Sheet Metal Laser Cutting
Precision sheet metal laser cutting with rapid lead times from our high capacity, Sheffield-based production facility.
24-hour lights-out manufacturing across our comprehensive suite of laser cutting machines ensure even the largest projects receive a fast turnaround. Complemented by an in-house design team and end-to-end processing services, our sheet metal laser cutting is hard to beat.
The Laser Cutting Co. have two dedicated flatbed laser cutting machines handling sheet metal sizes up to 2000 x 4000mm and up to 50mm thick, depending on the material type. Our 6kw and 10kw solid-state fibre lasers deliver exceptional quality cutting finish, reducing pre-weld preparation. We have access to a further 6 cutting machines at our Sheffield-based sister site including the UK’s first 15kw laser source on a 6000mm x 2500mm cutting bed.
CNC laser cutting technology guarantees absolute accuracy. Intricate cutting and fine contouring are achievable across a range of metals, including thin and thick mild steel. Eliminate additional process steps with the ability to produce chamfers and countersinks, in a single pass. Tighter nesting delivers a highly cost-effective laser cutting sheet metal service.
Unrivalled Part Quality
We invest in the latest laser cutting technology, so you don’t have to. Our flatbed laser cutting machines deliver the highest part quality. Laser cut parts are easy to remove, limiting damage to parts and speeding up downstream processes.
An impressive range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be cut without reflections, including film-coated sheet metal. Active cooling ensures complex geometries and tighter nesting are possible, even in mild steel, with fast processing times.
Unrivalled quality ensures our laser cutting processes are highly efficient. This means we consistently offer a highly competitive sheet metal laser cutting prices for our customers. Significantly reduced waste results in lower material costs for our customers.

Sheet Metal Laser Cutting FAQ's
Sheet metal laser cutting is a precise and efficient industrial process that uses a high-powered laser beam to cut intricate shapes, designs, or patterns from flat sheets of metal. The laser beam melts, burns, or vaporizes the material, creating accurate cuts with minimal heat-affected zones.
Laser cutting is an extremely versatile method of processing a wide range of sheet metals, some of which include:
- Stainless steel
- Mild/carbon steel
The suitability of metal for laser cutting depends on factors like thickness, reflectivity, and thermal conductivity. For more information, contact The Laser Cutting Co. today.
Laser cutting machines direct a focused laser beam onto the metal surface. The intense heat from the laser melts or vaporizes the material along the designated cutting path. Simultaneously, a gas jet blows away the molten metal, resulting in a precise cut. Computer numerical control (CNC) programming guides the laser’s movement to create intricate shapes.
Sheet metal laser cutting offers high precision, intricate detailing, minimal material wastage, reduced tool wear, fast production times, and the ability to cut complex shapes without the need for specialised tooling.
Sheet metal laser cutting is utilised across an expansive range of industries, including automotive manufacturing, electronics, architecture, signage, medical device production, consumer goods manufacturing, and much more.
The cost of sheet metal laser cutting depends on various factors including material type, thickness, complexity of the design, production volume, and machine time.
