Laser Cutting Stainless Steel

Laser Profiled Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

Our 6 powerful CNC laser cutting machines are running 24 hours a day, capable to profile a wide range of stainless steel grades and alloys in thicknesses up to 25mm. We have a selection of Stainless Steel in stock and if not, we can easily source it for you.

One of the most popular and versatile metals on the market, stainless steel is more expensive than other forms of steel but it's strength, corrosion resistance and high quality finishes make it widely used within numerous industries throughout the world. We've cut stainless steel sheets for medical industries, design and architecture clients and we've even profiled male grooming products out of it!

Laser Cut Stainless Steel Profiles

We keep a wide range of stainless steel grades and thicknesses in stock, however If we don't have a material in stock, we can usually source it within 24 hours. We can also cut your free issue material. Test certificates can be supplied when requested.

Regardless of your requirement, our 6 flat bed laser cutting machines and automation system allows us to cut around the clock ensuring a short lead time from drawing to delivery. Contact us today for a no-obligation quote.

Maximum Material Thickness:

25mm

Minimum Material Thickness:

0.25mm

Complex Details:

Our CNC driven laser cutting machines are able to process even the most complex and intricate designs.

Cutting Tolerances:

View our laser cutting tolerances here.

Cutting Edge Quality:

Laser cutting stainless steel provides a smooth finish quality, although this is sometimes degraded slightly on thicker sheets.

As we shroud the laser in Nitrogen gases, it prevents oxidisation ensuring we achieve a clean, blemish free cut, ready for welding without any extra machining.

Stainless Steel Grades:

We're able to laser cut stainless steel in all grades, some of the more common grades we get asked to cut include:

  • SS304 / 1.4301 Austenitic
  • SS304L / 1.4307 Austenitic
  • SS316 / 1.4401 Austenitic
  • SS316L / 1.4404 Austenitic
  • 3CR12 / Nirosta 4003 / 1.4003 Ferritic

We also offer laser profiling of specialist stainless steels such as:

  • 316Ti
  • 321 / S32100
  • 430 / 1.4016 Ferritic
  • Duplex
  • Super Duplex
  • Zeron
  • Shim Steel

We are laser cutting more and more nickel based, stainless steel alloys, also know as “exotic metals” including:

  • Inconel Alloy 625
  • Incoloy Alloy 800/800H
  • Incoloy Alloy 825
  • Hastelloy Steel

If the stainless steel grade you require is not in this list, we should still be able to source and cut it. Please contact us with your exact grade requirements.

Finishes Available:

Stainless steel comes in a wide variety of polishes and finishes including:

  • Dull Polished (DP1) in (40, 80, 120, 180, 220, 240 and 320 grit variants)
  • Silicon Polish in (120, 180, 240 grit variants)
  • White Satin
  • Mirror Polish
  • Circle Polish

BS EN 1090-1 Compliance:

ce mark

We have achieved full BS EN 1090-1 conformity to enable us to provide CE Ready laser cut stainless steel for structures in execution class EXC 1 to EXC 3.

CE ready laser cutting can be provided on the following stainless steel grades:

  • SS304
  • SS316

More information on our CE ready laser cutting services can be found here.

Typical Applications:

Due to it's versatility, stainless steel can be used for a huge range of applications. Including, but not limited to:

  • Domestic (cutlery, sinks, razor and knife blades)
