Fiber Laser Cutting Services

What can we do for you?

Wisconsin Metal Parts has two high-speed fiber lasers ready to serve you. We can cut your metal parts fast and accurately, and can product small, intricate pieces or larger items up to 10 feet long. Typical laser tolerances are +/-.005 (0.127mm) without any secondary operations. Our nesting software will find the best way to utilize a sheet of material so you get the best costing and most efficient cutting.

We can offer fiber laser cutting and marking as stand-alone services, or we can include secondary operations, including assembly services. Our team has decades of experience processing steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, brass, copper and even carbon fiber. Other services include pre-production prototypes, reverse engineering, engineering/design and in-house tool, gage and fixture building. While most of our laser cut parts do not need additional deburring, we also offer deburring services tailored to your specific needs.


Flat lasered parts are usually inspected in-house on our laser scanner to verify compliance with your part print or model. We also have a variety of other inspection instruments that can be used, including CMM Tell us what you need and we will find a way to accommodate it. Wisconsin Metal Parts is ISO 9001:2015 and ITAR certified. Cyber security is approved to NIST SP800-171 so your export restricted (ITAR) files are always secure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fiber Laser Cutting?

Fiber Laser Cutting is a process where banks of diodes create light that is channeled and amplified through a fiber optic cable. Once amplified, the light is straightened/collimated and focused by a lens onto the material to be cut. Creating this light makes fiber lasers much more efficient than CO2 lasers. Fiber lasers are more electrically efficient, have less maintenance costs and allow for higher speeds as well.

Although our lasers can process thicker material, our optimal thickness in steel & stainless steel is 0.060”.

We also can process aluminum up to ¾” and copper up to 3/16” thick. We have cut up to 1” Steel but prefer the cut off to be 3/8”

Steel, Galvanized Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, Treadplate, Aluminized, Perforated, Rigidized, Carbon Fiber, Tungsten and Titanium.

In a production setting we can typically hold +/-.005 (0.127mm) comfortably. Tighter tolerances can be held using a laser but more inspection is needed to insure consistency while running parts. We also have the ability to machine features as a secondary operation when tighter tolerances are needed.

Each type of laser has benefits. Our 5K fiber lasers are 2-3x faster than a C02 laser in materials .25” or thinner with a superior edge condition. A C02 laser can cut thicker materials more efficiently. The fiber laser can also cut highly reflective materials. Cutting reflective material on a C02 laser can cause premature wear of the mirrors that guide the beam. A fiber laser does not have mirrors and relies on a fiber optic cable to deliver the beam.

We have agreements in place where we process and ship orders within 3 days. Others might take 2-4 weeks. It depends on the materials needed and if there is any painting or plating involved. With some good planning we can work out a delivery schedule that meets your needs.

We can do low volume prototyping, usually as pre-production runs. However, repetitive volume is what fits our equipment best since everything is CNC controlled and we have material handling automation.

While this takes slightly longer to set up, we make up for it with speed and repetitive accuracy.

Yes, we have cut perforated material and expanded metals before. While it is not the most efficient, it can be done.

We do not cut plastic or wood with our lasers due to the fire hazard involved when also processing metals.

We have several CMM’s, including a Romer Arm, and our Virtek Laser Scanner can inspect flat patterns in a matter of seconds.
