Types of Laser Cutting

The most appropriate laser cutting method depends on the material and the specific project details. Some of the most common methods for laser cutting include:

  • CO2 laser cutting
  • Fiber laser cutting

At Precision Waterjet & Laser, we specialize in CO2 laser cutting. This method uses a lens to focus CO2 laser beams on the surface of the workpiece.

Our Laser Cutting Capabilities

Our facility has multiple CO2 and Fiber laser cutters that incorporate specialized features such as flying optics, facilitating cuts along 2, 3, and 5 axes. We can cut workpieces in sizes up 96 inches by 240 inches. We can accommodate extremely thin sheets and thicker sheets up to 1 inch within tolerances of 0.002 inches.

While kerf varies based on the specific project details and tolerance requirements, we have carefully calibrated all of our laser cutting equipment to achieve the best possible tolerances even on extremely precise projects. We can configure our lasers to virtually any frequency, power, and speed, enabling us to cut highly complex components, detailed artwork, and much more.

We regularly provide laser cutting for industries such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Artwork
  • Automotive
  • Dental
  • Electronics
  • Jewelry
  • Medical
  • Renewable energy (solar)

Our Material Capabilities

Our laser cutting machinery is compatible with a variety of non-ferrous and ferrous metal materials, such as:

  • Aluminum
