American Metal Fab: Navigating Laser Cutting Power in Metal Fabrication

In the realm of metal fabrication, the debate over laser cutting power reemerges, echoing past battles in CO2 machines and resurging now with fiber lasers. The discussion on ultrahigh-powered systems versus lower powers highlights the need for a tailored approach. When determining the laser power for your operation, it’s essential to consider various factors.

When addressing this critical query, we recognize the importance of a holistic approach. Beyond material thickness, grade, and part geometries, our company emphasizes evaluating the larger business context. The four key areas—customers, resources, capabilities, and operating costs—play a vital role in deciding the ideal fiber laser that aligns with your business objectives.

Different business models, whether it’s OEMs, contract manufacturers with diverse customer bases, or specialized markets, and the versatile metal fabrication job shops, have unique needs dictated by their product demand, customer mix, and industry niches. We acknowledge the varying demands of these models and the need for a laser cutting power that best aligns with each model’s specific requirements.
