KNIFE AND LASER CUTTING
COMPUTER-CONTROLLED PRECISION AT COMMERCIAL-SCALE VOLUMES
Through CAD Cut (a Web Industries company), we perform high-precision outsource knife and laser cutting on a wide range of sheet and rolled materials.
Knife and Laser Cutting
Automated knife and laser cutting systems provide extremely high precision cutting services on specialized fabrics, films, and composites through the use of carefully prepared CAD files. For our customers, outsourcing their ply cutting to CAD Cut can eliminate the need to invest in expensive in-house cutting equipment with its associated costs while streamlining the management of their supply chain.
Our large cutting surfaces and CAD-based nesting software systems can accommodate wide incoming material for maximum efficiency, and our cutting services economically scale from prototype- to commercial-scale volumes. For polymer-based materials that tend to fray, laser cutting can provide a sealed edge with outstanding quality, even on traditionally difficult to cut materials like Kevlar®. Temperature, humidity, and particulate-controlled cutting rooms are available, as is onsite material warehousing and freezer storage.
Experienced Operators and Flexible Output
Our cutting technicians are experts at nesting ply shapes in CAD files to maximize yields and minimize waste from high-value materials. As part of the automated cutting process, individual plies can be labeled or bar-coded for easy inventory management and material usage. Sets of plies can be combined into custom ply kits to provide our customers with an easy to order, easy to install single-SKU manufacturing supply solution.
Cutting Is Just The Beginning
We know that our cutting services are usually just one part of a larger product development and manufacturing process. Our customized cutting solutions are always designed with our partner’s manufacturing systems in mind, and they can be combined with our product life cycle planning and supply chain management services to create comprehensive systems to streamline product production and reduce daily supervision requirements.
