Metal Laser Cutting Services
Technology continues to drive improvement and innovation in modern metal working and metal laser cutting capabilities are a much needed service in today’s marketplace. Classic Sheet Metal’s, metal laser cutting capabilities allow expedited turnaround times for sheet metal prototypes and the rapid production of complex items that require precise dimensions, shapes and cuts.
Laser cutting has revolutionized the way that sheet metal prototypes are made. This technology has brought about a seamless method of fabricating flat blanks and CAD databases can be converted to heet metal laser cutting programs without any human interpretation. Our software allows the database to be transferred directly to machine codes and human error is virtually eliminated.
Often after receipt of a pilot run order, the same geometry that produced the CNC laser cutting code for the prototype can be converted to a punch or punch/laser combo program or even to design hard tooling for mass production; all designed to reduce cost and expedite delivery.

Metal Laser Cutting Defined
Metal Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser programmed by a computer to cut materials, which is used for industrial manufacturing applications. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high power laser at the material to be cut. The material then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas leaving an edge with a high quality surface finish. Our metal laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material.
The typical CO2 laser used for cutting sheet metal produces an ultraviolet light beam focused down to a .007 diameter at the point of cutting. The light produced is invisible to the human eye, but the heat generated at the point of focus is hotter than the surface of the sun. Assist gases remove the ash with pressures up to 150 lbs per square inch.
