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
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.
