Laser Cutting Capacities – Copper Brass Aluminum Stainless

Laser Cutting Capacities in Stainless Steel – Copper – Brass – Aluminum – Tube Laser and Flat Bed

*Please note that our CNC Laser & Press Brake combo works great for 3D CAD models. We have CAD designers on staff to take your 3D CAD designs and convert to our machine language.

6’ x 12’ table size
1/2” max on Aluminum ​for a “Clean Edge​”​ – could go to ¾” ​with ​slightly rougher edge​.​
1/2” max on Copper for “Clean Edge”– could go to ¾” ​with ​slightly rougher edge​.​
1/2” max on Brass for “Clean Edge”– could go to ¾” ​with ​slightly rougher edge​.​
1/2” max on Stainless ​for a “Clean Edge​”​ – could go to ¾” ​with slightly ​rougher edge​.​
3/4” max on steel
Holes – General Rule: hole diameter can’t be smaller than material thickness – thicker pieces can go a little smaller.

.007 kerf on all lasers Tolerance = +/- .004 (dependant on material thickness)

Laser Cutting 4,400W Bystronic:

Features: Dual shuttle tables – Edge detection for location of material to ensure proper layout of cutting
​​ files. 400 additional watts help with heavier thicknesses and automated nesting software ensures optimal material usage.+/-.004” accuracy. Nesting software for maximum sheet yield.

5’ X 10’ table size
3/8” max on Aluminum (edge quality poor at 3/8” => 5/16” max for good edge quality).
1/2” max on Stainless (3/8″ for best edge quality)
3/4” max on steel (1/2” for best edge quality).

3D Tube Lasers

Adige LT8 Lasertube Cutting System

High production tube cutting. 70’ long footprint. Capable of loading entire bundles of tubing up to 27’ long.

Maximum Round OD Size: 8 7/8” Diameter Maximum Square Size: 6 5/8” X 6 5/8” Maximum Wall Thickness: 5/8” Maximum Raw Material Length: 27’ Maximum Automated Unload Processed Length: 21.6’ Materials Able To Be Processed: Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel Profiles Able To Be Processed: Round, Square, & Rectangular Tubing. Extrusion Shapes, Angle Iron, C Channel, Beams, Flats.

​*Note ​- ​that the maximum weight we can load in the tube laser is 23 pounds per lineal foot becasue of the handling mechanisms. Please let us know the wall thickness, so we can check that. For example, even though the laser will cut through 5/8″ wall, that maxes out at about 4″ square tube based on pounds per lineal foot. See tube chart below:

Mazak SpaceGear-U44 3D Tube Laser:

Resonator: 2500W Bed Size: 4’ x 4’ (able to cut flat sheets as well) X-axis Stroke: 16.5” Max. cutting thickness: 3/8” mild steel Features: Multi-process! 2D/3D pipe, tube and structural steel. The U-44 can make quick work of panels, sheet metal and shaped parts by cutting precise profiles and beveling, all in one operation.

6” OD round pipe and 4 ½” X 4 ½” on square. Clamping fixtures could be engineered for larger shapes; however, this would be at production run quantities and customer paying for the fixture.
Max wall thickness is 3/8” on simple parts and ¼” on compound cuts (at angles to tube wall).
Max cutting length at one time is about 42” to 44”. We can do longer pieces with multiple cut files. Only problem with that is the tolerances open up once we start re-chucking the tube. Somewhere around +/- 1/32”
