Matrix Metalcraft expands with 5-axis laser center

Matrix Metalcraft (Clinton Township, MI) recently purchased a high-performance VZ1 Mitsubishi Laser with a pallet changer, maximizing process time and increasing capacity. Founded in 2000 when it installed its first Mitsubishi 3-axis laser cutter, the company will now have three laser systems in operation, two of which are 5-axis machines.

The company's new cutting machine brings new capabilities relating to speed, accuracy, and flexibility for a wide range of complex laser applications. The cutting parameters measure 122 in. in the X axis, 87 in. in the Y axis, and 33 in. in the Z axis. Integration of a pallet changer allows for jobs to be set up while the machine is processing its current job. Additionally, pallet changes only take 60 seconds, optimizing cut time and giving Matrix more capacity to branch into new markets.

"Our goal is to remain cost effective for our customers while delivering the highest quality and quicker turnaround. Mitsubishi helps us meet increasing customer demands and provides us the opportunity to expand our customer base into newer industries, particularly, aerospace and defense," explains Matrix Sales Director, Ryan Willette. "With the increased range of cutting parameters, we are now able to process larger components without having to perform multiple set ups."

Matrix Metalcraft specializes in prototype and short-run production work, offering metal stamping, 3 and 5 axis laser cutting, machining, turning, and assembly capabilities. For more information, contact Matrix Metalcraft at 586-469-9611, visit, or email
