Wisconsin Metal Parts is now offering fiber laser cutting services to its capabilities. One of only three metal parts producers in Wisconsin with in-house fiber laser services, the device will be used to cut stainless steel, brass, copper and other metals.
A press release stated that the company plans to use a TRUMPF TruLaser 5030 fiber unit.
Advantages of fiber laser services include the ability to cut metals three times faster than CO2 laser systems, high accuracy for thin metals (thinner than 0.25”), prototyping and part making capabilities, and low operating and maintenance costs. It also reduces initial tooling costs and improves turnaround time, according to Wisconsin Metal Parts.
“We saw a need for fiber laser technology, and it’s ideal for many of our customers’ applications,” said Dan Erschen, president of Wisconsin Metal Parts. “There’s a great opportunity to save time and cost, while providing a service that’s rarely offered in-house. We can apply fiber laser as a stand-alone service, but it can also play an important role for parts that require any of the secondary manufacturing processes we can offer. Few manufacturers have the ability to cut, machine, weld and assemble products, all in-house. We can even meet PPAP requirements, and supply inspection data and certs as required by our customers.”
