CNC Laser Cutting Services
Laser cutting is popular for creating 2D parts out of aluminum, steel, plastics, and more. Laser cutting machines can produce almost any 2D shape imaginable.
Whether you need a single part, batch of prototypes, or full production order, eMachineShop will turn your design into fully machined, end-use parts!

CNC Laser Cuttingis a process where a computer-guided industrial laser cuts sheet material by vaporizing the cut path of the workpiece, achieving the desired shape.
In this process, a powerful beam of high-density light is focused through a tiny hole in a nozzle where the laser beam exits to strike the material.
- Can produce parts of almost any 2D shape
- Cost-effective, minimal setup
- Parts have minimal burrs
- Fast turn time
- Sharp inside corners of the part may have a slight rounding of 0.02″ to 0.04″ due to beam radius
- Thin, flimsy structures may experience some warping
- Edges will be heat affected
Laser cutting is a popular choice for many products and components:

One of the most popular aluminum alloys used in sheet metal fabrication. It is readily bent, punched and sheared.
Known for its high corrosion resistance, especially in ocean water. Common applications include marine and aircraft equipment, fuel lines, street lights, household appliances, flooring panels, and railings.
Used in applications requiring high strength to weight ratio, and has good fatigue resistance. It is not weldable and has average machinability.
Corrosion resistance is poor. Widely used in aircraft structures, especially wing and fuselage structures under tension.
Has generally good mechanical properties, and is heat treatable. Highly weldable although strength near welds can be diminished by up to 30% if not subsequently heat treated.
Mostly used in extruded shapes for architecture, including window frames, door frames, roofs, piping, tubing and furniture.
Strong, with good fatigue strength and average machinability, but is not weldable and has limited resistance to corrosion.
Cost is relatively high compared to other Aluminum alloys. Often used in aircraft including wings and fuselages, rock climbing equipment and bicycle components.
