ABOUT Laser Cutting
Technology: Laser Cutting Services are machining services which use computer controlled high power laser beams focused on workpieces whose resulting heat energy melts or vaporizes material. Any resulting molten material is blown away by pressurized gas during the cutting process creating a high quality edge.

Advantages: Able to cut virtually any material including surface coated materials.Precise, clean cutting and often does not require further processing. Ideal for carbon and stainless steel, sheet metal, and intricate patterns. A fast, repeatable and highly accurate process which is ideal for high production runs. Not recommended for reflective materials like copper.
