Choosing a Laser Cutting Company

If we talk about the innovations in technology, we can’t go on without mentioning laser technology.  Laser cutting uses a high-power laser which is directed through optics and computer numerical control (CNC) to direct the beam or material. This technology can be used for a variety of applications, including cutting and scribing metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel and titanium. However, the process can also be used for the industrial cutting of plastic, wood, ceramics and more.

AWC Industries is a leading provider of laser cutting services in the Chicago and across Illinois. The majority of our sheet metal fabrication projects start with our laser cutting equipment, which can accurately cut sheet metals to exacting dimensions.

What is Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting is a precise method of cutting a design from a given material using a CAD file to guide it. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. Here at AWC Industries we use Bystronics Laser Technology, by using this method we can cut precision parts to meet your specifications, resulting in a fast turnaround time.
