You agree to accept those charges due to rejection or modification of the order.

2.4. PROTOTYPES TEST

We love orders with a high number of units, but we want to make sure we are doing things right before starting to produce large batches. LB reserves the right to pause an order where the technical difficulty or the number of units is greater than usual. LB may propose via mail to the client user to carry out a manufacturing test prior to the original order. The amount of this test phase will be different depending on each case.

3. MATERIAL AND SPECIFICATIONS

3.1. ABSENCE OF SPECIFICATIONS

LB warn about various specifications on the industrial process carried out, such as Kerf, cutting tolerance, etc. The customer is knowledgeable and accepts the absence of usual specifications in laser cutting, including, but not limited: Existence of minimal cutting burrs on unfinished parts, non-homogeneous visual aspects on unfinished parts or surface marks from the supply itself on unfinished parts among others.

3.2. PROPERTIES OF MATERIAL

LB delivers safe parts, according to user specifications and with a superior finish. The customer is knowledgeable and accepts the following limitations and management during the performance of our work:

3.3.1 – POLISHED – Understanding polished as the finish selected for the surface of the parts including vibrated, brushed and shiny; LB applies the polish on one or both sides of the part, according to customer specifications. LB considers a valid finish to parts that have at least 80% of the total surface of the faces specified by the customer with the desired applied finish. The customer is aware that polishing can generate a decrease in the thickness of the parts, having an affection depending on the material such as the following

– Carbon Steel: Resistant to Polishing, low probability of loss of thickness.

– Galvanized Steel: No polishing is carried out on this material.

– Stainless Steel: Very Resistant to Polishing, low probability of loss of thickness

– Aluminum, Brass and Copper: Very weak, high possibility of thickness loss, up to 15% of the total thickness value.

3.3.2 – SANDBLASTING – The sandblasted finish will be present on both sides of the part. LB uses ultra-fine-grained white glass sand beads, generating clean and micro-rough surfaces on the parts. Sandblasting is not an aesthetic finish and does not protect against rust or material deterioration.

3.3.3 – FACES WITHOUT ASSIGNED FINISH – Understanding as faces without assigned finish those faces where an specific finish has not been chosen for them: LB will leave the faces without assigned finish the random appearance and finish of those available, complying with the standards of quality of service.

3.3.4 – BURRING – Understanding burring as the portion of excess material that appears irregularly at the edges of an object when it is cut; The parts with a Natural finish (2B, without finishing, or the particular designation for said material without treatment or polishing) and the pieces that contain back faces without assigned finish, may contain the usual burr of the laser cutting process for said material. For all other finishes the parts will be free of burrs. The customer can request the removal of burrs via email or comment in the order, this process will have an additional cost to the original order.

3.3.5 – LASER ENTRY / EXIT – Understanding laser entry / exit as the start and end point of the cut of all lines; The customer is knowledgeable and accepts the existence of a small geometric irregularity in each of the laser entry and exit. These will never be larger than 0.45mm x 0.45mm.

3.3.6 – FLATNESS – Understanding flatness as the geometric state such that if the part is placed on top of a perfect and calibrated plane, its entire surface would rest in total contact with said plane; LB has the appropriate and controlled processes so that no alteration in the flatness of the parts will occur during all the processes. Even so, the user is knowledgeable, responsible and accepts that the flatness can be altered or even generate internal tensions in the part due to physical causes such as:


– The rigidity of the material itself: In very large parts with / or very small thicknesses, the measurement and observation of flatness is difficult, due to its own stability.

– High cutting density: In parts with a high cutting density in specific areas, the increase of heat during cutting can cause geometric during the process.

– Delicate geometries: Bridges, parts with “frame” style or parts with areas where the width of the geometry approaches the nominal value of the thickness can be the cause of alterations in the final flatness of the part.

– Finishes: Premium brushed or shiny  (made by hand on one or both sides) and sandblasted finish, can influence flatness due to the high temperature and pressure they experience during the process.

 

3.3. TOLERANCES

 
LB keeps all its equipment calibrated and under a strict maintenance program. The dimensional tolerances of cuts are exactly those offered by LB machinery without losses due to wear or misuse. Overall dimensional shear tolerances are ± 0.2mm
