For a sharp edge or joint, some projects require the section of sheet metals to be tapered. Typically, this tapering process is done with a milling machine or by hand.
At Kikukawa, we offer taper cutting sheet metals with the single mode fiber laser cutting machine, in addition to other metalworking methodologies. The benefit of using the fiber laser cutting machine is that it can move in three-dimensional axis (x, y, z), with high precision. This means that the lead-time is shorter, and that taper cutting curves are possible.
Applicable tapering angles range from 36-degrees to 90-degrees.
Restrictions on the curvature or applicable metal sheet sizes vary depending on the material and the product shape.
Kikukawa is able to respond to various metal cutting needs; from taper cutting to other cutting needs – Kikukawa actualises various architectural products with shearing, milling, turret punch, laser cutting machines and at times with expert handicraft. Please do not hesitate to contact us for consultations or fabrication feasibility.
