Laser Cutting Cost & Quality Benefits

Laser Cutting Cost & Quality Benefits

Laser cutting components from metal plate as opposed to guillotining or machining has several cost benefits:-

Laser cut components are produced at a much faster rate.

Raw material costs are lower, especially so when employing a nesting programme as we do.

The quality of a laser cut as opposed to the cut of a guillotine is far superior, providing a clean shiny edge rather than the sharp rugged edge from a guillotine blade.

Laser cut components can be cut to a far tighter tolerance, raising the specification of the end product and providing the most accurate dimensions possible.

Please see Laser Cutting for more details.

Water Jet Cutting – Benefits

Water jet cutting is pre-eminent for the precision cutting of reflective metals such as stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, copper and brass. High quality water jet cutting is so finely controlled that in many circumstances it can be quicker and more efficient than laser cutting. Please see Water Jet Cutting page for details.
