Custom gaskets and obsolete parts for vintage car restoration are two more ideal applications. This is an area where our ability to fill very small orders proves to be a big asset. We can create the parts you need out of paper, plastic, metal, foam, rubber or cork. Industry-standard CAD files certainly help, but we've also been known to successfully cut parts based on an accurate hand drawing.

Architectural Models
Architectural design firms appreciate the way laser's precision and detail bring their models to life. We're able to cut intricate patterns that mimic brickwork, wood shingling, window and door frames and even lattice work. Choose from materials like wood, acrylics, paper and steel. Our technology can help you create impressively realistic miniature buildings, large topographical displays and more.

Looking for high-quality signs or storefront displays? RMS can create 2D and 3D point-of-purchase displays, custom backdrops for window displays, light box signage, lettering and even wooden signs featuring hand-crafted antique designs. Let us help get your business noticed with custom designs cut from wood, acrylics, Rowmark™, foam, brushed metals and more.

Consumer Electronics
Electronics manufacturers large and small rely on RMS for precision OEM parts used in a variety of components. Turn to us for value-conscious solutions on custom backing plates, access panels, cover plates and internal components like spacers and gaskets. Call us for design, prototyping or any size production runs cutting Delrin, foam, plastic or just about anything else your engineering department dreams up.

Trophies, Awards & Promotional Items
Custom trophies and awards can be cut from nearly any of our standard materials. We also manufacture a wide range of custom promotional items including key chains, business card holders, names tags and bag tags of all shapes and sizes. Our flexible laser cutting systems allow surface engraving on materials up to a full 12" thick.

Wood Floors and Inlays
From simple elegance to the unbelievably elaborate and ornate, we create custom inlays both for individual architects and for use as promotional items. The design possibilities and types of wood are limited only by your imagination. Once you have a good laser cutting specialist on your team, you'll quickly realize that the sky is indeed the limit. If you could use some fresh inspiration, ask us to send you a couple of samples.

Fabric & Leather
We can handle virtually any fabric - anything from polyesters and natural fibers to heavy-duty leather. The laser typically seals the fabric edge cleanly as it cuts. This means no loose fibers, and absolutely no charring. No wonder we're so popular with clothing designers, vehicle restoration companies and companies who manufacture accessories like shoes, belts and leather bags.

We work with a number of model designers who sell from plans instead of maintaining expensive inventories. When an order is received, our client lets us know. Then, we simply place a sheet of material into our system. In a single streamlined process, parts are cut, then engraved with part numbers and assembly instructions. Within minutes, a complete set of components ready to ship (for the most cost-effective solution, we recommend running batches of ten or more at a time). This is efficiency at its best.

RMS manufactures parts for a variety of medical applications and well-known research laboratories. Our lasers are perfect for the medical field because of their clean, precise ability to cut plastics, metal parts and specialized materials that aren't easily easy to work with using any other process. We routinely cut Delrin, polyester fabric, mylar, stainless and spring steel for these demanding clients.


Our state-of-the-art lasers easily handle acrylics, plastics, mylars, wood, metal, foams, papers and even textiles like leather and fabric. As you might imagine, we've become very adept at locating the best materials for any given application, and at finding our clients the most competitive prices. If you already have your materials, or have an established relationship with a supplier, that's great. But time and time again, our wide network of sources allows us surpass clients' expectations both for quality and pricing.


Including RMS in the early design stages of your project typically offers a number of important benefits. We can offer meaningful assistance at any point in the process, but generally clients find it best to call us early on. Our specialized knowledge allows us to offer suggestions in process and materials choices that can expand the bounds of your creativity. This often helps our clients design significant economies into the manufacturing process from the very beginning. RMS can accept direction ranging from a sketch on a napkin to sophisticated digital files. Acceptable formats include CAD, Corel, DXF/DWG, CDR, Gerber files, EPS, Photoshop and PDF.

Hints and tips of the trade.

In the machining world, we sometimes have to improvise in order to complete a job. For this topic we'll look at some of the things that machinists do to accomplish a task at hand. Perhaps these tips can help you out when you find yourself in a bind.

Geometric Characteristic Symbols

What is GD&T?

GD&T stands for Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, as defined by ASME Y14.5M-1994.

GD&T: An International Language
Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing is an international language used on drawings to accurately describe a part. The language consists of a well-defined set of symbols, rules, definitions, and conventions that can be used to describe the size, form, orientation, and location tolerances of part features.

GD&T: An Exact Language
Geometric tolerancing is an exact language that enables designers to “say what they mean” on a drawing, thus improving product designs. Production uses the language to interpret the design intent, and inspection looks to the language to determine set up.

GD&T Provides Uniformity
By providing uniformity in drawing specifications and interpretation, GD&T reduces controversy, guesswork, and assumptions throughout the manufacturing and inspection process.
