Custom Laser Cutting Service
Our Custom Laser Cutting Capability is: up to ¾" Mild Steel, 3/8" Stainless Steel, ¼" Aluminum
We are proud to announce that in the Fall of 2012 we upgraded to a newer, more powerful laser cutting machine: a Mazak 2500 Super Turbo Laser is now in its new home at Astro. This laser cutting machine is equipped with a load/unload system for even more cost-effective laser cutting services and ability to operate lights out. Mazak lasers are "Built for performance, reliability and efficiency when cutting plate and sheet metal". They are known to be the work-horses of laser cutting. We are excited about offering more to our customers in terms of the thickness of metals we can laser cut, and the volume of laser work we can produce. For those that need more than just laser cut parts, we still offer in-house fabrication services; forming, punching, machining, welding, and metal finishing.
Benefits of Laser Cutting
Laser cutting is an extremely efficient way to produce complex flat metal shapes that are required by manufactures in a large variety of industries in quantities of one to several thousand. Coupled with the CNC software, Radan, used to program the parts, we produces high quality cuts and complex shapes while maximizing sheet use with computerized nesting of parts. Machine damage to the parts is virtually zero due to the fact that there is no mechanical contact with the metal being cut thus parts are produced with clean edges requiring little or no finishing. Laser cutting is a much more precise cutting method than plasma cutting, and is much faster and more efficient than water-jet cutting for gauge sheet metal. Laser cutting combined with the press brakes and other metal fabrication services allows us to produce complete parts all under one roof.
You can expect high quality repeatable parts, no edge damage, fast turn-around, all at a competitive price when you order your laser cut metal parts from Astro.
