Laser Cutting

Laser cutting offers superior, tight tolerances and the best cut surface when compared to other flame cutting processes. The maximum plate capacity for out laser cutting process is 60' x 120 ". Thickness range for cutting carbon steel plate is 24 ga - 3/4 ".

Other Advantages include:
• High quality cuts
• High precision cut parts
• Higher speeds than precision plasma under 1/8 in.
• Minimal clean up
• Narrow kerf width
• Smallest heat affected zone

Oxygen Plasma Cutting


Consider Jet Fab's solution to the perfect edge: our highly-efficient Oxygen Plasma Burning System. Utilizing state-of-the-art plasma burning technology, the Oxy-Plasma system specializes in producing cleaner edge cuts on thin-gauge carbon steel. 

Our cutting system can burn materials at up to 300" per minute on a 60'x120" bed.  The result is large volume projects completed with virtually no down-time.  Our Oxygen-Plasma System also assures best-cut quality on carbon steel with excellent tolerances and with minimum bevel and waste.

Flame Cutting

Jet Fabricators produces flame cut pieces (rectangles, ID's, OD's and per print items).  Our flame cutting machines allow us to flame cut carbon plate as thin as 1/16" and up to 2" thick.

Advantages include:
• Low capital investment
• Low operating cost
• Good edge quality
• Thick material capability
