Precision Laser Cutting

With an accuracy of ±.001”

We Can Cut Virtually Any Material.

At Miller Gasket, we utilize advanced 2 and 6-axis CO2 laser cutting systems which allows us to provide precision laser cutting as well as 3D laser cut parts for a variety of customers including those in the automotive, industrial, electronics, and lighting industries. We can cut virtually any material including metals such as aluminum, steel, stainless steel, and Inconel in thicknesses from .005” to .375” and up to 48” x 48”. Nonmetallic materials include cork, felt, foam, asbestos-free cellular fiber, electrical insulation, rubber, plastics, and many more, in dimensions of .005” to .375” and up to 46” x 64”.

Our CNC lasers maintain a very consistent cut with an accuracy of ±.001” and a kerf, which varies from .003” to .020” depending on the specific material type and thickness. Our 6-axis laser cutting equipment allows us to cut 3D objects, including tubing up to 8” in diameter. We can cut holes and slots as well as trim 3D shapes in one operation, saving time and tooling costs over more traditional, manual milling and drilling methods. We operate 100W, 250W, and 1500W lasers which give us the flexibility to precisely cut nearly any material with a controlled, accurate, cut.

The Laser Cutting Process

A typical laser cutting setup includes a laser resonator assembly, mirrors, and a cutting head containing a laser focusing lens, pressurized gas assembly, and nozzle. The process starts with a digital design in CAD software, which is then executed by the laser cutting machine. Key parameters such as laser power, cutting speed, and focal length are adjusted based on the material. The material absorbs the laser’s radiation, heating and melting it to form the desired cuts. 

Materials Suitable for Laser Cutting

Precision laser cutting is compatible with a wide range of materials, offering creative flexibility. Metals like stainless steel, aluminum, and copper are commonly used due to their various properties beneficial in industries like medical devices, aerospace, and electrical applications. Non-metal materials such as acrylic, wood, and plastics are also ideal for laser cutting, widely used in artistic and decorative applications.

Advantages of Custom Laser Cutting

Laser cutting offers unparalleled precision, efficiency, and flexibility for diverse shapes and patterns. It minimizes material waste and ensures high-quality cuts with minimal need for secondary finishing. The process is fast, efficient, and allows for tight tolerances, making it ideal for intricate part production. However, it does come with limitations, such as restrictions in cutting certain materials and thicknesses, and the potential for high initial equipment costs
