Several in-house lasers allow for rapid prototype and accurate alignment jig creation. Our 150W and 40W CO2 lasers can cut up to 0.5” thick acrylic and plywood along with a variety of other materials. These laser-cut parts have been utilized for bond alignment fixtures, weld fixtures, mockups, even vehicle alignment fixtures. The 80Amp plasma cutter provides cutting of up to 0.75” thick aluminum and steel for similar ground support equipment and fixturing needs.


Our 30W Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) laser can mark/engrave an array of materials. It can even make colored part markings on stainless steel and titanium. Add serial numbers, company logos, or instructions to your parts.

For more precise work we have a great relationship with a nearby waterjet vendor.
