Laser Cutting Services
Laser cutting has been an integral part of metal fabrication at Astro for the past 20 years. We don’t have the fanciest, newest laser on the planet. Still, we offer laser cutting very competitively since replacing our old laser when we found a great buy on this workhorse, Mazak 2500, equipped with an auto load/unload system. We laser cut stainless steel and mild steel for OEM’s, food processing equipment, auger and conveyor parts, and more. Our custom laser cutting service quickly produces quality metal parts with smooth and clean edges. You can expect accurate parts and shipping usually within a week or less.

Our optimal cutting range is:

Mild steel is 18 gauge to 3/8 inch            Aluminum: .040 – .080
Stainless steel: 18 to 10 gauge       Sheet size max is 60 X 120”
Cutting tolerance within .005 or less depending on the part

Advantages of laser cutting that you can expect with Astro laser cut parts:

Sharp Edge Definition

Small Kerf Width

Low Distortion

No Tool Marks On The Part

Narrow Heat Affected Area

No Mechanical Force On The Part

Cut Complex Shapes, Slots, Holes, Corners, With Repeatability

Auto Load and Unload Allows High Volume With Minimal Manpower


Besides cutting metal, styrofoam, plastic, galvaneel, and wood are other materials we have cut. We can also cut thicker materials than listed here, but these are the optimum for our machine.  Our guys are good at figuring out the weird stuff, and also get the “regular” jobs done quickly.  Most parts cut burr-free, but on a thicker material, any burrs that may occur are hand-removed assuring only good parts to our clients.

We prefer a pdf to give a free quote, and can take dxf, dwg, step file, and igs files directly into our CAD software, Radan, to run the parts.

Being we offer complete metal fabrication services, we are a GREAT place from which to get your laser-formed parts.  With 3 press brakes and over a huge selection of tooling , we offer fast and accurate parts.
