Laser Cutting Fiber & CO2 Plate & Sheet

Bassett Industries, Inc. offers comprehensive laser cutting services for short and long production runs. Our multiple laser cutting systems including, fiber up to 8KW 4 meter x 2 meter, 6 ft x 12ft CO2, flat sheet, 5 axis and tube cutting machines will meet the demands for any customer application. Our sheet & plate lasers are fully automated and capable of running 24/7 “lights out” production, with the fiber capable of speeds 4-5 times faster than conventional CO2 machines. Our FMS system automates the material handling for the laser cells. The CAD/CAM nesting software programs the sheet layout, machine path, and numerous other parameters to ensure that material and motion are not wasted. This system is intended to eliminate waste and provide economical and efficient production. Remote monitoring limits downtime. Mixed N2 & O2 processing increases speed, dross and reduces oxide edges. In addition, pure nitrogen cutting can eliminate oxide edges altogether on parts that have to be painted, thus eliminating secondary operations and guaranteeing excellent paint adhesion.

Laser cutting technology effectively eliminates burrs, ensures precise cutting, and thereby reduce the need for any secondary operation on the laser-cut part. Since there is no tooling requirement, turnaround times are extremely low. We can laser-cut almost all materials including stainless steel, wood, and plastics.

Bassett Industries also provides reverse engineering solutions with the help of CAD/CAM-enabled laser inspection cutting systems. Our reverse engineering team helps us to create quick drawings from old parts and templates. Furthermore, our CAD/CAM systems also ensure that the time taken from drawing to cutting is limited to only a few minutes.

Laser inspection with first article reports in less than a minute is offered to ensure that our operations meet your strict quality specifications.







Specifications

Materials Used

  • Steel
    (A106, A500 Type 1-5, A513 Type 1-5, A53, ROPS, HREW)
  • Aluminum:
    (B210, 1100, 2024, 3003, 5052, 6061, 6063)
  • Stainless Steel:
    (A249, A269, 303, 304, 304 L, 309, 310, 316, 316 L, 317L, 410, 416)

Plate Size

Large, 72 x 144 inches sheet size capability
60 x 120  & 48 x 96 are also common sizes

Plate Thickness

Up to and including 1 inch thick material

Tolerance

+/- 0.002 inches

Production Runs

From prototyping to high volume production

Designing Assistance

Laser Cutting Considerations:
Minimum hole diameter. General rule of thumb is minimum hole diameter is equal to or greater than the material thickness. A 5/16"DIA hole can be put in 1"thk plate but not with great speed and reliability. The cutting speed and pierce routine must be adjusted which increase time and part cost.
