YAG Laser

Yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) lasers are pumped using a flashtube with a YAG crystal as the gain medium. Also known as nd:YAG laser, they are used in the manufacturing, medicine, dentistry, automotive and welding industries. It’s used for engraving and cutting thin sheet metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, copper, brass and more. It’s also great for welding steel, semiconductors and various alloys.

CO2 Laser

Carbon dioxide lasers have the highest power of the current continuous wave lasers with an extremely efficient ratio of output power to pump power. Because there are two beams with different wavelengths, using a CO2 laser cutter is easy. This laser is commonly found in industrial applications to cut and weld, as well as medicinal practices during surgeries. It works best with painted metals and anodized aluminum, but it can also easily cut into organic materials like rubber, wood and acrylic.

Laser Drilling

In laser hole drilling, thru-holes, also known as “popped” holes or “percussion drilled” holes, are created by focused laser energy repeatedly pulsing on the material. Using a laser drill to create holes in sheet metals is a much more effective technique than conventional drilling methods.

Laser Cutting

Custom laser cutting is an innovative way to cut intricate and detailed designs into sheet metals. A high-powered laser beam is guided along the material to cut a design by either melting, burning or vaporizing the chosen material. Our laser cutting machines can cut into various metals, including steel and aluminum, as well as different plastic. This process is typically used for industrial purposes, but it’s also used by schools, small businesses and hobbyists. Because of this growing popularity, our highly skilled teams of engineers are determined to laser cut with precision.

Electrical Discharge Machining – Fast Hole

Fast hole EDM drilling quickly and accurately creates small, deep holes. It is a cost effective technique, most often seen in the aerospace industry to produce cooling holes into aero blades and other components. Additionally, it is used to drill holes in industrial gas turbine blades, in molds and dies, and in bearings.

Electrical Discharge Machining – Plunge and Wire

Wire EDM, also known as wire cutting, occurs when a single strand of thin metal wire is fed through the workpiece, and then the two are submerged in dielectric fluid. This technique is used to cut thicker plates and to make punches, tools, and dies from hard metals.

Plunge EDM, also known as sinker EDM, cavity type EDM or volume EDM, is when an electrode and workpiece, both connected to a power source, are submerged into an insulating liquid. The power source generates an electrical potential between the two parts, and sparks jump as the electrode moves closer to the workpiece. Dielectric breakdown occurs in the fluid, where a plasma channel forms.
