OUR LASER CUTTING
WORKING CAPABILITIES

By investing in modern CNC systems and laser cutting technology our Robofacturing and Manufacturing Partners make the most of each sheet metal. This enables generating maximum parts yield per sheet, dramatically lowering unit costs.

Thermal effects on the material are small, therefore it is possible to cut small holes with a minimum diameter of 1/2 the material thickness as well as holes that can be threaded after cutting without requiring additional machining. The cutting line width is smaller than 0.5 mm for most materials. ROBOFACTURING3D’s accuracy tolerance for positioning is +/- 0.1 mm, hence the end result is high-quality and highly-precision components within the shortest possible timescales.

ROBOFACTURING3D manufacturing network offers laser machines that can cut a number of materials. These include carbon steel, stainless steel as well as non-ferrous materials like aluminium or brass. For metal plates thicker than 20 mm, see more about our Plasma Cutting capabilities.

GREAT FLEXIBILITY

One sheet may have 100 different cuts without having to change tools. Also, it is possible to cut all kinds of shapes and profiles.

PRECISION

We offer high precision manufacturing tolerances up to +/-0,1 mm, depending on customer specifications, which ensures high quality components.

SPEED

Laser cutters are known for their speed, especially when cutting thin metal sheets.

REPEATABILITY

+/- 0.1 mm ensures close to identical details.

SMALL AREAS OF HEAT-AFFECTED ZONE

The heat-affected zone is an unwanted byproduct of thermal cutting methods. As Laser Cutting has a small cutting kerf, the heat is not dispersed as heavily as with other cutting methods, leaving a smaller heat-affected zone and reducing the presence of burrs.

SAVING TIME

Laser cutting is automated. Therefore, it is the machinery that reads the drawings. The drawings only need to include cutting lines and manual work is limited.

SURFACE FINISHES

STANDARD (AS MACHINED)

– Surface roughness Ra = 3.2 μm (micrometres). Roughness ISO grade N8.
– Available to all metals and plastics.

It is our standard and quickest finish option. Tool marks are visible. Sharp edges and burrs are removed upon request. The colour of the finish will be the natural colour of the material.

IMPROVED MACHINED FINISH

– Surface roughness Ra = 1.6 μm (micrometres). Roughness ISO grade N7.
– Available to all metals and plastics.

The surface roughness will be improved during the CNC machining process itself by slower machining processes. Tool marks are visible, but less obvious. Sharp edges and burrs are removed upon request. The colour of the finish will be the natural colour of the material.

ANODIZING TYPE II OR DECORATIVE

– Corrosion-resistant finish.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all aluminum materials.

The Type II anodizing process improves the aluminum properties increasing corrosion resistance and producing a uniform finish. ROBOFACTURING3D offers clear or black anodize coating, as well as it can be dyed in multiple colours (available upon request). Standard coating thickness 0,02 to 0,03 mm.

ANODIZING TYPE III OR HARDCOAT

– Corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant finish.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all aluminum materials.

The Type III anodizing process produces a thicker layer than Type II, adding a wear-resistant properties in addition to the previous corrosion-resistant indicated in Type II. You can find a clear or black anodize coating. Standard coating thickness 0,02 to 0,07 mm.

BEAD BLASTING

– Different grits depending on the size of the bead.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all metals.

Bead blasting is often used in creating a smooth uniform matte or satin surface finish on machined parts. It is used mainly for visual appearance. Tool marks and sharp edges are removed. It is a very useful surface treatment on parts manufactured by die casting or to improve the surface finish of the part before applying a secondary surface finish, for example anodizing.

ELECTROPOLISHING

– Surface roughness Ra = 0.8 μm (micrometres). Roughness ISO grade N6.
– Improve the appearance and the corrosion resistance.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all metals.

Electropolishing improves the appearance and the corrosion resistance by reducing the surface roughness. The colour of the finish will be the natural colour of the metal.

POWDER COATING

– Excellent corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant finish.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all metals.

Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings. Also, powder coated parts have fewer appearance differences than liquid coated parts between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces. Curing time is significantly faster with powder coatings. ROBOFACTURING3D offers a clear or black powder coating, but also can be finished in multiple colours (available upon request).

BRUSHING

– Surface roughness Ra = 0.8 μm to 1.6 μm (micrometres). Roughness ISO from grade N6 to grade N7.
– Polishing the metal to improve the appearance.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to all metals.

Brushing the metal will allow a satin finish. It allows to improve the surface roughness of the part but does not improve corrosion resistance since it does not modify the mechanical properties of the metal. The colour of the finish will be the natural colour of the metal.

CHEM FILM (CHROMATE CONVERSION COATING)

– Improve the corrosion resistance and maintain the conductivity properties.
– Masking requirements to be indicated in the technical drawings.
– Available to aluminum and alloys.

A chemical coating will be applied to the metal to improve the corrosion resistance. It can be used as a base for paint. The colour of the finish ROBOFACTURING3D offers is clear, yellow or golden.
