Laser Cut Metals, Plastics, Ceramics and More.

Laser cutting is used throughout many different industries from automotive to electronics manufacturing. Thanks to its unmatched precision, flexibility and superior cut quality, laser cutting is replacing conventional machining processes like plasma and oxy-fuel cutting.

Lasers can cut nearly any material—including glass, metals and plastic—and are ideal for both simple and complex parts. A non-contact method, laser cutting leaves no marks, reduces the risk of contamination and requires no extra finishing.

Methods include:

  • Thermal Laser Cutting. This method utilizes the light from the laser’s aperture. A lens focuses the beam onto the surface of the material to melt, burn or vaporize the localized area.
  • Gas-assisted Laser Cutting. This method uses gas-assisted laser cutters, which utilize a jet of gas coaxial to eject the molten material from the cut—resulting in a high-quality finish.

Laser Cutting Capabilities

from cutting plastics and ceramics to cutting thin metals, our laser cutting technology is adaptable to many types of materials.

Laser Cutting Ceramics

Our laser systems focus energy onto ceramic surfaces—cutting parts with precision and minimal kerf widths. Choose from full ablation or scribe-and-break techniques.

The Absolute Best Customer Service Around

Working with the entire Control Micro Systems team on our project was a pleasure. CMS was capable of meeting and exceeding our goals. They successfully designed and built a machine which increased our throughput by 550%! We are so glad we chose to move forward with CMS.

Jim B., Custom Wire Technologies, Inc.

In the three years ACR has owned the CMS laser, it has worked flawlessly. In the few instances where ACR needed support in programming, CMS was quick to respond.

Mike S., ACR Electronics, Inc.

CMS have been excellent partners in the development of new, complex equipment for our business. CMS built multiple machines for us. Each machine had a different purpose, however the CMS team worked openly & honestly with us to agree on optimal solutions for each one.
