Precision Parts Cutting

Precision parts are mean parts of high mechanical or scientific accuracy. High precision laser cutting involves the development and production of parts for multiple industries such as watches, jewelry, consumer electronics, and others.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. Manufacturing jewelry parts, stamps, musical and medical instruments from brass has a long history. Precision parts made of brass are still widely used. For example, in the watchmaking industry, gears are made of brass.

Femtosecond lasers enable such brass processing with extremely high precision. 

PHAROS or CARBIDE lasers are the most common choices. Equipped with BiBurst, both lasers can help to improve processing efficiency and quality.
