Are you looking for a way to produce small batches of parts? Are you looking to form an intricate part design? You should look at Hyde Custom Fabrication and laser cutting of your parts.
Laser cutting is a leading edge technology that uses a laser beam to cut various materials, and is commonly found in industrial manufacturing applications. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high power laser beam at the material to be cut. The material then either melts, burns, vaporizes away or is blown away by a jet of gas, thus achieving the cut. The process is capable of holding close tolerances and leaves an edge with a high quality surface finish.
Laser cutting is great for materials that are very difficult or even impossible to cut by more traditional means. Laser cutting is also great for cutting intricate shapes that are not always possible by conventional cutting methods.
Two significant advantages of laser cutting over mechanical cutting are the lack of physical contact (there is no cutting edge touching the work piece) and the repetitive precision of the cut (the laser doesn’t wear out). Also, there is a reduced chance for work piece warping due to the small heat-affected zone offered by laser cutting. Laser cut parts often can be ready for assembly with no secondary operations.
Custom Fabrication offers you the ability to take full advantage of a state-of-the-art CO2 laser cutting system that offers accurate precision cuts in any shape/configuration required across a wide array of steels and non-ferrous materials. The system feeds sheet steel – measuring up to 4′ x 8′, and up to 1/2″ maximum thickness on mild steel – into the laser. You can have your parts cut made from mild steel up to 1/2″, stainless steel up to 3/8″, and aluminum up to 1/4″ thick with dimensional tolerances of +/-.004″.
Utilizing CAD/CAM computer design stations, Hyde Custom Fabrication can create your part’s laser program from surface data, blue prints, templates, sketches or reverse engineering. “Nesting software” allows for the maximum yield of parts per sheet of raw material. This optimized material utilization reduces scrap and minimizes cut time, both of which ultimately save you money.
If you need custom laser cut parts, send a drawing of the part(s) you need cut (.dfx format preferred) or a sample part which can be drawn up. Please also include the material you desire and the quantity needed. Once we have this information, Hyde Custom Fabrication will prepare a quotation for you.
Now you’ve found a dependable source to serving your laser cutting needs!
