Combine drilling and cutting operations with 5-Axis laser cutting.

Bar and Tube Processing

In addition to traditional sawing and drilling operations, Northern also offers 5-axis laser cutting services for bar, tube, and structural shapes. 5-axis laser cutting can quickly cut a variety of shapes and profiles into a part, eliminating operations and reducing cycle times.

Case Study


Problem: One of our long time customers has been receiving stiff competition from China and Mexico, and we were eager to help them reduce their manufacturing costs. We identified a component part that required too many operations and used a costly band sawing process on tough stainless steel trapezoid tubing.

Solution: The component was rerouted for 5-axis laser cutting. The new process eliminated 3 saw operations and the corresponding band saw blade costs. Additionally, it eliminated 2 separate laser operations previously done on our flat laser cutting machines.

Results: The customer received price reduction on extremely competitive product, helping improve their position in the market.
