At IMS part of our Inventory Management Program is nesting multi-processed material per your requirement and holding the rest in the inventory for you until needed again. Keeping in mind at IMS, we have to 2 areas of inventory #freeofdebris and #humiditycontrolled storage . With this program, you will not have a high #scrap rate and per pound cost or lot charge minimum.
In this image: Material is #7075aluminum #sheet , #heattreated per temper and #2dlasercut per dimension.
When the client had requested for more, they did not have to go through the whole processing which saved them lead time and cost since the whole sheet was already processed as is- readily available- and off the shelf at IMS!

If you have any question, please call us or email us at service@imetalsource.com!

As our industry lean more towards light weight materials we want to have a service that caters to these such as cutting #composites
Here we have #2dlasercutting #carbonfiber #CFRP using #nitrogen assist gas.
Study shows by Dr. Mohammed Naeemm (www.industrial-lasers.com/cutting/article/16485689/laser-machining-fiberreinforced-composites):
"Traditional processing methods, such as mechanical milling and drilling, can result in chipping, heat damage, delamination, fiber pull-out, and severe wear to the tool. Recently, water jet cutting has been investigated but still causes some fiber delamination among other practical limitations"

Though if cutting using a #Yaglaser #N2 or #carbondioxide assist gas less #thermal damage can be caused. Which helps the worry of #heataffectedzone HAZ.
2nd image from the Dr. Mohammed: left is #CFRP cut using mechanical #shear , it is obvious to see the material edge inconsistency and
And right is cut using Laser with assist gas, seeing the quality edge after cut which is our goal. (Unquoted are summarized by IMS' CEO/R&D)
