Metal Fabrication Capabilities

OSH Cut offers on-demand metal laser cutting, deburring and graining, 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


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 and graining services for flat laser-cut metal parts. Deburring is currently performed by a 120-grit wide belt sander, and graining is performed with a 240-grit finishing belt, producing a brushed surface finish in aluminum and stainless.

OSH Cut does not currently have equipment to grind or apply a finer grain to materials after cutting.

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



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.

Laser Metal Cutting


Save Time and Headache

Avoid the time, headache, and potential for broken taps by letting us cut threads in your part.

OSH Cut offers metal tapping in tap sizes ranging from 6-32 to 1 1/2-6 (standard) and M3 x 0.5 to M36 - 4.0 (Metric). Our equipment makes metal tapping fast and cost-effective.

Select Tapping After Upload

Our instant quoting app automatically detects circular holes in your flat pattern or 3D model. To add tapping to your part, simply select the appropriate holes in your drawing after upload, and choose the tap size.

We'll automatically adjust the hole size as needed to accommodate the tap size that you selected. We report the adjusted hole size and target thread engagement / thread depth we used to calculate it, and the number of threads that will be cut in your selected material thickness.


Shipping in the USA

We ship most of what we manufacture, to all 50 states in the USA. OSH Cut currently only ships within the USA.

OSH Cut also supports LTL freight shipping. Our online system will automatically quote parcel and freight shipping costs during checkout, allowing you to select options based on your schedule and carrier preference.
