Laser Cutting For Shop Fitting Applications

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.

Made In Sheffield Awards Trophy 2011

Former Sheffield Hallam students design exclusive Made in Sheffield trophies

The winners of this month’s Made in Sheffield Awards will receive a trophy designed and produced by three former Sheffield Hallam University students.

The prestigious awards, which will reward companies that uphold the region’s tradition of manufacturing excellence, will be held at the Cutler’s Hall on 24 March.

The trophy is the brainchild of industrial design graduate Tom Fripp, who now runs Fripp Design and Research, based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Sheffield. He was supported by fellow graduates Neil Frewer and Lewis Green.

They were mentored by one of the country’s most acclaimed designers, senior lecturer Chris Knight.

Fripp said: “We were determined to make the design of this trophy a Sheffield creation from start to finish. The technical knowhow, together with the facilities and resources we used, were pure Sheffield.

“We wanted to make sure steel, which is so associated with the city, formed the centerpiece of the design.

“To make sure the production process was innovative the design utilised tubular laser cutting, a relatively new technique and to help we enlisted the only tubular laser cutting company in the region who are based in Sheffield.”

The trophy, which incorporates the Made in Sheffield logo, was commissioned by Charles Turner, chairman of the Made in Sheffield mark.

The awards are sponsored by Barber Harrison & Platt, Barclays Corporate, Creativesheffield, DLA Piper, Sheffield Hallam University and The P&A Partnership.
