Laser cutting

Laser cutting is one of FEA INC’s Sheet Metal profiling processes that directs a high-power laser through optics to cut materials for industrial applications. Laser cutting is both more precise and less energy-consuming than plasma cutting, but has an upper threshold on the thickness of the material being cut. FEA INC’s Manufacturing Partner Network offers both Fiber and CO2 lasers that can cut a number of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and exotic alloys. CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser excels at cutting, engraving, and boring metals, while Fiber laser is a good option for thicker materials. For sheet and plate metal thicker than 4 inches, see our waterjet cutting services.

Our custom laser cutting services offer a cost-effective and on-demand solution for your manufacturing needs. Sheet metal fabrication services range from low-volume prototype to high-volume production runs.

Advantages of laser cutting

  • Durability
    Similar to CNC machining, sheet metal processes produce highly durable parts well-suited for both functional prototypes and end-use production.
  • Scalability
    All sheet metal parts are built on-demand and with lower setup costs compared to CNC Machining. Depending on your needs, order as little as a single prototype up to 10,000 production parts.
  • Material Selection
    Choose from a variety of sheet metals across a wide range of strength, conductivity, weight, and corrosion-resistance.
  • Custom Finishes
    Select from a variety of finishes, including anodizing, plating, powder coating, and painting.
  • Rapid Turnaround
    Combining the latest cutting, bending and punching with automated technologies, FEA INC provides instant sheet quotes and completed parts in as little 12 business days.
