Laser Cut precision parts for a wide range of industries. Our variable output Mazak laser is ideal for cutting from qty 1 to 1,000. Laser cutting metal produces an accurate part even with complex shapes and no requirement for special tooling. Our laser is fully automated to switch between the different materials with in our laser processing capabilities and has a two pallet shuttle. These feature allow us to be highly efficient because next to no down time is required.
To complement our high quality laser we purchased the best nesting software which insures your parts are cut accurately and efficiently. Many of our nests run with over a 90% material utilization and this includes the loss of material in holes as a scrap. We can easily cut and etch your steel and stainless parts in single setup. This combined efficiency of machine and software allows us to laser cut for our clients at the best pricing with out compromise.
We can laser cut mild steel to ¾” thick. Our mild steel laser cutting includes but is not limited to A36, 50W, Astm 516 Gr 70, Astm 386 gr 22, astm 1008, CRS and HRPO. We stock steel sheet from 20ga to ¾” to be laser cut. We typically offer nitrogen assisted laser cutting up to 14ga but can extend this range all the way to 3/16 / 7ga laser cut steel. We typically use oxygen as our assist gas for cutting carbon steel from 0.100 to ¾”.
Using nitrogen for the assist gas on the laser when cutting steel eliminates the oxide layer that should needs to be removed prior to powder coating or paint. When we are laser cutting galvanized, stainless and aluminum we always uses nitrogen for the assist gas.
We can laser cut stainless up to 3/8” thick. Majority of our stainless steel is grade 304 with a 2B finish. We either stock or quickly can obtain and cut any thickness from 20ga to 3/8” stainless. The common grades of stainless are 304 /316 they are generally readily available. We have also used our laser to cut several far less common grades including Hastelloy X.
At Seaborn we laser cut a lot of aluminum sheet, because aluminum fabrication is a specialty of ours. We offer laser cut aluminum up to ¼” thick and stock aluminum sheet ranging from 0.05” to ¼” at all times.
Laser cutting galvanized steel is viable option because of today’s modern laser cutting techniques. The effect on the galvanized steel at the edge laser cut is not noticeable to the eye. We laser cut tons galvanized G90 sheet each year. We can cut up to 3/16” thick galvanized sheet. We stock Galvanized G90 sheet ready to fabricate from 20ga to 10ga.
Typically we can laser cut holes as little as half of the material thickness in all materials with our laser. Other factors such as distance to edge and hole density can effect this ability. We have cut holes as small 0.200 through ¾” steel.
The quality of our laser cut edges we believe to be second to none. Our highly skilled laser programmers and cnc laser operators insure you get the very best part quality.
We offer the following additional services to complement our laser work, forming / brake work, CNC Machining, Welding of aluminum, mild steel & stainless and in house powder coat to complete your parts. Contact us today to get your laser cutting started.
