Laser Metal Cutting
Laser cutting is one of Xometry's Sheet Metal profiling processes that directs a high-power laser through optics to cut materials for industrial applications. Laser cutting is both more precise and less energy-consuming than plasma cutting, but has an upper threshold on the thickness of the material being cut. Xometry's Manufacturing Partner Network offers both Fiber and CO2 lasers that can cut a number of materials including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and exotic alloys. CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser excels at cutting, engraving, and boring metals, while Fiber laser is a good option for thicker materials. For sheet and plate metal thicker than 4 inches, see our waterjet cutting services.

Sheet Metal Design Guide
Sheet metal fabrication is a process by which parts are cut and bent from a roll of stock metal material. It can be a very cost-effective way to make straightforward metal parts. Check out our design for tips on how to optimize your files for sheet metal!
