laser cutting for metal fabricaiton

 

 

INNOVATION.

 
  G&H has the fastest CO2 laser machine in the world which translates to cost savings and quick turn-around times for our customers.  

LASER CUTTING

G&H has a state-of-the-art contract laser production facility offering tubular and flat laser cutting. Our advanced, computer controlled manufacturing process produces parts with precision and repeatability at very affordable prices. G&H has complete production design systems with up to 4000 watts of laser cutting power. We process of round, square, rectangular and N-sided tubular products in lot sizes ranging from as small as five pieces up to thousands. To complement our laser cutting capacity G&H also offers engineering support, full CAD/CAM capability, and other metal manufacturing services.

In the processing of tubular materials we have no equal. Our latest Trumpf TruLaser Tube 7000 is one of the fastest laser tube cutting machines on the market today. It allows us to cut very complex products such as tubular charge tubes for the oil & gas industry in a matter of seconds. Our laser machines often provide the most effective process for cutting plate or sheet metal for sheet metal fabrication, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and many other alloys.

Large Diameters and Wall Thickness: Our Trumpf TruLaser Tube 7000 offers plenty of advantages. It cuts tubes and profiles with large diameters and wall thicknesses without sacrificing productivity. It processes tubes and profiles up to 10 inches in diameter with wall thicknesses of up to 0.3 in. in mild steel.

Most Economical Solution: G&H has traditional flat cutting systems with table sizes up to 72“X 144“, power up to 3000 watts, and material exchange tables for increased productivity. Each machine is a 4-axis cutting system ready for tubular cutting, and is also equipped with an auto-handling fixture. These dual mode machines provide the most economical solution for metal cutting.

Advanced Flat Cutting: We have the most advanced flat cutting machines in the industry with 4000 watts of laser cutting power. These machines have “super-speed“ flying axes that minimize cut-to-cut times to a fraction of the traditional machine move times. The high power allows these cutting systems to process ½" stainless steel with burr-free precision or thin gage steel with unbounded speed.

Cost Efficient and Ultimate Flexibility: Our laser cutting equipment includes long bed, 4-axis lasers with power ranging from 1500 to 3000 watts to deliver cost efficient flexibility. Each machine is equipped with through-bore chucking up to 6“ diameter. The 1500 and 1800 watt machines cut thin wall tubing up to 3/16“ with better accuracy, no burrs and a smooth finish while maintaining a competitive cost in comparison to other mechanical processes. All cutting systems are equipped to process tubular materials up to 5/8“ thick and up to 24“ in diameter, and they allow for cutting up to 24 feet in length without indexing.

Cutting Large Volumes of Tubular Products: G&H has automatic production tube cutting cells with 3200 watts of cutting power. Each machine is equipped with fully automatic tube feeders up to 30 feet, minimizing the challenges and cost of producing large volumes of tubular products. These machines offer the ultimate in power, accuracy and cost reductions as well as tolerances of +/- 0.005“ in profiling or cut-to-length.

WHAT IS LASER CUTTING?

Laser cutting is a technology that has been in use since the 1960s. Basically, it involves using a laser to cut material. It is an automated computerized process that points a high-power laser at material which causes it to melt, burn or vaporize away. It leaves a high-quality surface finish that is free of burrs. Lasers can be used to cut all types of materials including wood, plastics and metals. They can cut flat materials as well as tubular shaped. Lasers can provide endless intricate shapes and designs that cannot be achieved with other cutting methods.

ADVANTAGES OF LASER TECHNOLOGY

Laser technology is a quality enhancing manufacturing process that offers more possibilities than virtually any other traditional machining process. It can eliminate the need for machining on many jobs enabling customers to reduce their manufacturing costs. Advantages include:

  • Enhanced precision
  • Better edge quality
  • Ability to cut complex shapes without the need for tooling
  • Faster speed
  • Reduced chance of material warping
  • Can cut materials that are impossible to cut with more traditional methods
