The highly-skilled team at Laser Specialists provides niche laser cutting services by offering:

  • Complete CAD math data processing
  • Complete fixture design capabilities
  • Laser cutting for prototyping
  • Laser cutting for medium-run and heavy-run production

Our programmers are capable of starting with a hand-filed template or un-dimensioned Mylar when dimensioned prints are unavailable. This laser cutting process involves electronic digitizing of the estimated part dimensions. Once digitized, we can enter the part specifications into our Computer Aided Design (CAD) / Computer Aided Machining (CAM) system. The CAD/CAM data is then transmitted directly to our laser processing machines. We then will typically produce a trial part based on the preliminary design. This trial part gives the customer a chance to assess the component’s design characteristics before production begins. Any changes at this point are accomplished easily on the CAD/CAM system. The entire process is streamlined through direct customer-to-programmer access. Our laser cutting technology is heavily relied on and continues to support customer needs throughout the design, trial, launch and production product phase.

Off-line 5-axis Programming from Laser Specialists

We help improve customer “turnaround time” using CATIA based CENIT FastTrim/LaserCut software. This laser cutting software significantly reduces overall laser cutting programming and process time. Also, it reduces the number of edits resulting from scribed templates. Our highly skilled staff has developed a process to effectively design and build uniquely engineered steel egg crate fixtures for prototype runs to ensure repeatable part quality. For production we are also capable of designing and manufacturing specialty automated fixtures with pneumatic clamps, proximity switches, and part actuation features. Our CAD Department accepts computer data in CATIA, IGES, DXF, DWG, STEP, and STL format.
