Precision Metal Fabrication Since 1928

Flat Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a manufacturing process that can eliminate the need for machining on many engineering jobs, enabling you to save money on manufacturing costs. Laser cutting presents certain advantages over plasma cutting as this process is more precise and uses less energy when cutting steel and aluminum sheets.

The precision levels and edge quality achieved with laser cutting machines are better than traditional cutting methods, as the laser beam will not wear during the laser cutting process. Laser cutting technology also enables us to cut complex shapes without the need for tooling and at a similar or faster speed than other cutting methods.

Richards is on the cutting edge of technology utilizing 4 of the most advanced lasers in Utah – keeping tolerances between .002” and .006” on stock up to ¼” thick and .005” to .020” on plate up to 1.25” thick.  Out latest acquisition in laser technology is an 8000 watt Trumpf 5040 fiber laser with 4 meter x 2 meter shuttle tables.  This gives us great advantage on materials thinner than ¼” and redundant capacity for cutting thicker materials.  With the recent addition of a STOPA automated material storage system we are able to offer our customers great turnaround times on cut parts with superior edge quality.

Our material capacities are:

Laser cutting Carbon Steel: .005” to 1.25”

Laser cutting Stainless Steel: .005 to 1”

Laser cutting Aluminum: .005 to 1”
