Laser Cutting Technology
Laser cutting is a modern industrial process implemented via a CNC controlled system in which a high-powered laser is used to rapidly cut profiles in sheet metals, resulting in a clean finish.
Laser cutting is a highly efficient process that offers unrivalled levels of uniformity, meaning customers can be confident in both the regularity and quality of their finished product.
We use two automated, industry-leading Bystronic fibre lasers to implement our laser cutting services. The lasers are capable of cutting stainless steel up to 12mm in thickness, aluminium up to 6mm and mild steel up to 15mm, with a maximum sheet size of 3000mm x 1500mm.
There is very little heat distortion of the sheet parts. Set-up times are low and productivity high when laser cutting both thick and thin sheets, resulting in cut edges with high-quality finishes.
Demand for laser cutting continues to grow. It offers a significant increase in productivity and efficiency by eliminating the need for finishing, drilling, milling, punching and similar costly operations.
Laser cutting is not only faster, more accurate and neater than other metal cutting methods, but it is so precise that it does not create burrs or surface metal damage, eradicating the need invest more money in additional metal finishing process.
We use 2 Bystronic fibre lasers a 4kw and a 6kw, which are capable of cutting stainless steel up to 12mm in thickness, aluminium up to 6mm and mild steel up to 15mm. Our maximum sheet size is 3000mm x 1500mm.

It is a highly precise process with little heat distortion of the sheet parts. Set-up times are low and productivity high when cutting both thick and thin sheets. The resulting cut edges have a high-quality ﬁnish.
Demand for laser cutting continues to grow. It oﬀers a signiﬁcant increase in productivity and eﬃciency by eliminating the need for ﬁnishing, drilling, milling, punching and similar costly operations.
We use the industry-leading laser models. The Bystronic 4kw and 6kw Byspeed laser with a Bytrans Cross automated load unload cell. The machine has a maximum 3000mm x 1500mm sheet size.
Thicker metals take longer to cut, and so have higher costs attached. Below the graph shows the typical relationship between thickness and speed.
