Best Laser Cutting Services Serving Ontario
For a step up in precision and edge finish at very reasonable cost, laser cutting is the answer.
The CIM Metals Inc. Mitsubishi 4,000 watt CO2 laser is five times more precise than the micro plasma process, holding tolerances to +/- 0.006” (+/- 0.15mm). Machine bed size is 120” x 60” (3.05m x 1.53m). You can work with thicker standard steels, up to 1” (25.4mm) mild steel. Stainless steel is limited to 0.5” (12.7mm) and aluminum to 0.25” (6.4mm) thickness.
If you’re in a hurry, the laser cutter can race through 0.02” (0.5mm) sheet at up to 600” (15.25m) per minute. This technology is ideal for short production runs where mid-level precision is required. Furthermore, the cut parts don’t require any secondary edge finishing operations.
New uses for laser processing are constantly emerging. CIM Metals Inc. offers etching, i.e. a superficial burning of the plate surface without full penetration. It’s a proven means of creating very durable marking on metal plate.
