Laser Cutting Services for the Nuclear Industry
The nuclear power industry relies on quality materials and extreme precision to guarantee the safety of its equipment and staff. To produce equipment for nuclear power plants, the industry requires the most cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, delivering accuracy, precision and speed to get their plants up and running. Laserfab can help your plant get the metal cutting services it needs with quality laser cutting for the nuclear industry.
Laser Cutting for the Nuclear Industry
Laser cutting is a type of metal cutting process — in this process, a sheet of metal is cut using a high-density energy beam. These beams, directed with mirrors, vaporize the sheet metal upon contact, creating clean cuts without warping the material or creating burrs or aberrations.
The high accuracy of this cutting method makes it a great choice for the nuclear industry, where accuracy and precision are required to ensure the safety of a plant. Compared to other cutting methods, laser cutting offers the following advantages:
- Minimal Imperfections: Laser cutting produces smooth cut edges, free of burrs and other imperfections that are often seen with other methods. Even better, the highly localized nature of laser cutting results in minimal heat distortion and warping, resulting in better final products.
- High-Precision Cutting: Laser cutting can maintain an extremely tight tolerance of around +/- 0.005", delivering excellent precision.
- Reduced Tooling and Scrap: High precision and reduced imperfections result in minimal secondary operation and part scrapping after the rounds of laser cutting. In turn, this means lower costs, quicker turnaround and better accuracy for the client.
- Broad Shape Capabilities: Custom laser cutting services for nuclear manufacturing can produce almost any two-dimensional shape, vastly increasing the production possibilities compared to other cutting methods.
- Extensive Material Possibilities: The nuclear industry makes use of a variety of metal types, any of which laser cutting can manage. From stainless steel to aluminum, it can all be handled with laser cutting from Laserfab.
The result of laser cutting is consistent quality, regardless of the shape or material of the product — this makes custom metal laser cutting services ideal for manufacturing parts for the nuclear industry.
