One of the top concerns our customers have when it comes to metal fabrication is cost. Everyone wants to reduce unnecessary costs where they can without sacrificing quality or timeliness. Laser cutting is one such way to reduce overall cost while maintaining high quality. In this article, we are going to discuss how laser cutting can reduce costs for your metal fabrication project.
Why Use Laser Cutting?
Laser cutting may sound like an expensive process, but it can actually save you money in the long run. With lasers, you can produce cosmetic parts without the need for secondary processing – which can result in a huge cost savings. Lasers provide high edge quality and scratch-free surfaces, because the laser head never comes into contact with the material during the process. Simply put, laser cutting is the best option for flat blank processes that does not damage the material.
Versatility & Precision
Lasers also offer versatility and precision, having the ability to cut intricate shapes, process materials with varying thicknesses, and change between materials with little downtime. The result is shorter manufacturing time and reduced cost. Lasers can process sheets of up to 5×10 feet, which means they are an ideal tool for high quantity production.
