What’s Involved In Our Tube Laser Cutting Services

Laser cutting, specifically tube laser cutting, is often used to make clean, precise holes for building or fabrication projects. Our tube laser machine can handle round, square, rectangle, channel, angle, and even custom profiles for our clients. But how do our tube laser cutting services even work? And what are the steps?

  1. Our team will upload our customer’s part design, quantity, and the raw material used into our software system.
  2. Next, the software “nests” the parts on the raw material to analyze actual material needs as well as shield gas and electric consumption. This allows us to keep costs down and not overuse materials or energy that is not needed.
  3. Once steps 1 and 2 are completed, we can arrive at a final cost per part. We can give this to you in advance so you won’t be surprised by your bill.
  4. Then we load the bundle of materials into the tube laser machine.
  5. Then the machine will automatically pull 1 bar at a time, measure the length, find the weld seam, and trim ½” off. Trimming ½” off every time will ensure that a perfect part end is achieved.
  6. Then the tube laser machine will start cutting the nested parts.
  7. Once your project is completed being cut, our machine operators will look over your project for accuracy.
  8. Once we have verified that your project is true to your design, we will prepare your project to either be picked up at our Lebanon shop or wrapped to be freight shipped to your direct location.

If you have a project that needs to be completed every single month, our team can program your design and save it to our tube laser machine.
