Laser Cutting

Specializing in fast turnaround of thin-gauge components, Mercer Gasket & Shim offers world-class laser cutting services for applications where precision is a high priority and quality is essential.

Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art, dual axis CNC flying optic laser cutters that can rapidly and economically cut large or small parts with simple shapes or intricately detailed features. This advanced system is equipped with a 120” x 60” work table. Our CO2-powered equipment incorporates advanced computer controls that enable us to cut and etch materials up to .125” thick with extreme ±0.002” accuracy. Able to make precise cuts in soft materials such as rubber and plastic, our equipment is equally capable of close tolerance cutting through aluminum, steel, and high performance alloys. Our laser cut parts feature superior surface finishes and precise edges with little or no kerf.

All of our production and inspection processes are governed through an ISO 9001:2008 certified quality assurance program and our products meet standards set by leading industrial organizations and government agencies. Our team is flexible, reliable, and dedicated to providing our clients with exceptional product quality and personalized customer service.  Contact us today to learn more.
