Proshort provides state-of-the-art laser cutting for your quality rapid prototype, or short run production, needs. We can do the difficult when no one else can.
Our laser cutting services uses electrical discharges, or lamps, from the output of a high-power CNC laser beam in a closed container to manufacture your pattern cut into the material best suited for your end application.
As the lasing material is stimulated, the laser cutting beam is reflected internally by means of a particle mirror, until it achieves sufficient energy to escape as a stream of coherent light which is directed to at the work zone via mirrors or fiber optics.
The focused laser cutting beam is generally less than .0125 inches with widths as small as .004 inches.
The high-power laser cutting beam head is moved over the metal plate in the shape of your desired part, thus cutting the part out of the plate. This allows for highly accurate intricate shapes and small holes with precision cut quality.
Laser cutting has advantages over mechanical cutting, such as higher precision because the laser cutting beam does not wear during the process, and there is reduced contamination of the workpiece because there is no cutting edge which can become contaminated by the material being used to cut it.
Laser cutting for metals is more precise than plasma cutting and uses less energy when cutting sheet metal, stainless steel, brass, bronze, mild steel, and aluminum plate to name a few.
Our Proshort laser cutting specialists understand the many different kinds of laser cutting methods, which include melt and blow, melt blow and burn, vaporization, thermal stress cracking, scribing, cold cutting and burner stabilized laser cutting.
We can make electronic enclosures, name badges and tags, signs, metal frames, brackets, rings, discs, washers, plates, shields, hangers, handles, models, lighting fixtures, furniture parts, promotional or novelty items, housewares, hardware, metal art and more.
We are your one stop shop with all our in-house services: laser cutting, press brake bending, shearing, milling, vibratory finishing, PEM insertion, forming, drilling, TIG welding & MIG welding, and painting. Combined with our our-sourced operations: plating, anodizing, powder coating and passivating services we are your turnkey prototype and short run provider.
