The Science Behind Our Cutting-Edge Laser Cutting Technology

At American Metal Fab, the core of our laser cutting service is the use of state-of-the-art fiber optic laser technology. This technology is not just about cutting through metal; it’s about crafting precision parts with speed and accuracy that traditional methods can’t match. Our commitment to this advanced technology allows us to deliver high-quality results consistently.

The science of laser cutting involves generating a coherent stream of light photons in a process known as stimulated emission. This light is then amplified and focused into a tight beam using a lens or a mirror. The concentrated energy in this beam is directed at the metal, causing rapid heating and precise cutting without physical contact. This process minimizes mechanical stress and avoids tool wear, which is crucial for maintaining the integrity and quality of the cut pieces.

Our lasers are finely tuned to handle different materials and thicknesses by adjusting the laser’s power, speed, and focus. This adaptability makes laser cutting a preferred choice for industries requiring high precision and flexibility, from automotive manufacturing to fine arts.

Moreover, the technology behind our laser cutting equipment allows for integration with digital controls, making it possible to execute complex and intricate designs that are programmatically controlled with minimal waste. This digital integration not only increases efficiency but also ensures repeatability, which is vital for large-scale production runs.
