Laser Cutting

ProtoCafe offers laser cutting, marking, and engraving services on an amazing variety of materials with high detail and accuracy. Our laser systems produce custom, one-off items to identical mass-produced parts

  • Cutting: the laser beam cuts completely through material along the designated path, creating crisp, high quality edges.
  • Marking: the laser beam modifies the material surface, creating permanent marks without removing material or impacting surface integrity.
  • Engraving: the laser beam vaporizes material to a user-controlled depth, creating a flat surface with a high quality and consistent finish.

For a quote, we require the desired quantity, a vector file (.DWG/.DXF/.AI), and the material of choice. We are more than happy to experiment on exotic materials supplied by clients!

  • Plastics
  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Stone
  • Ceramic
  • Rubber
