Do you cut metal?
Are you looking for metal laser cutting but don't know where to start?
Have you worked with a metal laser cutting company that didn't understand the unique needs of a creative?
The first question most people ask me is, "Do you cut metal?" The answer is: "YES!"
After much searching I now offer metal laser cutting through an area metal shop--one with the experience and problem-solving skills artists and artisans are looking for.
Wondering why can't I cut metal on my laser cutter? Laser cutters designed to cut materials such as acrylic, wood, and paper are not strong enough to cut metal. When it comes to laser cutting metal, as well engraving and marking metal (more on these later), industrial machines with different capabilities are needed for each process--and most shops specialize in only one method, making it challenging for individuals to access the technology.
This is where I come in. I will guide you through the process and manage the technical know-how, so you can focus on what is important--your artistry.
Have a project that combines metal laser-cutting with laser-cut wood, acrylic, paper, or fabric? Not a problem. I will coordinate the different processes, so you don't have to work with multiple manufacturers or stress about whether the different materials will fit together.
How is laser-marking different from laser-engraving? Laser marking changes the surface color of the metal. It is a change that can be seen but not felt. Laser engraving vaporizes material at varying depths, leaving a physical depression that can be felt. Laser marking is done at FreeFall Laser while the laser-engraving of metal is done off-sight with a metal engraving specialist.
