Northeast Laser, Inc. is a laser cutting, press brake forming and fabrication shop whose unique expertise is the prototype manufacturing of metal and composite parts. We have been providing prototype manufacturing services to companies in the Akron, Canton, and Cleveland area and across Ohio and the US since 2000. Pre-production prototypes are ideal for functional testing. Whether you need one or one hundred pieces, we are able to laser cut it, bend it, weld it, provide light fabrication and assembly then send it out for hardening, coating or anodizing.
Choose our expedited services for quick, accurate manufacturing of your prototype metal parts. We can produce small, intricate prototypes or larger items up to 10 feet long. We offer laser cut prototypes as a stand-alone service or as a time/cost saving step in prototype manufacturing that utilizes our press brake forming, prototype machining, welding and fabrication. Laser cutting is the an ideal method for cost effective prototype manufacturing replacing traditional prototype machining and expensive boring mill processes with dimensional accuracy at a fraction of the cost. Laser cutting combined with press brake forming is often able to form complex shapes out of one piece of material which eliminates expensive welding operations.
We manufacture prototype parts from a wide variety of materials including stainless, aluminum, armor plate, and exotic materials such as titanium and hastelloy. Using the latest manufacturing techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to produce prototype parts faster and as cost effectively as possible.
Let our technical staff provide a design-for-manufacturing evaluation of your part design. To get an estimate on our prototyping services, please supply a 3D model or DXF file using our Request a Quote form. If you have a part but do not have drawings, we can also provide reverse engineering services. We can work with virtually any 2D or 3D CAD files but preferred formats are:
- Solidworks Models (.sldprt)
- Autodesk Inventor Models

Examples of Our Prototype & Short Run Products
Industrial, heavy-duty application, oversized electrical fastener. Laser cut mild steel. We had to bend it and create custom tooling to add the rib. Small run production.
Prototype example pieces. Laser cut holes smaller than thickness of material. A demonstration of laser cutting precision.
Laser cut holes smaller than thickness of material. A demonstration of laser cutting precision.
Custom motorcycle brake rotor. The cardboard prototype was created first to test the fit, and final production piece features a laser cut profile and detail, ground finished, heat treated, steel.
16 gauge mild steel prototype manufacturing. Laser cut and formed. Custom gussets.
Precision thin wall laser cutting. Prototype example pieces.
This 3/4" bent steel sample piece utilizes custom tooling and press brake forming to create the heavy bend. In-house custom tooling can cut the production costs.
