Whether it's a uniquely cut metal chest emblem for a superhero, armor pieces, distinctive throwing weapon like Batman's batarangs used in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, or a distinctively crafted MacGuffin central to a storyline, sheets of metal can be quickly cut into almost any shape a props master could ask for.

While the film and TV industries have significant budgets, cost-saving is always welcome. OMTech Fiber Laser Cutting products can let you handle your metal cutting needs in-house or at the studio, saving precious time and money.

    Bonus Fun Fact:

    In the classic science fiction fantasy film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, legendary sound designer Ben Burtt created the stomping sound effects for the iconic AT-AT Walkers by recording an industrial metal sheet cutter and mixing it with the recorded sound of artillery shell explosions. While the metal sheet cutter in question may not have been a laser cutter, it paves the way for an intriguing concept: what rich palette of science fiction sound effects that can be crafted with our OMTech Fiber Laser Cutter
