With such a diverse range of profiling methods we'll be sure to have a profiling service to suit your requirement.
As we have 4 different flatbed cutting methods together under one roof, we have the ability to profile an exhaustive range of metal and non-metallic materials. Our combined processes mean we can cut material from 0.1mm thin to 270mm thick.
We keep a large material range in stock and anything we don’t, we can usually source within 24 – 48 hours. Equally, we’re happy to profile cut your free issue material if preferable.
Even if it doesn’t appear on the list below, typically, if we can source it, we can cut it.

Laser cutting has the ability to effortlessly cut through a range of materials with a precision that is lacking in more traditional areas of profiling technology. Due to it's fast, effective cutting, incredible accuracy and repeatability, Laser profiling is quickly becoming one of our more popular cutting services.
We're able to cut all stainless steel grades from 0.25mm-25mm in thickness on sheets up to 4m x 2m.
We can cut carbon steels, in a range of grades, in sizes up to 4m x 2m and between 0.25mm-20mm in thickness.
Up to 5mm thick aluminium can be cut on our fibre laser and up to 10mm on CO2 lasers.
Traditionally difficult to laser cut, our fibre laser can easily cut up to 5mm thick yellow metal in sizes to 4m x 2m.
Titanium and titanium alloys of all grades can be profiled using our lasers. We can process titanium sheets up to 4m x 2m.
We can laser cut floor plate up to 12mm thick overplain (excl. “tear drop” pattern”) in sizes up to 4m x 2m.
Our 6kW laser is able to cut up to 20mm thick, however edge quality can become an issue towards the upper end of our cutting range, where we suggest waterjet cutting.
As with wear plate, we can cut up to 20mm. However for better edge quality, waterjetting would be more suitable.
Abrasive waterjet cutting is one of the fastest growing profiling methods. Due in part to its capability to cut almost any material, soft or hard, while maintaining the ability to process highly complex profiles. With a 8.25m x 4m cutting bed, Charles Day possesses one of the largest waterjet cutting beds in the UK.
We can easily waterjet cut mild and carbon steel grades up to 230mm thick with a max cutting size of 8.25m x 4m.
In thicknesses over 5mm, our abrasive waterjet is more cost effective on aluminium up to 230mm.
Regardless of grade, we can easily waterjet Stainless Steel up to 230mm without heat or distortion.
Over 5mm and up to 230mm thick, yellow metals are best suited to our Waterjet cutting machine.
We're able to cut extremely tough carbon-fibre reinforced plastics, quickly and cleanly in sheets up to 8.25m x 4m.
All forms of titanium and titanium alloys up to 230mm can be processed with our 8.25m x 2m abrasive waterjet.
From thin sheets to thick panels, our abrasive waterjet has the ability to cut plain glass types, except toughened and laminated glass.
Our waterjet profling machine can handle floor plate, such as Durbar, in sheets up to 8.25m x 4m.
Used for flooring, counter-tops and decorative pieces, we can cut marble and granite products of all types, however a weight limit applies.
We're able to cut a range of stone, paving slabs and concrete in applications up to 230mm. As with marble, a weight limit is applicable.
We can easily waterjet most kinds of plastics, most popularly acrylic, in sheet sizes up to 8.25m x 4m and 230mm thick.
Despite it's ability to process hard materials, our waterjet can handle soft materials such as foam and rubber with ease.
Our waterjet profling machine can handle wear plate (400, 500 grades etc) up 230mm thickness and in sheets up to 8.25m x 4m.
We can easily waterjet cut steel boiler plate (or pressure vessel plates) up to 230mm thick.
Our multi-head flame profiling machines are the ideal choice for performing high-production runs. While applications are limited to carbon and low alloy steels, this profiling method remains the most economical and simple method of cutting materials.
We can flame cut a range of mild/carbon steel grades, including S275, S355 and 080A40 up to 270mm.
Our 22m x 5mm cutting area is able to handle large sections of this “tear drop” studded, non-slip patterned steel.
We're able to flame cut sheet up to a thickness of 80mm.
We can profile 690 high yield structural steel sheet up to 180mm thickness on sheets as large as 22m x 5m.
The benefit of high definition plasma cutting over flame is it's ability to cut stainless steel. With a cutting bed area of 12m x 5m plasma cutting is an idea choice for large sheets requiring a higher accuracy edge squareness than flame.
Our HD plasma machine can cut a full range of carbon and mild steels up to 30mm thick.
With a 12m x 5m cutting bed, our High-def plasma cutter can handle large sheets of stainless steel.
Our large plasma cutting bed enables us to easily profile large 12m x 5m sheets of aluminium.
We're able to profile “tear drop” style floor plate up to 12.5mm thick on our 12m x 5m thick cutting bed.
We can cut steel wear plate in thicknesses up to 40mm, however above 35mm we can only preform edge start cuts (i.e. no piercing cuts).
We're able to plasma cut high-yield steel up to 40mm thick, however for cuts above 35mm thickness only edge start cuts can be performed.
Steel boiler plate up to 40mm can be plasma cut. Above 35mm thickness, only edge start cuts can be preformed.
