What Is CNC Laser Cutting?

CNC laser cutting is a process using a high-power laser beam to melt, vaporise or evaporate material to create cutouts and shapes programmed in via computer. You can cut just about anything with a laser, from acrylic to paper! Here at Unicorn we deal primarily with metals, mainly steel, stainless steel and aluminium, but we keep stock of brass and copper too.

We’ve accumulated more than 15 years of knowledge in laser cutting and our skilled operators ensure you get a quality cut, whatever the material or thickness in question.

We’ve recently purchased a 6kw Trumpf fiber laser to accompany our 5kw c02 laser to double our capacity and slash run times. If you have a dxf to hand, you can even get an insant quote yourself! Follow this link for instant online quotation.

Our 5kw and 6kw lasers both have 3m x 1.5m beds and cut mild steels up to 25mm in thickness. Aluminium and stainless up to 12mm, copper and brass up to 10mm.

Aluminium & Stainless Laser Cutting

The most notable improvement when cutting with our new fiber laser is the quality achieved on stainless steel and aluminium.

Old c02 lasers are notorious for leaving burn marks on the surfaces of aluminium and stainless which are a pain to remove. This isn’t an issue with the fiber though, aluminium and stainless cut with almost no heat affection or surface burning right the way up to 10mm! Fantastic!

Given the improved quality standards cutting thick stainless and aluminium sheet, we thought we’d offer it out for instant online quotation too.



DXF and DWG Format Drawings

We use AutoCAD and Radan together to maximise material usage and guarantee as many units as possible will be cut from a single sheet. If you have drawings in DXF or DWG format our software can take your drawings and put them straight into production. DXF’s can even be used to attain an instant online quote!
