What are the Benefits of Laser Cut Aluminium?

Laser cutting has revolutionised the fabrication industry, especially in processing aluminium. Key benefits include:

Precision and Accuracy

Laser cutting allows for incredibly precise and detailed designs, which is essential for applications where even minor deviations can impact performance or aesthetics. This high level of precision ensures that parts fit together perfectly, reducing the need for additional adjustments or rework.

Versatility

Laser cutting is capable of handling various thicknesses and sizes of aluminium, providing flexibility for a wide range of applications. Whether for intricate architectural designs or robust industrial components, laser cutting can meet diverse requirements, accommodating different project specifications with ease.

Clean and Burr-Free Cuts

Aluminium laser cutting produces smooth edges without imperfections, eliminating the need for additional finishing processes. This ensures a high-quality final product, saving time and resources in post-processing and improving the overall efficiency of the fabrication process.

Corrosion Resistance

Aluminium’s natural resistance to corrosion makes it ideal for outdoor and harsh environments. This property ensures longevity and reliability in applications exposed to weather elements or corrosive substances, reducing maintenance needs and extending the life of the product.

Strength and Durability

Despite being lightweight, aluminium maintains excellent structural integrity under stress and prolonged use. This makes it suitable for a variety of applications where weight and strength are critical factors.

Cost-Effectiveness

Aluminium’s durability and low maintenance requirements result in long-term cost savings. Its ability to withstand environmental stresses without significant wear reduces the frequency of replacements and repairs, providing a more economical solution over time.

Aluminium Cutting Grades and Capabilities

Aluminium Laser Cutting Capabilities

Maximum Cutting Size

6m x 2.5m (6000mm x 2500mm) – For larger sheet sizes we recommend waterjet or plasma cutting.

Maximum Material Thickness

40mm

Minimum Material Thickness

0.4mm (Technically we can cut thinner than this but given the malleability of aluminium at such low thickness it can be tricky.)

Complex Details

Our CNC-driven laser-cutting machines are able to process even the most complex and intricate designs.

Cutting Tolerances

Cutting Edge Quality

Laser cutting aluminium and aluminium alloys provide a smooth finish quality, although this is sometimes degraded slightly on thicker sheets. As we shroud the laser in Nitrogen gases, it prevents oxidisation ensuring we achieve a clean, blemish-free cut, ready for welding without any extra machining.

We’re able to laser cut aluminium plates and sheets in all grades as well as numerous aluminium alloys. Some of the more common grades we get asked to cut include:

Even if the grade you require is not listed, we could still source and cut it for you. Please contact us with your preferred grade and requirements.
