Any manufacturer or fabricator using Antimicrobial Copper alloys in production would benefit from the fiber laser cutting services offered by Ohio Laser. In 2008 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved the official registration of companies that make products from Antimicrobial Copper alloys. EPA registered business are permitted to make public health claims about their products’ ability to kill specific disease-causing bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

For example, one study shows that on certain Antimicrobial Copper alloy surfaces, more than 99.9 percent of MRSA "superbugs" die less than two hours at room temperature. MRSA is a growing and dangerous strain of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and increasingly is causing infections (sometimes resulting in death) in hospital and medical facilities.

Laser Cutting Copper Laser Cutting Brass Services

Laser cutting copper and laser cutting brass was until recently considered impractical by manufacturers of products made from copper sheet metal and brass sheet metal. However, ISO 9001:2008 certified Ohio Laser recently acquired advanced fiber laser cutting technology to cut copper sheet and cut brass sheet between .032” and .125” thick. Manufacturers and OEMs can now benefit from the company’s capability to cut non ferrous metals such as flat copper sheet and flat brass sheet. Common copper alloys cut at Ohio Laser include copper 110, copper 102, C194 copper, and 17510 copper (RWMA CLASS lll). Ohio Laser also provides fiber laser cutting services of steel sheet metal to .5”, stainless steel sheet to .25”, and aluminum sheet to .1875.” Click here if you have technical question or want a quote.
