SHEET METAL LASER CUTTING & PUNCHING
Laser Cutting & punching Services
If you’re seeking laser cutting services, you’ll want flawless execution and precise detail for your design.
With our sheet metal lasers cutting, and sheet metal punching capabilities, we’re able to achieve that precision in our 275,000 sq foot facility. We make sure each part is cut perfectly — every single time.
Maximum sheet size: 72” x 144”
Maximum sheet thickness: With our lasers, we generally will cut aluminum up to 3/8″, mild steel up to 1″, and stainless steel up to 1/2″. With our shears, we will cut up to ¼”.
Our technology includes:
- (1) 2000 watt C02 6×12 laser
- (1) 4000 watt C02 5×10 laser
- (1) 4000 watt Fiber 6×12 laser
- MARCH 360 4 tray sheet loader system

- (2) Conventional hydraulic press brakes
- (3) Mechanical press brakes
Our in-house engineers are happy to talk you through your ideal laser cutting method or punching design for your specific job. We use value engineering (and cell manufacturing) to make the whole process smoother — from concept design to storage. Take advantage of our free, no-pressure value engineering consultations.
Sheet Metal Laser Cutting
Our laser machines use CNC to laser cut a programmed pattern into your material. The affected material vaporizes, melts, and is blown away by a jet of gas.
Our laser machines guarantee a high-quality surface finish.
And unlike machine tooling, a laser beam doesn’t wear out.
Our M.A.R.C.H (Multi Axis Rapid Cincinnati Handling System) 360 system is an evolution in laser automation and lights out operation. It offers fast cycle times and expandability in both material size and material storage.
Sheet Metal Punching
This process uses a press to force a tool, called a punch, through your sheet to make a hole.
This quick and efficient process allows us to create multiple shaped holes. It’s also the most inexpensive method for mid-to-high-volume projects.
Other Sheet Metal Fabrication Services
Because Blackstone is an all-in-one metal fabricator, our cutting and punching services can be combined several other services to consolidate costs and lead times. We also offer:
- Forming (including stamping)
- Custom fabrication
