A-Laser Announces Ability to Cut Foam Gaskets

Nov 05, 2009

BEAVERTON, OR — October 2009 — A-Laser, a division of FCT Assembly and a premier laser cutting service specializing in the ablation of ultra-thin metals and plastics, announces the ability to use its laser technology to cut foam gaskets.

A-Laser continuously looks to expand its laser cutting service knowledge base. Dense foam materials used in aerospace and avionics now are being used in thicknesses that are laser machineable.

A-Laser has numerous customers testing applications that involve laser cutting foam products, and expect to see more as tolerances tighten. The company’s ability to hold 12 µm tolerances enables A-Laser’s customers’ products to hold a tight seal, improving their product quality. Laser micro-machining applications are growing and A-Laser’s laser cutting service will remain at the forefront of these applications.

“Our capability in tight tolerance part processing makes us the ideal source for Aerospace and Avionics companies worldwide,” said Josh Saunders, VP of FCT Assembly’s Parts Division.

A-Laser provides high cutting edge precision and position accuracy (±0005"), fine contours and virtually radius-free internal edges (<20 µm beam), and contact-free material processing to prevent material distortion. Same day quotes and 24-hour turnaround also are available.
