Laser Cutting

laser cutting close up

As part of our precision sheet metal fabrication capabilities, at Fab-Tech, Inc. we offer laser cutting services for the production of quality parts and fabricated assemblies. We’re equipped with an advanced flying optic laser cutter that is one of the most efficient machines on the market today and allows us to process a wide variety of materials with low operating costs. The versatility of this system makes it possible to produce parts of all shapes and sizes that have finely detailed features and complex curves and angles. With 4000 watts of power, we can cut through up to 0.50” mild steel and 0.25” thick stainless and aluminum. A high-precision motion control system and state-of-the-art optics enable this machine to produce clean cuts with close tolerance precision.

We process sheet material measuring up to 60.0” in width x 120.0” in length. Nesting software combined with a focused beam that makes narrow kerf cuts enable us to maximize material yield. Programmable operation allows for an exceptional degree of accuracy and part-to-part consistency while nitrogen-assist cutting produces clean, striation-free and burr-free edges that improve the appearance of the workpiece and minimize the need for secondary finishing operations.

As a solutions-oriented metal fabrication company, we offer a number of additional services, including welding, hardware installation, and finishing to meet your end-to-end production requirements. With our ability to perform these secondary processes in-house, we maintain control of quality and can guarantee timely delivery of your finished goods.

Laser Configuration

Flying Optics

Flying optics lasers feature a stationary table and a cutting head (with a laser beam) that moves over the work piece in both of the horizontal

dimensions. Flying-optics cutters keep the workpiece stationary during processing and often don't require material clamping.
