A big part of Tape Innovations’ core capabilities, laser-cutting services include not just the machinery, but the materials like plastic shim stock, elastomeric products, frozen epoxy preforms, tapes and more. Our lasers operate with precise accuracy, and are the perfect option for projects with complicated features and strict tolerances. It’s a great way to save money on your project, too.
When your project involves small, intricate or complicated designs, laser cutting is the perfect option. At Tape Innovations, our laser-cutting services specialize in precision, focusing on very small items that need great edge quality and extremely tight tolerances. We operate with very precise accuracy, and have the ability to hold some parts within a +/- .002″ tolerance.
Benefits of Laser Cutting
- No tooling cost
- Simple DXF allows for easy cutting
- Highly precise tolerancing
- High material utilization
- Low quantity runs
- Lots of room for adjustments because there is no tooling
- Offers greater precision than die cutting
- Allows for extremely rapid prototyping
In addition to being compatible with many different materials, the main benefit to laser cutting is its precision. Unlike other methods, laser cutting allows for tighter tolerances and more intricate workmanship than die cutting. Fine details? Laser cutting is the process to do the job right.
What this means for you:
You receive a higher quality product and at a lower cost.
Precision is the point of laser cutting. Our state-of-the-art machinery produces great edge quality with extremely tight tolerances, within a +/- of .002″.
The materials we use for laser cutting are a key part of the process and integral to its precise nature. We use:
Laser cutting is the right process for intricate, complex jobs with very tight tolerances. It’s also the perfect alternative to die cutting if you’re working with materials that typically don’t work well with the die-cutting process. Laser cutting also allows us to offer extremely rapid prototyping without tooling costs, which saves money for our customers. In many cases, we can offer same-day or next-day prototypes. Whether you need one individual prototype or a large quantity for an entire run, our laser-cutting machines are the right choice for the job.
