Laser Cutting

At METCOM Inc., our investment in state-of-the-art lasers allows us to produce extremely close tolerance parts, cost-effective, in both low and high-volume quantities. Laser cutting is extremely versatile, and by keeping tight control over beam profiles, we can cut extremely fine contours and delicate features with clean edges. Along with 5’ x 10’ worktables, our gaseous and solid state laser cutters allow us to accurately and consistently hold tolerances up to ±0.005”.

We handle all types of raw sheet materials up to 3/8” thick aluminum; 1/4” mild steel, stainless steel, steel alloys; and some plastics. Advanced nesting software allows us to maximize material utilization, and laser cut parts generally need no additional finishing. Robust measurement and inspection ensure we meet your most stringent quality requirements.

Our motivated team is committed to providing 100% customer satisfaction. We have the flexibility to offer very short lead times and fast turnaround. Contact us at any time for more information or a quote.

Laser ConfigurationFlying Optics
Flying optics lasers feature a stationary table and a cutting head (with laser beam) that moves over the workpiece in both of the horizontal dimensions. Flying-optics cutters keep the workpiece stationary during processing, and often don't require material clamping.

  • Swivel Bases Used on the Extraction Arms of Air Filtration Systems

    Swivel Bases Used on the Extraction Arms of Air Filtration Systems

    A customer in the air filtration industry commissioned us at METCOM Inc. to manufacture the swivel base collars shown here. As a part of air filtration systems, extraction arms are the elements that will pull or “extract” unwanted fumes from the area. The swivel bases allow it to be rotated and maneuvered where needed. To […]
