Pioneer & Powerhouse
Fraser Steel is a pioneer in precision laser tube cutting. We were the first contract manufacturer in the nation to invest in a laser tube cutting machine. That was in 2001; since then we have acquired six more tube cutting lasers making our fleet the largest of any contract manufacturer in North America. Our unique combination of capacity, experience, and proven success makes us the preferred choice for high-precision laser cutting jobs.
Adding Value Without Adding Cost
Investing in laser tube cutting technology has allowed our team to trim manufacturing costs by reducing or optimizing the tube fabrication process. Parts that require several features such as slots, holes, miters, copes or profiles can be produced faster, with greater precision, and at a lower cost than traditional tube fabrication processes.
Precision & Efficiency
Fraser Steel’s BLM Adige laser tube cutting machines consolidate up to six different fabrication steps into one continuous process. In most applications this removes 60-80% of the labor required by conventional methods. These fully automated machines feature multi-axis laser systems that add real value to tubular assemblies and parts without adding tooling costs. They can produce:
- Multiple part features without multiple processes
- Enhanced accuracy and repeatability
- Closer tolerances
- Precise profiles, copes, miters and edges
- Odd and complex end shapes
- Accurate slots and holes
Parts produced on BLM Adige laser tube cutting machines typically hold a tolerance of +/- 0.005 inches. In practice Fraser-produced parts are much more accurate and consistent than parts produced by contract manufacturers.
