LASER PROFILING

Laser cutting uses laser technology to provide faster and more precise manufacturing than traditional methods. We can cut all sorts of parts with minimal set-up time. There’s no question about it with advantages like these:

  • Quick set-up time, great for prototyping
  • Fast turn-around regardless of complexity
  • High levels of accuracy/low tolerances
  • Clean edges on most materials
  • Reduced wastage
  • Cost effective

Our lasers are extremely precise working to thickness tolerances in accordance with BS EN 10051:2010 and a flatness tolerance in accordance with BS EN 10029:1991.

Mazak OPTIPLEX 4020 Fiber II 6KWH

The OPTIPLEX 4020 Fiber offers superior edge quality, more stable cut performance and greater throughput for applications utilising stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, aluminium, hastelloy, inconel, titanium, thin gage mild steel, and other exotic metals. There is no need for additional surface cleaning when painting mild steel cut with nitrogen.

METALS

OTHER

The cutting process is very complex, but basically involves pre-piercing the material outside the area of desired cut, moving the laser beam into the cutting area to apply heat, and finally use an assist gas to remove the heated material and produce the cut. The type of assist gas employed is critical, and is dependent on the material to be laser cut; most commonly used are Oxygen (used predominantly for carbon steels), Nitrogen (used for non-ferrous steels & non-metals) and Argon (used for more exotic materials such as titanium).

METAL CUTTING CAPACITIES:
