Metal Fabrication Capabilities

OSH Cut offers on-demand metal laser cutting, deburring and edge rolling, and bending services.

Metal Laser Cutting

Material Thicknesses

OSH Cut offers metal blank cutting in material thicknesses up to 1.0" in steel and aluminum. We currently offer stainless thicknesses up to 5/8" thick, copper up to 1/8" thick, and brass up to 1/4" thick.

Our minimum material thickness is 0.02", but varies depending on the material.

Laser Metal Cutting

Equipment

OSH Cut cuts metal parts using an 8 kW Mazak Optiplex, and a 10 kW Trumpf 3030. Both machines offer high quality, fast, and precision cutting in all supported materials.

Laser Metal Cutting

Cutting Tolerances

OSH Cut's standard tolerances are +/- 0.005" for most materials and thicknesses.

Depending on material, cut density, and part aspect ratio (length over width of your part) heating can cause your part to expand during the cut, and shrink when it cools. On long narrow aluminum parts in particular, this can cause your finished part size to be smaller than expected. Contact us if you have any concerns about your parts.

Flat Finishing

Finishing Options

OSH Cut offers deburring, edge rolling, and limited graining services for flat laser-cut metal parts. Deburring is currently performed by a 120-grit wide belt sander, and edge rolling is performed using 180-grit rollers.

OSH Cut does not currently have equipment to grind or apply a finer grain to materials after cutting. Linear grain applied is with a 120-grit wide belt.

Laser Metal Cutting

Finishing Quality

OSH Cut is on a journey to be able to offer perfect parts, in terms of burr, surface finish, and edge quality. Offering truly perfect, consumer-ready parts is outside our current capabilities, so you can expect some parts to have minor cosmetic defects and surface scratching that may require post operations to correct.

This isn't where we want to be, and we are working on it! Perfect parts will require additional processes, equipment, and systems, and we'll get there.

Laser Metal Cutting
Bending

Materials

OSH Cut offers bending in steel, stainless, aluminum, and copper, in thicknesses up to 1/4". See our material catalog for more details about supported materials and thicknesses.

Laser Metal Cutting

Bend Parameters

Bending parameters like bend radius, k-factor, and minimum flange lengths can be found in our material catalog for all supported materials.
