Laser Cutting Systems

These machines use either gas laser (CO2) or solid-state laser (YAG, disc and fiber) technology to generate a focused, precise pulsed laser beam or continuous wave laser beam that pierces through a wide variety of materials in flat sheet, tube, channel or structural shapes, then essentially melts the material away as it follows a programmed path for rapidly cutting holes, shapes and fine features, marking and engraving, leaving a highly accurate and smooth finish.

More Than One Way to Skin a Part: Where Fabrication and Machining Overlap

Don’t take the “hard limits” between machining and fabrication for granted. Their areas of overlap offer tremendous potential for savings. If you manufacture parts using both processes, take a second look at some of them to evaluate whether they could be produced more economically with a little sheet metal know-how and some outside-the-box thinking.

A Look Ahead

With Video

As the metal fabrication business remains strong, watch for more shops to adopt digitization, the principles of Industry 4.0 and integrated process flow as they move toward smaller batch sizes, shorter lead times, high-mix parts to compete – and to address the lack of skilled labor.
