Laser vs Waterjet Cutting

Specializing in laser precision

While both laser cutting and waterjet cutting are effective methods for cutting metal, you might be surprised to find that laser cutting can give you a better competitive edge. Due to its high precision, laser-cut parts require minimal finishing. But, that’s not the only advantage between the two.

Laser vs Waterjet Cutting

Benefits of Laser Cutting

  • Precision - Narrow kerf widths allow for greater detail, especially with intricate designs.
  • Less Waste - Laser cutting reduces material waste by using less raw materials (ie: abrasive materials and water.)
  • Faster - High-speed laser beams cut through product faster; in some cases 80-100x faster, which reduces overall production time, saving you money.
  • Excellent for thinner materials - Due to its precision, laser cutting’s narrow kerf widths and speed lend themselves well for thinner materials.
  • Versatility - Laser cutters can cut a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, wood, fabric, and more. They are also capable of performing additional operations such as engraving, etching, all on the same machine!
  • Higher volume, better value - Great for high volume orders, our laser cut sheet parts are the best option when parts are needed in bulk.
