Flat Laser Cutting
Flat laser cutting involves programmed cutting of a stationary piece of material with a 2-axis movement system. Lasers are technologically-advanced to provide speed, accuracy and high tolerance cutting on carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and metal alloys.
With better perpendicularity, smaller kerf and limited heat-affected zones, laser cutting yields increased accuracy on challenging profiles and specific part requirements like flatness and hole tolerances.
Typical laser cut applications are flat and formed sheet and plate components. With improved cutting accuracy, Iowa Laser Technology offers laser cut parts with better fit and less assembly time for sub-assemblies and weldments.
