Laser Cutting

Our Mitsubishi Laser Processing System is now operational. We have a 16 shelf tower that is capable of holding 96,000 pounds of raw material and programmable over/under unload carts that can handle 22,000 pounds of material before we have to intervene. The system can load, cut and unload 5'x10' sheets of metal, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week largely unattended. The NX is Mitsubishi's fastest laser system using a 4000 watt resonator to drive a flying optics bed. Because the material does not move while being cut, it minimizes scratches and reduces the need for micro-joints often eliminating the need for post processing. For information on this service give our President a call or come in for a free tour.

(1) Rating: we can cut this thickness continuously in an operational environment in full automation mode, 24 hours a day.
(2) Maximum thickness: we can cut this thickness with an operator watching for overheating, edge quality, burr quality. Our success depends on the part geometry, material composition and desired finish.
