Sheet Metal Laser Cutting
We use 6,000w and 8,000w fiber laser cutting machines to combine high performance with cut quality that produces a perfect, burr-free result. We can cut parts in a variety of metals up to 1 inch thick.
Fiber lasers offer several advantages over CO2 – faster cutting speeds, greater reliability, lower operating costs and less maintenance. This means increased savings for our customers.
Our advanced process is ideal for high volume production and offers the ability to upload prints and DXF files directly into our laser cutting system.
With automated load and unload capabilities, our machine utilization rate is increased by 100%. While most of our competitors are limited to just one shift for production, we can run your parts around the clock.
FabMetals can quickly cut and ship laser-cut blanks to you, but why stop there? As a full-service metal fabrication shop, we offer a wide range of forming, finishing, and assembly operations under the same roof.
Many painting and coating applications require edge rounding in order to provide a more even coating at the edges of the part.
We can add part numbers, weld prep, or custom markings to your laser cut pieces.
Need your parts formed? We offer a wide range of best-in-class machines under the same roof.
Line graining adds a directional pattern and grained finish to steel or aluminum parts. Graining removes factory defects in the metal such as scratches, mill scale, and surface porosity.
We have a full range of standard and metric thread sizes available. Not sure what you need? Our engineers will work with you to determine the best fastener for the job.
For creating a smooth, polished surface on delicate and small components, we use vibratory finishing.
What is Laser Cutting?
Laser Cutting Basics
Laser cutting is a sheet metal fabrication process that uses a focused, high-powered beam of light to cut metal into shapes and designs. Laser machines are very precise and can cut complex parts without custom tooling.
How Does Fiber Laser Cutting Work?
Fiber laser light is created by a bank of diodes, then channeled and amplified through a fiber optic cable. Light creation is 200% more efficient than a CO2 laser, without the use of expensive optical mirrors. Laser cutters use Computer Numeric Control (CNC) and are fully automated, reducing setup time and material waste.
Benefits of Laser Cutting
Laser cutting is a fast, no-contact process, so there is minimal damage to the material being cut. Fiber lasers have low operating and maintenance costs, and can be utilized in a wide range of applications.
Lead times vary depending on production scheduling and the complexity of your project. Be sure to address your rush or emergency needs with our team.
Yes! Fiber lasers have a distinct advantage in this area over CO2 lasers and other cutting methods.
Yes, we can. Use our Request a Quote form and we'll provide you with a custom quote.
Our standard tolerance is +/-.005″. Actual tolerance will depend on the material, thickness and completed part size.
