Top Tips for Precise Laser Cutting & Punching
Choose the right equipment
Select the best machine for the job to optimize the process. We carefully plan how to tackle every step so we can stay efficient throughout.
Utilise available tools
Understanding the components you need means you can use the correct tool for the process. Knockouts, louvres, countersinks or tapping, each form requires a specific tool.
Use experience within the team
Complex parts can be produced using different lasers, punches or even combination of the both. With our experience, we are able to offer this insight to deliver the perfect outcome.
Check the quality
Ensure first-off checks are carried out ahead of any cutting, making sure the parts are correct with approved drawings.
Take safety seriously
Health and safety are the key factors for all industrial processes. Always have the appropriate PPE available throughout.
