Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We’ve compiled this short FAQ to provide answers to some of the most common questions posed by our customers.

How do you choose a Chicago laser cutting service?

When selecting a laser cutting service in Chicago, you need a supplier that can meet all of your individual project needs. Some of the factors that demonstrate a premium laser cutting service include reliable fabricators or manufacturers with plenty of experience, a range of cutting capabilities using different methods, and consistent communication throughout the project. A quality supplier will also complete processes in-house without farming out your project to multiple vendors.

What is laser cutting? What are the advantages of laser cutting?

Laser cutting uses a highly focused beam of light to heat and melt away material, resulting in precision cuts or holes. There are several key advantages of laser cutting over other processes. For example, laser cutting doesn’t depend on mechanical force to cut the metal, which results in stress-free cutting that maintains the integrity of the metal material. Laser cutting also provides extremely close-tolerance cuts, relatively clean edges, smooth surfaces, and reduced tooling wear. Laser cut parts often have no need for secondary finishing processes, such as deburring.
