Computer-Aided Design

Laser Specialists utilizes leading laser cutting software technologies and programming software to provide you with the prototype and specialty production parts you need. An important segment of our work involves pre-production testing and prototype development. Our laser cutting expertise helps many of our customers develop quality parts in a rapid fashion without tooling. We provide laser cutting services that achieve maximum productivity at minimal costs. At the heart of our precision laser cutting services you will find state-of-the-art CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) software and services.

Laser Cutting CAD and CAM Services

The highly-skilled team at Laser Specialists provides niche laser cutting services by offering:

  • Complete CAD math data processing

  • Complete fixture design capabilities

  • Laser cutting for prototyping

  • Laser cutting for low-volume production, medium-volume production, and high-volume production.

Our programmers are highly skilled in all aspects of 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional G-code and vector-based software language. Replace entire sentence with “Customer data is often interpreted, cleaned up, and transformed into a wireframe cutter path which is then transmitted directly to our laser processing machines. This trial part gives the customer a chance to assess the component’s design characteristics before production begins. Any changes at this point are accomplished easily on the CAD/CAM system. The entire process is streamlined through direct customer-to-programmer access. Our laser cutting technology is heavily relied on and continues to support customer needs throughout the design, trial, launch and production product phase.

Off-line 5-axis Programming from Laser Specialists

We help improve customer “turnaround time” using CATIA based CENIT FastTrim/LaserCut software. This laser cutting software significantly reduces overall laser cutting programming and process time. Also, it reduces the number of edits required to get to buy off. Our highly skilled staff has developed a process to effectively design and build uniquely engineered steel egg crate fixtures for prototype runs  to ensure repeatable parts and overall quality. For production we are also capable of designing and manufacturing specialty automated fixtures with pneumatic clamps, proximity switches, and part actuation features. Our CAD Department accepts computer data in CATIA, IGES, DXF, DWG, STEP, and STL format.
