Laser Cutting the New Spire for One World Trade CenterSeptember 1, 2013
On May 10, 2013, when workers installed the spire for One World Trade Center in New York, Kammetal Architectural Metal Inc., Brooklyn, NY, secured its place in history. Of note: the architectural and ornamental metal fabricator used laser cutting (on a Trumpf TruLaser 1030 machine) to cut the spire’s stainless-steel structure. The machine boasts a 2500-W laser and 60- by 120-in. sheet-cutting capacity.
