Associated Fastening Products, Inc. offers laser and waterjet cutting services, producing customized components utilizing our state-of-the-art 2, 3, 5, and 6-axis equipment. Complex shaping and burr-free cuts are accomplished with our precision laser cutting processes, featuring CO2 (Gaseous) and Nd:YAG (Solid State) laser types along with flying optic, moving material, and hybrid laser configurations. A range of materials can be precision cut including metals such as aluminum, heavy plate, ferrous metals, monel, inconel, stainless steel, steel, thin metal, and pipe, as well as non-metallic materials including acrylic, ceramic, paper, paperboard, plastic, rubber, and wood. Cuttings are made in a variety of sizes and diameters, achieving superior edge quality (from 1 to 5) with high-pressure waterjet cutting capabilities.

We handle prototype to production volumes, boasting rapid turnaround times with hot rush orders and pre-expedited ordering available. We are dedicated to customer satisfaction, giving personalized attention to each client. In addition to laser and waterjet cutting we offer a broad range of value added services including reverse engineering, plating, welding, assembly, kitting, special packaging, warehousing, and customized shipping programs. For more details about the precision laser and waterjet cutting services available, or our other ancillary services please see the table below or contact us directly.
