Laser Cutting Process
Laser cutting utilizes a high-powered laser to cut out shapes on sheets of material. A computer-aided design (CAD) program moves the laser on a path to cut out the desired shape. This method is used for materials that are harder to cut using traditional die cutting methods. The cut provided by the laser is cleaner and more precise, allowing for tighter tolerances on your gasket.
Unlike die cutting which requires time and a tooling expense, a laser cutter works directly from a CAD file, such as a .DXF, and is able to quickly and precisely cut out shapes with an accuracy of +/- .002” even for the most intricate and complex geometries.
Advantages of Laser Cutting
- Clean and precise cuts with high tolerances
- No tooling costs
- No compression distortion
- Quick turn-around of parts
- Nested cutting arrangements for better material yield
- Prototyping different materials, sizes and patterns
