Laser Cutting


Vector Laser Cutting

Laser cutting has become increasingly important in industrial manufacturing as the need for smaller, more precise components has extended beyond specialized industries and applications. Today, everything from consumer electronics and auto parts, to stamps and signs, all rely on laser cutting to produce intricate designs on a mass scale.

American Micro Industries has invested heavily to develop and expand our capacity to offer custom laser cutting services on a variety of materials. We are proud to serve a number of key markets, including military, aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing and more, all of whom rely on us for accurate products and fast turn times for custom work.

The Laser Cutting Process

There are several different types of laser cutting machines available, though all follow a similar process. Design plans are entered via AutoCAD, CorelDRAW or a similar software platform. A CNC machine moves a high-powered laser according to these specifications, which will melt, burn or vaporize the intended material, leaving a clean edge that has been cut to an exceptionally high tolerance.

Today’s sophisticated machines can offer accuracy of up to 10 micrometers —  better than or consistent with the best mechanical cutting machines, while offering improved workholding and less risk of contamination.

Material Options

Our extensive laser cutting capabilities allow us to fulfill practically any custom cutting project. We can work with a variety of materials, including:

  • Electrical insulation: American Micro Industries can laser cut electrical insulation to the demanding tolerances required by aerospace and military contractors, among other customers. We stock a range of materials with high dielectric strength, and we can laser cut custom components to your exact specifications. Specific materials we work with include fish paper, polyester film and G10 FR4, a glass base insulator commonly used to protect printed circuit boards and electrical lines. Browse our website for more information, or contact an Account Manger directly for detailed product specifications.  
  • Plastics: We offer laser cutting for polyester film parts and other plastic components. Available materials include acetal resins such as Delrin®, acrylics such as Plexiglas® and Lucite®, PVC, PVDF, Teflon® and many other options. Laser cut plastics can offer a number of unique qualities not found on other materials, such as high impact strength, transparency, thermal stability and more. We are able to laser cut materials that are FDA-approved for use in food and drug applications, and we can work with you to meet any other specific requirements your project may have.
  • Rubber: Laser cut neoprene and other synthetic rubbers are found in a number of different products and industries. Laser cut rubber components can deliver excellent abrasion and compression set resistance, low gas permeability, and high resilience, among other properties. Let us match you with the right material for your application.
  • Phenolics: Laser cutting is also available for our complete lineup of phenolic resin boards and other laminated products. Available materials include NEMA-designated laminates for use in gaskets, gears and other components, Garolite® and many other products.
