Laser cutting is one of the most crucial services in industrial applications that require precise and efficient material cutting. Laser cutting is used widely across metal fabrication, electronics manufacturing, automotive manufacturing, and more to produce prototypes and mass-produced parts. The process offers several advantages, including high precision, minimal material waste, and compatibility with a wide range of materials.

Metalspun Products Co., Inc. provides metal spinning and fabrication solutions to suit your projects. Laser cutting is one of the secondary services we offer to ensure you receive high-quality, precision parts.

Laser-Cutting Services Explained

The laser cutting process uses a laser beam to cut, mark, or engrave a material. A motion control and optics system guides the computer numerical control (CNC) laser along the predetermined pattern set out by the G-code, making the required cut into the workpiece. The focused laser beam melts, burns, or vaporizes the material, leaving a high-quality finished edge.

Laser cutting services provide a quick, cost-effective way to cut materials with a laser and produce intricate, complex parts and products with precision and high-quality finishes. Today, several industries, including aerospace, medical, and automotive, prefer laser cutting services due to the level of precision and quality they can achieve.

Laser Cutting Services Benefits

Laser cutting services offer many advantages compared to traditional manufacturing techniques:

  • Enhanced cutting precision and accuracy: The laser cutting machine produces a focused laser beam to allow precise cutting at minimal cost and high speed.
  • Better quality cut edges: Laser cutting creates smooth, high-quality edges without requiring secondary processing.
  • Narrower kerf widths: Laser systems can focus the beam to a very fine point, allowing for precise cutting. The smaller the diameter of the laser beam, the narrower the kerf width will be.
  • Limited material waste, contamination, and distortion: Laser cutting is a non-contact process, which means there is no physical tool wear or direct contact with the material. This reduces the risk of contamination and damage to the material being cut while minimizing material waste and distortion. Heat-affected zones (HAZ) in the material are also very limited compared to other methods that use heat to shape the workpiece.
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs: Since laser cutting is a non-contact cutting process, there is minimal wear and tear on cutting equipment compared to traditional methods. Ultimately, this reduces the need for equipment maintenance, repair, or replacements.
  • Improved operator safety: Laser cutting technology incorporates multiple safety features to enhance operator safety and minimize the risk of accidents and exposure to laser hazards. These features may include interlock systems, emergency stop buttons, and enclosures.

Applications of Laser Cutting Services

Laser-cutting services meet the needs of several applications across various industries. Some of the most common applications of laser cutting include:

  • Laser marking: Lasers can help imprint unique identification (UID) numbers on products and parts. This enhances traceability should there be a need to recall products.
  • Laser cutting: Laser cutting is increasingly used to cut workpieces into complex shapes and designs, which requires optimized accuracy and precision.
