Rapid Sheet Metal Upgrades Equipment with New Fiber Laser
Rapid Laser Focused on Fabricating Sheet Metal Prototypes Even Faster
February 5, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Rapid Sheet Metal, a dedicated rapid prototype sheet metal shop, is excited to introduce a new state-of-the-art fiber laser that will broaden the sheet metal prototype shop's capabilities. Fiber lasers are 4-5 times faster than conventional Co2 powered lasers, and are able to cut thinner materials all the way down to 1/5000th of an inch. The new fiber laser will also allow Rapid to laser cut parts at a faster rate and with tighter tolerances compared to a traditional laser.
Operations Manager, Tom Bryk, said the fiber laser is a great addition to Rapid Sheet Metal, "We are able to give our customers better, more precise parts in half the time with our new fiber laser. Not only can we get a piece down to 1/5000th of an inch thick, we can now cut certain materials that we weren't able to before like bronze, brass, and copper."
Rapid Sheet Metal is the world's largest Rapid Prototype Sheet Metal service. In business since 2001, with over 80 employees, and a 25,000 square foot facility, Rapid Sheet Metal always has the capacity to turn sheet metal fabrication rapidly.
