Laser cutting and etching services provided by HPL Stampings bring value-added services to our already outstanding metal fabrication capabilities. Laser cutting of sheet metal is the ideal process for light gauge sheet metal and suits prototype and short run production. We have more than 75 years of experience in metal fabrications, and we supply high-quality precision components to major industrial companies.

Utilizing the most recent advances in machine technologies, HPL is a leading fabricator in the industry. Our manufacturing equipment includes a TRUMPF TruLaser 1030 fiber laser cutting machine that enables us to cut high precision shapes with increased accuracy.

Because no hard tooling is required, this process produces flat parts quickly and effectively. Parts can also be etched/engraved at the same time without costly secondary operations. Our expert machinists are able to handle all types of parts, from simple to complex, while meeting all your exacting specifications.

HPL provides laser cutting and etching services that produce metal components with smoother surface finishes, holes with fewer burrs, and highly repeatable results. We work with a wide variety of materials and accept all electronic design files. For precision metal parts produced through the laser cutting method, your top choice is HPL.

We offer a full service metal fabricating approach and our skill, experience, and knowledge of industrial requirements allows us to pass on this expertise to each individual project. Contact us today to learn more about our capabilities and services.
