UV, CO2, and Fiber lasers are ideal for cutting custom brackets and shims from many types of sheet metal – alloy steel, aluminum alloys, brass, carbon steel, molybdenum, stainless steel, titanium, platinum, and tool steel. Laser cutting greatly simplifies the design and manufacturing process to produces intricate detail and very sharp corners.
Stainless steel and most alloys are considered ideal candidates for the laser cutting process. High-power CO2, UV, and fiber lasers utilize assist gases to create dross-free edges without deburring. The laser process minimizes the HAZ along the cut edge, thereby helping the material to maintain its corrosion resistance.
