Benefits of laser cutting in productions

Include almost unlimited cutting configurations, elimination of stack up tolerances caused by combining multiple operations. Also, the limited "heat affected zone" is essential when cutting thin wall metal tubing to eliminate any mechanical or thermal distortion. 

Due to their short wave-length, our lasers at LaserGuide Inc. produce repeatable extremely precise cutting (up to ±.001"). Our five axis machines are capable of cutting a wide array of geometric and single wall features (see Capabilities).

LaserGuide Inc. has a strict philosophy of adding value to each and every job that comes through our doors.

 
We utilize two 5-axis LaserDyne 890 Beam Director systems with 96" x 72" x 36" of cutting travel. Both machines are setup to utilize both CO2 and nd:yag lasers.
We also utilize one 5-axis LaserDyne 780 Beam Director.

Secondary Laser Processing Services include 




Our Precision CNC 
5-axis Laser Cutting Capabilities

Up to ± .001" depending on the tooling/application. However, our 5-axis lasers themselves are precise and repeating up to +-.0005".  

  • Cutting Capacity: Three laser systems with up to 72" x 92" x 48" of active work envelopes each. 
  • Auto focus control (AFC): maintains constant laser beam focus on cutting/welding surfaces even with parts inconsistent with expected geometry.
  • Auto feed rate/power control (maintains constant energy input to material, minimizing heat affected zone, reducing thermal distortion)
  • Material thickness: 
    • up to 0.30" Carbon Steel
    • up to 0.25" Stainless Steel
    • up to 0.18" Aluminum
    • up to 0.20" Titanium, and various alloys
    • Organic materials (such as plastics, carbon fiber, etc.) thickness varies.
