Laser Cutting

Laser cutting technology is used to cut thin gauge plastics, open and close cell foam, compressed fiber, and adhesives. Laser cutting works by directing a tightly focused laser beam onto the material to be cut and can be used for individual cut-through parts as well as kiss-cutting processes that leave parts on an adhesive release liner. Laser cutting offers advantages of tight tolerances, very small feature size, and quick turn features. It is a suitable approach for miniature or large parts and for prototype or production quantities and offers an alternative to waterjet cutting.
