Mild Steel Cutting - The Laser Cutting Company

Professional Mild Steel Cutting Services

Praised for its affordability, durability and strength, mild steel is utilised across a wide range of industries and sectors globally. Utilising our state-of-the-art laser cutting facilities, we process a diverse range of carbon and mild steels, accommodating thicknesses up to 50mm and sheet sizes reaching 6m x 2.5m. Operational 24/7, our laser cutting machines effortlessly fulfil even the most complex of projects.

Since the installation of our first sub-contract laser cutting machine in 1999, many of our clientele have favoured laser cutting for mild steel due to its superior cut edge quality, rapid lead times, and cost-effectiveness over alternative profiling techniques. 

We maintain a stock of popular thicknesses and sheet/plate sizes, with the capability to source materials within 48 hours if not readily available. Additionally, we accommodate laser cutting of your supplied steel materials, with provision for test certificates upon request.

Utilising a fleet of 6 flatbed laser cutting machines and integrated automation systems, our Smart Design Production facilities orchestrate a seamless workflow. This ensures expedited delivery from blueprint to fruition, optimising efficiency and precision.

What are the Benefits of Laser Cut Mild Steel?

Laser cutting has revolutionised the fabrication industry, especially in its application to mild steel. Here are some benefits of employing laser cutting for stainless steel materials:


Mild steel is one of the most affordable materials for laser cutting. Its widespread availability and relatively low cost make it an economical choice for various applications.

Ease of cutting

Mild steel is known for its excellent machinability, making it relatively easy to cut with lasers. This means faster processing times and lower energy consumption compared to cutting harder materials.

High precision

Laser cutting offers exceptional precision, and mild steel is no exception. It allows for intricate designs and tight tolerances, making it suitable for industries where accuracy is crucial, such as automotive, aerospace, and electronics.


Mild steel is a versatile material that can be used in a wide range of applications, from structural components to decorative pieces. Laser cutting allows for the creation of complex shapes and designs, expanding the possibilities for product development.

Minimal distortion

Compared to traditional cutting methods like plasma or waterjet cutting, laser cutting generates minimal heat-affected zones and distortion in mild steel. This ensures that the structural integrity of the material is maintained, particularly important for applications where dimensional accuracy is critical.

Smooth edges

Laser cutting produces clean, smooth edges on mild steel without the need for additional finishing processes. This saves time and resources, reducing overall production costs.
