Metals Processing Capabilities


High precision plate laser cutting

Plate Laser Cutting

  • Laser tolerances in stainless & aluminum plate up to 3/4”,
    carbon plate up to 1”
  • Maximum plate capacity 80” x 159”
  • High precision and repeatability on cut parts
  • Produces near net of finished products to your print
  • Minimal heat affected zone
  • Minimal to no clean-up
  • Etching (not on aluminum) and “stitch-cutting” available
  • Potential secondary processes:
    • Tapping from #10 - 3/4” and M5 - M12 available depending on size and thickness
    • Forming
PlateLaser_SmallPic_Left
With a maximum plate capacity of 80” x 159”, Alro is able to cut a wide range of parts.
PlateLaser_SmallPic_Middle
With its narrow kerf width, the plate laser is able to achieve better yields.
PlateLaser_SmallPic_Right
High precision and repeatability on cut parts make the plate laser ideal for production runs.
