Thin Metal Parts has a wide range of state-of-the-art laser cutting capabilities, with both fiberoptic and UV laser tools. The computer-directed, custom-designed, fiber laser focuses a high-powered laser beam on the metal, which melts or burns away the excess until the desired part emerges. The UV laser utilizes UV light and has higher precision and better cutting effect than a traditional long-wavelength cutting machine for various materials. Laser cutting leaves a high-quality surface finish and can be used with a variety of metals and materials.
State of the art laser equipment allows Thin Metal Parts to achieve an outstanding combination of edge quality, tolerances, and feature sizes with openings as small as 15 microns.
The fiberoptic laser can create precision edges without burs or heat. Fiberoptic laser-cut can be very useful for prototyping projects as it is an inexpensive, fast, and versatile tool.
Materials include most metals, except for aluminum, brass, and copper.
UV lasers have shorter wavelengths than the visible wavelength, which requires a very short, focused laser for a higher precision cut. In addition to the low work piece temperature, the high-energy photons that exist in ultraviolet light allow the UV laser to be used with non-metallic and other various materials.

Using three different technologies, custom metal parts can be built for thousands of applications for a large variety of industries. By combining multiple technology options, a hybrid precision part, unavailable anywhere else in the global marketplace, can be custom manufactured.
Thin Metal Parts regularly works with the aerospace, computer, and electronic industries to build custom precision parts used in industrial and consumer goods applications... parts such as metal encoder wheels, metal mesh, and print heads. In addition, custom parts are developed daily in research and development as the design/process engineer group teams with customers to develop prototypes and production items in medical, manufacturing, and scientific instrument sectors.
All products are custom manufactured to meet customer needs and specifications, including DFARS and RoHS compliance. These quick-turn, cost-effective, low tooling cost processes offer excellent production alternatives to traditional fabrication methods for metal parts in high volumes and prototyping.
