How One Metal Fab Shop Cut Costs with the LaserCube Flatbed Laser Cutting System


About MµShield

MµShield is a family-run magnetic shielding and precision metal fabrication shop with 60+ years of experience. They are a global leader in processing Mumetal, a soft ferromagnetic material used in aerospace, military, and medical device manufacturing. 

The Challenge

Although their Londonderry, NH shop boasts a 19,000 sq. ft. floorplan, the team was searching for a laser cutting solution that not only had a small footprint, but also was easy to operate. They also needed the flexibility to precision cut thin gauged foils from .004” to .125” steel sheets.

The Solution

LaserCube Flatbed Laser Cutting System is a 4×4 flatbed laser cutting machine, perfect for processing a wide variety of low volume parts. Its high accuracy encoders allow for the high precision work the team required, while also making clean cuts to reduce post production buffing.

“Because the IPG laser saved us time and cut down on our production cost, it’s actually enabled us to be more competitive in our market and offer better pricing to our customers.”
– Brett Joy, Vice President of MµShield

User-Friendly Interface Cuts Down on Training Time

Within a day or two of IPG’s hands-on-training, the MµShield team had their LaserCube up and running making parts. It only took a few months to realize that LaserCube was helping them save time and money, while allowing them to increase their productivity.

Grow Your Business With LaserCube

From Mumetal to stainless steel, LaserCube Flatbed Laser Cutting System can laser cut a variety of metals. This allowed MµShield to take on more custom jobs and provide better pricing to their customers. And as their company grows, they know that the LaserCube will grow with them.
