When two technologically advanced mechanical tools are pitted against each other, it becomes an intriguing sort of boxing match. In a recent article, Cutting Edge Laser pits laser cutters against bandsaws to determine which is the best tool for metal cutting projects.

“In it’s most basic form,” the article reads, “A bandsaw is a continuous band of metal lined with teeth along one edge that rides around two large rotating wheels.” Laser cutters use high-powered laser beams to splice cleanly through sheets or tubes of metal.
After describing what a bandsaw is and how it functions, the article proceeds to explain the advantages of laser cutters over bandsaw technology.
Because a bandsaw uses a blade to cut the metal, as opposed to a stream of light, it’s precision and versatility are limited by the width of the blade and it’s kerf as well as the complicated procedure required to cut shapes out of the interior of a piece of metal.
Hence, the article emphasizes the fact that, “Laser cutters are far better at completing intricate, customized products and tasks than bandsaws.”
In conclusion, the article makes the point that, “While bandsaws can do a great job, we prefer the laser cutter’s versatility and precision, which allow us to complete intricate, complex, and customized products for our customers in short order, without the hassle of saw blades and their associated maintenance issues.”
