First to Adopt Metal Laser Cutting Services



Over 20 years ago, Star-Metal Manufacturing recognized the importance of offering metal laser cutting services to the marketplace. Since that time, we have advanced our sheet metal cutting capabilities to the point of virtual precision. Our highly accurate metal laser cutting services meet a wide range of customer needs, from single prototypes to production runs requiring thousands of parts.

Since its invention, the laser metal cutting process has added a new dimension to the metal fabricating industry. C02 lasers, which were the workhorses of the industry for many years, are being replaced by new Fiber Optic technology. Fiber Optic technology has several advantages, such as increased cutting speed, consistency, precision, and versatility.


For these reasons, Star-Metal Manufacturing has invested in 6 kW Fiber Optic Technology. This upgrade in technology is a prime example of how Star-Metal Manufacturing is committed to continuous improvement as a metal fabricator.


Prototyping

Star-Metal Manufacturing can utilize your Solidworks, DXF/DWG, EPS and STP files to download to our laser and start cutting metal in a matter of minutes. We can also work from a photo of a component that you want to create in metal. Our quick and flexible laser cut prototyping options allow you to move from a concept to a tangible product with minimal difficulty and delay, saving you valuable time during pre-production.


Low-volume Metal Cutting Production

When volume requirements are not large enough to justify the cost of building high-volume production dies, Star-Metal Manufacturing’s metal laser cutting services bridge the gap. Laser metal cutting has proven to be a cost-effective option for the production of one part or several thousand parts—all without the investment in expensive, high production dies.


With the installation of our 6 kW Fiber Optic Laser system, we can now offer sheet metal cutting for the following metals:

  • Steel up to .750″ thick
  • Stainless up to .625″ thick
  • Aluminum up to .500″ thick
  • Brass up to .500” thick
  • Copper up to .250” thick
 

Our laser metal cutting systems are equipped with two 60” x 120” indexing worktables, allowing for both operator-free and lights-out operation. In addition, the system’s proprietary nesting software maximizes sheet yield while minimizing scrap. The benefit to our customers: quality and savings.

We work with a variety of industries for their precision laser cutting needs, including the medical, government and defense, food and beverage, architectural, and automotive industries.
