Why Choose Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting does not cause distortion through heat, it leaves a clean edge and is able to include holes and cut outs of (almost) any shape and size. Laser cutting provides customers with a consistent product that can, in most cases, be integrated immediately into their product. One of the more important advantages of laser cutting is that of time (and therefore cost) saving. The need for hard tooling is eliminated and this can save many thousands of dollars and several weeks delay. Modifications can be made instantly.

Advantages of laser cutting:

  • No tooling cost
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Greater accuracy
  • Quick turn around

Our sheet metal laser cutting machinery provides a range of benefits to our

  • In comparison to punching, laser cutting gives a superior edge finish that requires no de-burring or finishing.
  • Intricate detail & marking are all possible.
  • Lasers can cut complex shapes without the need for tooling.
  • Speed is comparable or faster than other profile cutting methods.
  • Localised heat distortion is reduced.
  • A polished edge finish can be achieved on stainless steel using a nitrogen assist gas.

The reasons for laser cutting sheet metal popularity include:

  • The accuracy of the cut part achievable
  • The repeatability and consistency of the process
  • The level of detail achievable
  • The range of materials which can be processed
  • The speed of the process
  • The cost of parts
  • The ease of changing parts (particularly when compared to hard tooling etc)
  • The lack of physical contact during the process
  • The small heat affected zone
