflect the investment of the machine?
If your business is considering making use of one then assess in detail if it is required for the job it will be employed for.
