The honeycomb table panel is a table for laser cutting machines, the surface of which is composed of a honeycomb-like structure, usually made of aluminum or steel. Due to the presence of regular holes, this surface allows the laser to pass through the process, thus cutting the material more easily, while leaving gaps to escape the gases and particles generated during the cutting process.
There are numerous advantages to using a cellular workbench, etc., compared to using a flat workbench or other types of worksurfaces. First of all, the honeycomb structure can minimize the contact between the material to be cut and the working surface, reducing the risk of damage to the material itself; in addition, the honeycomb structure provides a solid support for the material to be processed, preventing the material surface from being damaged during the laser cutting process. bent or deformed.

Another important feature of the Honeycomb Working Table is that it helps to maintain a good circulation of gases that accumulate in the working area during cutting, preventing combustion particles and burning slag from adhering to the wood surface, improving quality and reducing the risk of damage to the wood itself. In addition, the honeycomb structure can also reduce the thermal effect when laser cutting: In fact, when the laser hits the material, the heat generated can cause the material to deform, ripple or burn, and the honeycomb structure can reduce the thermal effect because it allows the heat to flow around the material. Dissipates evenly and cools much faster than with a closed base. However, it requires regular cleaning to ensure the holes are not clogged and gas circulation is optimal. Finally, the honeycomb working table is fully open, and the bottom can be equipped with a suction system to remove the combustion gas generated by the laser during the cutting process, prevent the smoke and particles from spreading into the environment, and keep it clean and clean. Operator's safe work area.

The honeycomb table can be used for engraving or cutting a wide variety of materials including glass, wood, paper, textiles and metal, as its aluminum structure does not react with these materials. In addition, due to its perfectly flat surface, the engraving results are also improved, since the laser beam manages to keep equidistant on all points of the material to be engraved.
If the honeycomb table is not used, there may be some negative effects during the laser cutting process. First of all, the material to be cut is in direct contact with the surface of the table, and due to insufficient heat dissipation, it will increase the risk of damage to the part of the material that is in contact with the table. Second, charred particles and slag from the cutting process can accumulate on the work surface, damaging the surface and causing permanent stains. For these reasons, it is always recommended to use a honeycomb table as a support and work surface for the workpiece, avoiding the laser beam from coming into contact with your table. Plus, when a honeycomb breaks from a lot of work, it can be replaced with relative ease: certainly a lot more convenient than having to replace the table.
For these reasons, a honeycomb table is one of the best accessories for those using laser engraving and cutting machines, as it improves the quality of laser cuts, reduces damage to the cut material, and increases the overall efficiency of the process.
