Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a relatively new and very precise method of cutting a design from a given material. The laser beam follows a computer generated file to guide it precisely in any direction . The laser beam cuts by melting, burning or vaporizing the material. You can achieve a really fine level of cutting detail on a wide variety of material, such as Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Steel, Plastics, Acrylic, Plexiglass etc to name but a few.

Laser engraving or laser etching is a method of marking by moving the laser beam slowly down the material. It is also know as ‘raster engraving’. Think of it like a printer where instead of printing, it is actually taking some of your material away to mark the surface.

The machine will follow the path of the drawing strokes to cut out the components.

Depending on the material, we usually use a protective backing during the laser cutting process that can be peeled away after the cutting is complete. This protects the surface from heat and burn marks.

The cutters used in our workshops are able to move along numerous axes, allowing us to create an assortment of shapes, slots and holes. Because of this innovation, it’s possible to produce large volumes of high precision components, quickly and accurately.
