Laser cutting is a precise form of metal fabrication that uses a concentrated laser energy beam to cut in a specified design. Metal Press and Bend can help you with your laser cutting needs to ensure an accurate finish on each product.
Laser cutting can be used for intricate designs but is better for one-off products or short runs. If you require large amounts of cut sheet metal, particularly in simple designs such as perforations, then turret punching is a better and more cost-effective option.
Why choose laser cutting?
Flexibility - laser cutting gives you the ability to cut intricate and custom designs, which could not be achieved with other methods
Precision - laser cutting uses a concentrated beam to cut the metal controlled by computer allowing precise control and measurements.
Fast turnaround - using laser cutting is a fast process which allows one-off products and short runs to be completed quickly and efficiently
Quality - a clean and precise finish.
What can you use laser cutting for?
Laser cutting has many applications, particularly for designs that are complex. Applications include:
- Art installations
- Custom shapes
- Decorative grilles
Metal Press and Bend has the capability to cut metal sheet sizes of up to 3048mm by 1524mm. Maximum thicknesses depends on the metal type - mild or carbon steel can be cut up to 10mm thick, stainless steel 6mm and aluminium 3mm.
