You may want to have our laboratory laser cut your material. You may decide this because your material is not on the list above. Or, you want to see and approve the laser cut quality. Or, simply seeing is believing.

Write us a letter stating what you want to have laser processed, the quality and speed necessary, and what you would like to see sent back to you. Ship us your materials along with the letter and we will laser process at no charge to you. Send your samples to: Attn: Laser Processing, World Lasers, Inc., PO BOX 95, Exton , PA 19341 , Phone: 484-359-8906

Our laser laboratory can provide laser services that give you innovative, cost effective solutions to problems relating to drilling and contour cutting. Delicate and intricate parts can be drilled and cut in a wide variety of materials. We perform unique and routine drilling and cutting tasks from design to high volume fully automated production.

And remember, with laser cutting you get. . .

  • No part deformation from tool pressure.
  • Narrow keff permits more dense layouts for more efficient material utilization and reduced secondary operations.
  • Drilling and cutting on a wide variety of materials.
  • No tool war or breakage.
  • A process that is highly controllable, repeatable and accurate.
  • A non-contact process resulting in greatly simplified tooling.
  • CAD/CAM and CNC means that engineering changes can be made quickly and efficiently.



When laser marking and engraving you get. . .

  • A permanent mark
  • High density (characters as small as 0.012 high)
  • Non-contact (eliminates distortion of delicate parts and simplifies tooling.)
  • Marking of hard to reach areas.
  • Highly legible, even with small characters.
  • Typically does not need pre or post-processing.
  • A highly accurate and repeatable laser mark.
  • A wide variety of fonts and graphics via software.
  • Automatic sequential serializing.



Three general methods for laser marking and engraving are:

1. The material removal process provides typical depths from 0.001 inch to 0.002 inch. Heavier marks can be made from 0.003 inch to 0.004 inch with maximum depth of 0.005 inch.

2. Anodized aluminium marks very well with excellent contrast between the color and the bared aluminum. Penetration into the aluminum is typically less that 0.0005 inch.

3. The selective thermal process works very well with stainless steel. There is no surface upset at all. The resulting blue or black color provides high contrast with the metal.

Depending on your requirements, calculating the total cost of ownership of a laser machine and its value to you can be simple or complex. For some, there is no substitute for laser processing. For many, alternative cutting tools and methods are compared to laser machinery. Sometimes, the computer controlled machinery saves labor and time. There may be less waste in a laser process because it is non-contact cutting.

World Lasers can help you calculate your cost of ownership and compare that to the value to you. This service is offered free of charge for less-time consuming prospective buyers. However, if there are a large number of variables, and you need assistance, we can help for a fee. We are experienced at working with clients to derive cost-benefit analysis, including what-if scenarios. Also, we can generate professional charts, diagrams and other materials so that you can formally present your findings to your company.

In some cases, you may find it necessary to have a number of laser tests completed. World Lasers will complete the first laser test for free. After that, standard laboratory fees apply. We will work with you to establish the costs prior to running the jobs.

At World Lasers, we look forward to guiding you through your evaluation of laser processing. And, if it makes sense for you to purchase a laser, we can specify and provide the best match for your needs.
