Improved cut quality on nonmetals, especially woods. Reduces charring by pushing smoke and debris down and away from the cut area. Reduces cut width with focused air stream that pushes smoke and debris away so cutting process performs faster, thus reducing the heat affected area of the cut. Saves time on cut parts clean-up. With less smoke and debris settling on the face, side, and bottom of the cut, clean-up time is reduced or eliminated. Easy installation by nontechnical folks. Simple instructions to install. Fits standard 2 inch focus length lens (lens not included) The Mahoney brand focus nozzle assembly fits the Epilog Laser Legend series products, including the Epilog Helix, the Epilog Mini 18, Mini 24, and Epilog 24TT.  Product package includes (1) Focus nozzle piece that fits standard 2.5 inch lens (lens not included); (2) Air hose with fittings; (3) Installation tools x 2. (4) Printed instructions

Industry Leaders recommending Laser Nozzles

Click here for Synrad (metal tube laser manufacturer) to see their recommendations for nozzle air/gas pressure to make the best possible laser cuts.

 

Click here to read "The Fabricator".  These techniques apply to nonmetals cutting, even though the target audience cuts metals.  Read: "Setup time for a laser can be lengthy when preparing to cut unfamiliar materials. Nozzle size, power, optical focal length, assist gas, gas pressure, speed, and focal length can all influence the process. These parameters are so important to the process that if they are not set correctly, the material cannot be cut."

Click here for article on Laser cutting of different polymeric plastics (PE, PP and PC) by a CO 2 laser beam.   The authors say, "In the nozzle employed for cutting plastics, the gas jet orifice has a 0.8 mm diameter. Its function is to discharge gas coaxially to the laser beam. The extremely small size of the orifice ensures a thin, punctiform and efficacious jet of gas that makes it possible to obtain the narrowest possible kerf width and, simultaneously, high operating speed thanks to the rapid removal of the molten material. The nozzle–sample distance was fixed at 1 mm, because at this distance it is possible to obtain an optimum gas jet convergence and pressure in the cutting channel."

 

 

Impractical for smaller machine laser engraving and cutting, however, the physics of laser cutting flow dynamics can be carried over from metals to plastics. In other words, failures in nice cuts on plastics can turn in to successes with the right nozzle and air pressure.  See these metal cutter industry leaders with their automatic nozzle changers.  Click for LVD.
