Why Choose Our Laser Cutting Services in Michigan?
Laser cutting offers many advantages compared to conventional manufacturing cutting techniques such as plasma, flame and water jet. These advantages include flexibility, ease of automation, and higher quality. In recent years, laser speeds and laser beam quality have dramatically increased. As a result, laser cutting, which has historically been used for lower volume prototype applications, is now competing with more traditional higher volume manufacturing processes. Laser cutting is a flexible, cost effective, and higher quality alternative to metal die blanking for increasingly higher production volumes.
Laser cutting provides a clean cut required to meet the manufacturer’s specifications and the speed necessary to meet the volume requirements in a cost effective way. In addition, laser cutting greatly reduces the tooling cost for most projects. Furthermore, certain industry sectors are increasingly adopting hot stamping, tube and hydroform metal processing, which cannot be fully processed without laser cutting.
