Laser cutting often is seen as a good prototyping method, but is mistakenly thought to be expensive for production. Companies that require precise micro-machined parts should keep in mind that laser cutting actually allows them to save money.
Laser cut parts can be spaced tighter than other methods, generating material savings. Additionally, laser cutting does not require the purchase of hard tooling every time design changes are made. Lasers do not get dull over time; therefore, there is no product fall out as the hard tools deteriorate.
Laser cutting technology has taken the precision parts industry to new levels, enabling increased complexity in design, higher cut quality and the ability to maintain tighter tolerances. A-Laser is accustomed to providing tight tolerance laser cutting solutions for a wide range of industries, fulfilling both prototype and production needs.

A-Laser is the precision parts division of FCT Assembly. The company began in 1994 to serve the northwest stencil and precision parts market. In 2006, A-Laser was brought into the FCT Assembly family of companies to focus specifically on the precision parts industry, but now at a national and international level.
