Brackets and Shims – Micron Laser

Brackets and Shims




    Micron Laser Technology provides a cost-effective solution for converting almost any sheet or roll stock materials into custom brackets or shims. Custom brackets or shims are generally laid out to maximize part quantity on specific sheet size.

    Fast delivery is one advantage to laser cut brackets and shims.  Expedited orders can be turned in 24 hours with an assortment of stocked materials.  Secondly, there is no requirement for expensive tooling or dies. This eliminates quality issues contributed to tooling wear. The first part will be produced with the same quality as the last.

    Modifications to your bracket or shim designs can be easily changed on the fly that quickly enables first articles for testing or prototypes. With a cutting kerf of 20um and holding similar tolerances, your custom bracket or shim can be produced with features not possible with traditional machining or dies.

    CAD system integration and custom file converters enable flexible, laser manufacturing from customer-provided data. Although most file types are accepted, the preferred file types are Gerber, Excellon, DXF, or other 2D formats. In many cases where non-scaled data is required, MLT will make the appropriate scaling or offsets to meet part dimensions.

    If you are concerned about compatibility of your data format or CAD/CAM tool, please contact MLT Sales for more information. 503-439-9000
