Precise • Fast • Adaptable
High-quality Laser Punch Combo Service
Fairly new to the metalworking industry, today’s laser punch combo process is a game-changer for GTR Manufacturing customers and the precision sheet metal fabrication industry. Laser punch technology allows us to create intricate designs on sheet metal parts with a high degree of control and accuracy.
Adaptable and precise, our laser punch combo process combines the versatility of CNC sheet metal laser cutting with the efficiency of CNC sheet metal punching. Today’s laser punch machines have advanced control software with smart systems and intelligent turret setups, which make them highly flexible, productive, and reliable fabricating machines that can run “lights out” 24/7. This revolutionary technology saves our customers time, money, and materials.

Engineering & Design Support
GTR Manufacturing’s experienced engineering department can provide concepts, design changes, product enhancements, and reverse engineering. We will work with your team to deliver your parts at competitive costs.
Our sales, management, and engineering teams have experience in a wide range of industries and understand the changing needs of all of them. We work in close partnership with our clients in developing and refining product designs and production process planning to simplify manufacturing and create cost savings for your end product.
We have the capability to import and unfold your 3D models ( .dwg, .step, .iges, .sldasm, .ldprt, .dxf) built in Solid Works, Pro/E, and other modeling software. The model is unfolded and downloaded directly into the CAM process, reducing errors and assisting in short lead times for your sheet metal parts.
JIT / KANBAN
By using the Just-In-Time (JIT) inventory strategy, GTR Manufacturing schedules production to meet your ordering needs. We reduce costs by carrying less idle inventory, resulting in a quality product that is delivered on time at a lower price.
We pair JIT with the Kanban technique to manage our highly-efficient development process. We establish minimum and maximum quantities, fulfilling customer needs on a pull system. This method empowers us to reduce inventory for customers and suppliers and use lean production practices. In addition, we have full insight into your pipeline through an online portal, ensuring it’s always full.
Is GTR’s Laser and Punching Service Right For Your Next Project?
- Is your business in need of precision sheet metal fabrication that meets strict industry requirements?
- Have other manufacturers looked at your blueprints and ruled that your systems are “too difficult” or complicated to create?
- Are you looking for a straightforward laser punching but are surprised at how long the lead times are?
We are proud to simplify the precision sheet metal manufacturing processes by offering laser punching services under the same roof as our other premium services.
Our end-to-end capabilities speed up project timelines by lowering the risk associated with relying on external supply chains and give us complete oversight and control over the entire production process—ensuring uncompromising quality.
We haven’t built a semi-centennial (50-year-old) business by just making parts alone; our success is equally measured by the trust our clients continually place in us generation after generation.
