Laser cutting leather serves leather craftspeople in 2 ways. Volume Production & Precision cutting. When leather artists cut by hand, often lines are imperfect and fraying occurs. Laser Cutting creates perfect cut lines, .001” accuracy & repeatable cuts. During construction of parts, for example, in wallets photographed here, leather craftspeople appreciate accurately cut parts for easier assembling and sewing parts. CNC Lasers are also able to cut diamond shaped sewing holes leather artists require.

Outsourcing vs. In-House Manufacturing:Choose Laser Outsourcing

Why Companies should outsource Laser Cut & Engraved Products, Parts, & Service.
Small to Medium sized businesses often cannot afford high priced machinery. Larger businesses may NOT want to spend in-house time and internal costs for volume production. It is to the advantage of most businesses, therefore, to outsource parts fabrication to save material and machining costs. More than this, it is costly to hire employees needing to be trained to design using CAD, Computer Aided Design programs, then run high-tech machinery, such as CNC, computer numeric controlled equipment.

Other outsourcing advantages are:

  • When businesses have uncertain projection for future volume production.
  • Frequent design changes, and the resulting fixturing and machining changes which follow.
  • Lack of in-house precision machining knowledge and expertise. Outsourcing helps companies gain access to higher technologies.
  • Lack of storage space to store extra inventory of volume Products and Parts. Scheduling outsourced parts manufacturing as needed eliminates need for storing backstock.
  • Knowledge of machining capabilities and limitations, needs to be considered when designing products. Therefore, rely on input and expertise of outsourced laser cutting and engraving specialists.
Choose Laser Outsourcing
  • Outsource specialists, such as CuttingEdgeLaser, are available to help co-design and develop parts and products.
  • Outsourcing minimizes overhead costs by not needing to own equipment. Businesses then have a greater handle of cash flow and easier accounting.

Cutting Edge Laser recently completed a production job for a company requesting silicone rubber cutting.

This material cuts very cleanly and accurately using our specific laser beam wavelength. Silicone rubber products and parts withstand heat, moisture, elongation, tearing, is extremely stable, is unaffected in contact with many chemicals, and is even fire resistant. Silicone rubber after laser cutting can then be subjected to -100 F to +400 F. This enables silicone rubber business to business production parts to be laser cut accurately and quickly. Silicone parts cut with our laser are exceptionally well suited for:

O-rings Gaskets and Washers
Automotive Parts/Applications Lasered Wiring Applications
Cooking/Food Prep Tools Food Storage Items
Laser Cut Silicone Apparel Applications Sports Products
Sports Wear Foot Wear
Electronics Home Hardware
Machine Parts High Temperature Machine Insulators
Freezer Products Medical Applications and Devices
Adhesive backed parts and products Aviation and Aerospace Products

Silicone Rubber Laser Cut PartsSilicone is available in solid sheets, tubes and strips. Parts can be molded, then identification can be laser engraved. Silicone rubber maintains it’s shape even after much pressure applied for long periods of time (ie: gaskets and washers). Some products using silicone rubber are: cell phones, communication electronics, computer products, TV’s, plumbing products. Silicone material appropriate for laser cutting and engraving has gone through a platinum curing process. Much research and usage of silicone rubber is evident in high-tech products since the early 1980’s.

Contract Cutting Edge Laser to cut your business’s parts and products. We strive for precision cutting, and maintain very accurate repeatable volume production.
