Precision metal laser cutting of thin metals for industrial and engineering applications

Laser cutting is the split-second cutting of intricate shapes. Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Put simply, metal laser cutting uses a laser to vaporize materials and produce a cut edge.

At California Steel Services, our steel laser cutting service produces complex parts ranging from 0.03” to 1.18” thick. These burr-free and distortion-free parts can be used for medical, electronic, and industrial applications. We cut complex metal parts with high accuracy and lightning speed. The use of top-of-the-line fiber optic laser technology allows us to produce thin metal parts three to four times faster than traditional laser cutting machinery.

When combined with operational cost savings and a larger table size, our metal laser cutting services provide a solid alternative to metal stamping, plasma, and water jet cutting. Simply send us your digital drawings, and your parts will be ready in no time.

In addition to our standard laser, we now have a more advanced 10k laser that allows for faster processing times for steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and even non-ferrous metals, all with excellent cutting quality and high parts output. That means you get the same top-notch products but at a lower cost.

Common Questions

Where Can I Find Metal Cutting Services Near Me?

Now that you know metal cutting is what you need, you may be wondering: where can I find metal cutting services near me? California Steel Services not only serves customers in nearby counties of San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, and Los Angeles by also in the rest of California, Arizona, and Nevada.

When should I opt for laser cutting services instead of plasma or water jet cutting?

The laser cutting service is the best option for complex parts that are 0.03" to 1.18" thick. The narrow laser cut (kerf) width created by material removal provides for efficient layout of parts (and more parts per sheet) with less material scrap waste than most other cutting methods.

Why should I ask for fiber laser cutting and not CO2 laser cutting?

Fiber laser, which is a solid-state laser, is becoming popular in the metal cutting industry. The fiber laser uses a solid gain medium, unlike the gas or liquid medium used in other laser technology. The “seed laser” produces a beam, which is amplified within a glass fiber. As the wavelength is only 1.064 micrometers, the spot size produced by fiber lasers is extremely small (up to 100 times smaller than that of the CO2 laser); this is ideal for reflective metal material and is a major advantage of opting for fiber lasers over CO2 lasers.

Why should I use California Steel Services for laser cutting?

We offer cost-effective solutions for rapid prototyping and for short- and long-run projects, so our services are a good alternative to metal stamping and plasma or water jet cutting. Our fiber laser cutting systems are expedient, economical, and environmentally friendly.
