About Laser Cutting

Laser cutting produces part shapes by cutting sheet material using an intense laser beam.  This cutting method uses a beam of high-density light energy focused through a tiny hole in a nozzle. When this beam strikes the surface of the work piece, the material of the work piece is vaporized.

eMachineShop Quotations

We can quote your job using conventional CAD files or you can use our unique free CAD software where you can design your part quickly and easily, get instant pricing and order online. For more about our special service, please see our front page.

Laser Advantages 

The process offers low cost for prototype and short runs since no physical tooling is needed. Heat distortion is minimal and typically limited to about 10% of material thickness. Cut parts generally remain flat. Lasers leave minimal burrs.

Shapes 

Cutting with a laser can produce almost any 2D shape including cutouts for parts such as enclosures, cams, brackets, decorative items, holders, mechanisms, etc.

Materials

Several materials are applicable. Aluminum can be laser cut but requires a higher power more expensive laser. Stainless steel, plain steel and spring steel are highly suitable. Metals such as copper alloys are difficult due to their ability to reflect the laser light and absorb heat. Many plastics are problematic due to toxic fumes.

Design Considerations

  • Sharp inside corners of the part may have a slight rounding due to beam radius of approximately 0.02 - 0.04". 
  • Edge burrs are usually minimal and deburring of edges is usually not necessary.
  • Thin flimsy structures, such as shapes where a high percent of material is removed and long slots may experience some warping.

Video Tutorial


"I've been building robots for a while now and always dreamed of building one of my own design. After doing my research I went with eMachineShop.com. I had 52 parts built in T6 Aluminum and powder coated gloss white. Everything came back perfect! The powder coating gave it a professional look I was going for. I just place another order this week!
