Laser cutting provides precision cutting via a laser guided by a CAD file. CO2 lasers are one of the primary types of lasers used for this purpose. The process involves firing a laser that cuts by melting, burning or vaporizing a workpiece or base material. Laser cutting offers a fine level of cutting detail on many different types of materials. While a CO2 laser cannot cut through ceramics or plastics due to the heat involved.
Waterjet cutting is the most versatile process for cutting complex shapes. It uses an ultra-high-pressure water stream to carry an abrasive grit, which cuts through almost any material. This process provides a smooth, precision cut. Waterjet cutting can cut virtually any material with the exception of highly brittle surfaces such as tempered glass.
What Machinery is Used for Laser & Waterjet Cutting Services?
Our facility contains multiple advanced cutting tools to support our laser and waterjet cutting services.
Utilizing a 6-axis Mazak Space Gear Mark II laser machine, Harvan Manufacturing Ltd. performs 2D and 3D laser cutting, engraving, marking, and fabricating operations on metal sheets as well as tubular structures. The CO2 laser cutting machine enables us to cut holes, slots, and special features on mild steel materials up to 0.8” thick and stainless-steel materials up to 0.375” thick. Our laser cutting machine can process metal sheets up to 60” in width and 120” in length.
The laser cutter can be fitted with a tube chuck for handling pipes, tubes, and structural shapes. In addition, the 6-axis capability of our laser cutting machines allows us to cut multiple features on sheets and machined components in a single setup. The Mazak Space Gear Mark II laser’s non-contact profiler enables us to fabricate parts without any burr or contamination.
Harvan fabricates a large range of custom parts for our customers. We can laser cut intricate features on stainless steel and mild steel materials with fine kerf widths of up to 0.012”, while maintaining an accuracy of 0.005”. We can also support you in designing and cutting custom parts.
Harvan Manufacturing Ltd. also has a Flow Mach 4 Dynamic WaterJet Cutting System which handles cut thicknesses up to 24” from virtually any material, whether wood, steel, stainless, copper, aluminum, foam, or plastic. The envelope is 13’ by 6.5’ allowing us to handle larger sheets of material.
