Laser Cutting Services
Laser cutting is now one of the most widely used manufacturing processes in the world. It is a very fast production process that allows you to check your prototype parts and components for fit, form, and function before moving into full production. High end laser cutting technologies are utilized for industrial manufacturing applications, schools, small businesses and hobbyists. Laser cutting can cut and create parts and components to extremely tight tolerances. Custom fabric laser cutting is useful for many applications and is especially beneficial for prototyping.
Precision Custom Laser Cutting Advantages
Custom fabric laser cutting can save you time and money over other cutting methods. The precision levels and edge quality achieved with laser cutting machines are better than traditional cutting methods, as the laser beam will not wear during the laser cutting process. Laser cutting technology also enables us to cut complex shapes without the need for tooling and at a similar or faster speed than other cutting methods. Laser cutting also allows us to cut small diameter holes with complex detail and good edge quality in either sheet, plate, tube or box section. Other benefits of precision laser cutting, include:
- Saves Time & Money - We can save you valuable time and effort in the design stages by delivering prototypes quickly, so you can perform any necessary tests before moving on to the next phase of production.
- Multiple Part Options - We can create several parts with the same dimensions and specifications that are manufactured from different materials, allowing you to test each variation to see which is best for your design.
- Precision Testing - Our precision laser cut parts give you the opportunity to test the true dimensions of your part to assess any problem areas and make design changes in a timely manner.
- Design Change Options - We can easily reprogram our laser cutting machines for any design changes you deem necessary, this allows for the delivery of another prototype component in a timely manner. With Fabri-Tech’s laser cutting services, it’s possible to take your products from prototype to the final design in just a few days.
Custom Laser Cutting Process
Precision fabric laser cutting is accomplished by using the direct output of a high-powered optical laser. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control.) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.
In addition, Fabri-Tech’s CO2 laser cutters are fully programmable, which enables us to adjust all levels of our laser cutting system. We can then direct the machines to make the necessary cuts in the order that best suits the part or component being manufactured. These state-of-the-art laser cutting machines deliver superior precision and control, and can be used on nearly any material we work with, including Nomex 410, Kapton insulation, and thermal management materials.
