Why Laser Cutting? Laser cutting tube and sheet is cheaper, faster and more repeatable than other cutting methods, it is also suitable for both one off and large production runs. Laser cutting removes the need for multiple operations. Traditional cutting methods such as slotting, punching, mitre cutting and drilling can be combined to a single process. Instantly reducing your manufacturing costs and lead time.
It’s not just holiday season for most of us, but a few of our laser cut profiles also find themselves ‘sunning it up’ in Europe.
We we’re recently commissioned by Café Bar Artesão in Portugal to laser cut a shop front sign as well as a number of smaller laser cut menu holders.
The sign, with the addition of back lighting, now adorns the front of the café and creates a sleek, contemporary and recognisable focal point for patrons and passers-by.
We’ve always been at the forefront of 3D laser cutting technology, continually investing in the latest 3-dimensional cutting machines means we have the capacity and versatility to cut more than just lengths but also complex shapes and holes. However, increasingly important for our clients, is our ability to cut the ends of the section for weld preparation with bevels and chamfers in angles up to 60 degrees.
As one of Sheffield’s leading laser and tube cutting companies, we have been invited again to produce the Made In Sheffield awards trophy in partnership with Durham-Duplex, Sheffield Assay Office and the Sheffield Metal Polishing Company Ltd.
More than just a brand, the Made in Sheffield mark is an internationally renowned symbol of quality and heritage of the city’s manufactured products.
Held in the magnificent Cutlers’ hall, next month’s annual black-tie event celebrates the very best in design, manufacturing and innovation that the city of Sheffield has to offer.
The Laser Cutting Company is pleased to announce that after extensive auditing they have achieved BS EN 1090-1 certification allowing them to provide CE compliant laser profiles.
By implementing a new quality control system and after assessment from notified body TÜV, they have been awarded a Factory Production Control (FPR) Certificate for the laser cutting of CE Marked materials.
The superior cutting speed and flexibility of our round and sqaure tube and 5 axis laser cutting machines provides the perfect sub-contract laser cutting service for a wide range of shop fitting applications. Our tube cutting machines provide a quick and precise cut which matches your exact specifications.
Traditionally, the manufacturing of shop fittings would require a number of different processes from different sub-contractors, however we’re able to combine these formerly singular processes under one roof. This combination, coupled with the high quality finish of laser cutting allows us to be more competitive when compared to traditional methods of punching, drilling, slotting and mitre cutting. Enabling us to pass both cost and time saving benefits on to you.
Taking advantage of our various BLM laser tube cutters and our Mazak 3-dimensional 5-axis laser cutter, we’re able to offer customers the facility to avoid or minimise separate processes such as sawing, milling, drilling and plasma cutting etc. which necessitates considerable movement and handling of material. Traditionally items can be handled 6 or 7 times, involving set-up at each operation. These labour intensive actions can now be achieved in one process.
Sheffield-based The Laser Cutting Co. has invested almost £1 million in the latest Adige Lasertube processing system from BLM Group. The investment will provide customers with greater production security and also cost-effective manufacture of complex tube components.
