Laser Tube Cutting Applications & Technical Job Capabilities

  5-axis Laser Tube Cutting Services
Precision Tube Cutting 



* Rotary tooling can be used simultaneously with our 5-axis beam director to provide an extra dimension of cutting to our process. By using this we can precisely cut tubing up to 12" in diameter without even breaking a sweat (literally). We have a rotary table on every machine, due to the extra precision and lower tooling cost associated with using them. These rotary tables can also be used for a variety of other 3D parts that require more precise cutting angles and smaller more intricate parts.


Precision Laser Tube Cutting Capabilities

  • Accurate to ± .001" depending on the tooling and other factors
  • Cutting capacity:  6' x 8' x 4' work envelope 
  • Auto focus control (AFC)
  • Auto feed rate/power control (maintains constant energy input to material, minimizing heat affected zone, reducing thermal distortion)
  • Complex shapes are cut with Simultaneous Linear and Rotary Motion (seen below)
  • Tubing can be cut from 20' length stock
  • 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.
