Laser Cutting Metal for Precise Metal Shapes
Precision sheet metal manufacturing requires a high level of detail and care and when cutting sheet metal such as mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium in high volumes, there are effectively two options: sheet metal punching and metal laser cutting using a fibre laser.
Whilst punching can be a more cost-effective and inexpensive option when cutting more commonly-shaped products, sheet metal laser cutting offers a precise and often highly specific metal shape.
Our Trumpf fibre laser cutter and Amada metal cutters can handle a variety of sheet metal cutting tasks including aluminium laser cutting and laser cutting stainless steel, ensuring that we meet the exact specifications of a product shape set out by our client. Our extremely precise industrial metal laser cutters cut raw metal into intricate and often varied shapes, working with a range of thicknesses from paper-thin metal through to 20mm thick steel.
The good news is that minimum set up is involved when laser cutting metal, which makes producing laser cut stainless steel or aluminium metal products, parts or components a quick process. This sheet metal cutting process usually takes place before moving onto the metal forming and fabrication stages, saving on overall manufacturing time and cost.
Typical examples of products created using our metal laser cutters and processes include the manufacture of point of sale units and retail fixtures, HVAC systems, self service kiosks, electrical enclosures and machine guarding, along with light parts and lighting systems.
Having working in the metal manufacturing and sheet metal laser cutting industry for over 30 years there isn’t much that we haven’t seen or done so do get in touch to discuss your sheet metal cutting requirements.
With over 30 years’ experience, we provide unparalleled levels of quality, durability and expertise in the production of metal base plates, industrial fan plates and post base plates, from materials including steel, stainless steel aluminium, and zinc.
