Laser cutting is a technology that uses laser to cut through materials.
It is typically used in industrial manufacturing, for some components, that may be unsuitable for photo etching, we are able to offer parts manufactured using CNC laser cutting techniques. The precision may be better than some traditional methods, as the laser beam does not wear during the manufacturing process.
Components are processed using the latest sigma programming tools and drawings can be programmed from DXF or DWG electronic formats, with the parts per sheet yield maximised using the latest nesting software.
Sheets processed can be up to 3000mm x 1500mm in thicknesses as below:
Mild Steel: Up to 20mm
Stainless Steel: (all grades and finishes) up to 12mm
Aluminium : Up to 8mm
Laser cutting can produce parts with comparable tolerances to photo etching and is another quick, low cost method of manufacture to produce cut profiles, not only in metals, but also wood, paper and other materials.
Our assembly line approach reduces manufacturing time and allows us to save time by cutting unnecessary steps out of the manufacturing process.
We have a dedicated team of fully qualified professionals who are on hand to deal with and complete assembly work requests from our customers.
We offer assembly, soldering and spot welding, bespoke packaging, and also many other specialist bespoke customer requirements that our clients may have.
This is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials.
