“They are the quickest, best quality, and almost unbelievably, the most affordable company I’ve had the pleasure to do business with. We were able to crowdfund over $225,000 for our first multi-tool thanks to SendCutSend!” — Michael O’Donnell, GOAT Tools

Custom Laser Cutting Metal With Unmatched Precision

SendCutSend only uses the highest quality materials when it comes to laser cutting metal and sheet metal laser cutting services. Whether you’re prototyping for your business or building a car in your garage with laser cut parts, making the right choice when it comes to your material can make or break your project. 

From popular metals like Stainless Steel, Copper, and Aluminum to Brass and Mild Steel, the best type of metal (or sheet metal) will depend on your project, but with the many considerations you already have to take into account—weight, aesthetic, durability, strength—quality should never be one of them. Depending on the application, SendCutSend will guide you through what metals work best for your project, what type of tolerances you’ll need to consider, and how you can further improve the precision of your parts with finishing processes that are unique to your material and application. 

Cutting ABS, Acrylic, Delrin, HDPE, Polycarbonate, & UHMW Sheet Plastics

SendCutSend started out as a metal manufacturing company, sure, but when our customers asked for more affordable materials that were easier to machine, could save space, and were more lightweight, we delivered. Sheet plastics consisting of ABS, Acrylic, Delrin, HDPE, Polycarbonate, and UHMW give projects a wider range of attributes and abilities that metal simply can’t match. 

When it comes to laser cutting sheet plastic, SendCutSend can help you understand what purpose each of our sheet plastics serve, their pros and cons, price points, common applications, and more so you can get the custom laser cut plastic parts you need, at a fraction of the cost. 

Waterjet Cutting Carbon Fiber — Choosing the Right Composite Material for Your Project

Let’s talk about the black sheep of the laser cutting materials world. Composite materials aren’t really metal or plastic, and each and every one of them is different from the other. SendCutSend offers ACM (Aluminum Composite Material), Carbon Fiber, Cork (Gasket Grade), G10/FR-4, and Le Phenolic Linen (Micarta) to those who have browsed countless material catalogs and still can’t quite find the right material to fit their application. 

One thing to keep in mind when it comes to laser cutting carbon fiber, or any composite material for that matter, is that the manufacturing process is quite different from the plastic or metal laser cutting process. For example, ACM uses the CNC Machine, Cork is laser cut, and the rest of the materials mentioned above are cut on a Waterjet—but don’t stress. SendCutSend will show you how to select the right composite material for your project, can help you compare costs, walk you through the manufacturing process, and provide you with a breakdown of all the different material properties and restrictions each composite has. 

Additional Laser Cutting Services to Improve Your Parts

Clean edges, tight tolerances, and beautifully-crafted finishes are just the beginning. SendCutSend offers a full line of services that will bring your project (and your parts) to life. With custom parts starting at just $1, we offer quantity discounts up to 70% whether you order 1 part or 1,000,000+. 

From CNC Routing and Waterjet Cutting to Anodizing, Bending, Countersinking, Plating, Powder Coating, Tapping, Deburring, and Hardware Installation, you can rest assured that your laser cut parts will be high-quality (did we mention our linear deburring process is included at no cost, too?). We want you to have the best-looking parts when they arrive at your door, and to do that, accuracy will always be our top priority. 

Hardware Installation Services

Let us help you solve your design problems. Hardware installation at the fabrication stage simplifies projects and improves performance. Hardware provides options when there is little to no access to the backside of a part after installation or in place of tapping in thin or soft materials. At SendCutSend, we proudly use PEM fasteners, the industry standard for nuts, studs, and stand-offs. And thanks to their lightweight design and strength, fastener insertion on your custom metal parts is not only quick but also cost-effective. 

Whether you need Tapping Services to form threads in the holes of a part to add hardware later, or want to use our Countersinking Services to make your hardware heads sit flush against the surface of your parts, our team of highly-trained machinists (and state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies) have made it easier than ever to design, order, and receive precision laser cut parts for a variety of different projects and applications anywhere in the U.S. (and Canada).  

Bending & Forming Services

Ready to make your 2D metal project into a 3D part? CNC Bending is where you should start. SendCutSend bends laser cut parts to your exact specifications within one degree of accuracy or better to ensure your final product fits within tight tolerances—making a difficult process way easier than it used to be. 

Wait, Let Us Finish

Choosing the right finish for your laser-cut parts will make them more durable and increase their lifetime. With Anodizing and Plating Services that increase your parts’ resistance to corrosion and wear, and Powder Coating Services that give your laser and waterjet cut parts a bold, long-lasting finish (while increasing their resistance to damage), SendCutSend can help you get your parts laser cut and finished, all in one place.
