Laser cutting is quickly becoming one of the most effective alternatives to many traditional metal cutting methods currently available. One of the greatest benefits is the high level of precision it offers. Laser cut edges are cleaner than those cut by more traditional methods, including turret-punch, waterjet, and laser die cutting. In fact, the edges are cut so precisely that no further operations (deburring, etc.) are necessary.
The level of exactitude offered by laser cutting also increases the level of complexity that can be formed and material savings (by reducing scrap). Additionally, such a level of precision and excellence is available at low costs and without increased run times.
Using a 3 kW YAG laser, American Industrial Company can seamlessly cut through cold-rolled steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, and copper up to ¼” thick. In order to achieve such an exact finish, we use the FiberCAB44, which utilizes fiber optic technology to focus on the laser beam, and is one of the most advanced systems on the market today. This results in a laser output with amplified beam strength and reduced spot size, creating even better precision and cleaner cut edges.
The machinery is able to increase cutting speeds and accuracy by using a combination of linear motor drives and robust precision grade linear gear drives. In addition, it offers increased energy efficiency, cutting speeds, higher precision, and cleaner cut edges compared to traditional CO2 lasers, as well as tolerance levels as low as ±0.002”.
At American Industrial Company, we take quality seriously and provide our customers with the highest quality of products. Our facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified, and both monitoring and inspection are performed on all runs to verify that all parts match the specifications and level of precision customers expect from American Industrial Company.
Additionally, our testing methods include non-destructive, destructive, and hardness testing. Monitoring and inspection methods include statistical process control (SPC), advanced metrology tracking systems (which ensure that measurement gauges are accurate and up-to-date, infra-red reflective lasers and fiber optics), and visual inspection tools, including a MicroVu optical camera system (an advanced tool designed specifically for the precision measurement of parts and assemblies).
At American Industrial Company, we provide customers with detailed documentation, including inspection reports.
We strive to provide precision services for the following industries: appliance, automotive, construction, dental, electrical, fastening, furniture, government and defense, hardware, heating and cooling, industrial, insert mold, lighting, marine, medical, power tools, solar and green buildings, and sporting goods.
