Laser cutting is an essential part of industrial manufacturing. Not only has the process become a valuable tool for hobbyists and the small business sector, but it’s also proven essential to stamped metal manufacturing as well. The popularity of this type of cutting is in large part due to the high level of precision that it offers, even on complex parts. Other advantages include high quality edges, low lead times, increased energy efficiency, and reduced workpiece contamination.
This technology is commonly used to support a variety of industries; the automotive industry, for example, uses laser cutting to mark several internal components. In the medical industry, laser cutting is used to mark parts for tractability and to manufacture medical devices. Laser cutting equipment is also commonly used to support military and aerospace endeavors.
In a continued effort to provide our customers with the highest quality manufacturing processes, American Industrial Company has recently added laser-cutting technology to the list of services we offer. Additionally, our team also offers in-house design, reverse engineering, and rapid prototyping services in conjunction with laser die cutting.
Our laser cut parts are tailor made to our customers’ specifications and industry-specific standards. Additionally, laser cut parts can be made with high levels of complexity and precision from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, steel, brass, and copper.
At American Industrial Company, we use the FiberCAB44, one of the most advanced precision laser cutting systems currently on the market. The FiberCAB44 system uses fiber optic technology to focus the laser beam. It offers increased energy efficiency and cutting speeds, as well as excellent precision and cleaner cut edges, compared to traditional CO2 lasers. The FiberCAB44 system also allows for tolerances as small as ±0.002” to be achieved.
The FiberCAB44 laser provides 3 kW of power and can cut through a variety of materials up to ¼” thick. The precision and speed of this system dramatically decreases lead times and reduces material scrap, especially on thin materials. Because of this, the capabilities at American Industrial Company provide customers with efficiency and low cost, high quality products.
Here at American Industrial Company, our custom capabilities serve a variety of industries, including food, appliance, automotive, construction, hardware, and recreational.
Examples of some of our projects include: a spring steel stamped jaw assembly for the tooling industry, a metal stamped latch assembly for the power tool industry, and a shallow draw golf ball stencil for the recreational industry.
