Laser Cutting

 Home /Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a core competency at Yolanda. Our factory has been providing laser cutting services for over 20 years.  We just added our USA imported laser!  Being able to control a broad range of laser parameters precisely helps transform a flat sheet of metal into numerous parts with a variety of characteristic without the need of extra tooling. We have the ability to cut flat sheet metal or tubes. We can cut holes straight through the metal or we can etch or even countersink holes. By using our laser cutting services, you will have the precision parts quickly and cost effectively.  

Today Yolanda has 10 more lasers and capacity to handle large production laser cutting and small jobs as well.

What is Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting is the technology that uses a intense laser to cut metal. The word "laser" stands for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation" - a process that works by stimulated emission. It is manifested in the form of a beam that can be manipulated with various reflective surfaces. 

What are the benefits of Laser Cutting?

Custom laser cut parts produces greater consistency from part to part. Precision sheet metal parts can be made by laser cutting the parts due to the ability to hold tighter tolerances.  Laser cutting gives you cleaner, burr-free cuts, quicker production, minimal operator intervention and greater accuracy which equates to less wasted metal & time. This lower costs to the manufacturer & results in a savings to the customer.  Processing tolerance can be guaranteed at 0.005.  

Quality Control Inspection

If you are looking for a metal fabrication company who takes ISO 9001:2008 seriously along with continuous improvement, Yolanda is that company.  We purchased a Virtek Scanner and created a white room beside the laser cutting area so that first article inspections could be done as soon as the first part was cut.  The operator places the first article part on the glass of the scanner and an infrared beam locates the part, scans and gathers key data and dimensions of the part and compares it to the electronic drawing.  This QC inspection provides assurance of quality parts with exacting tolerances for first article inspection before the part goes to another work center. 

If cost is your biggest consideration of precision sheet metal cutting, then you might want to consider punching the part in our cnc punching department.
