Why Choose Laser Machining Over Traditional CNC Machining?
Traditional CNC machining that uses a spindle and cutting tool for cutting. Laser machining replaces the physical router or drill bit with the laser beam itself. Traditional CNC router tools prevent sharp internal corners and have a tendency to ‘throw’ the part.
Laser routing or contouring can create near perfect 90 degree cuts and hold very close radial tolerances. Laser produced edges are as sharp and square as your design requires. Because there is no physical contact to the part, the laser will never ‘throw’ the part or degrade in cut quality due to tooling wear.
Can You Help Choose Materials For My Laser Cut Design?
If you’re unsure which material is best for your component or laser cut parts, our expert laser manufacturing consultants can help you choose from a variety of materials we have in stock ready for immediate use. If we don’t have the materials our clients need on site, we can source anything our lasers can cut or use customer provided materials as well.
Customer-owned material can be stored/stocked on-site to reduce lead times and material costs.
Laser Cutting CAD or Data Requirements
CAD system integration and custom file converters enable flexible, laser manufacturing from customer-provided data. Although most file types are accepted, the preferred file types are Gerber, DXF, or other 2D formats.
