What metals can be laser cut?

With the combination of our four advanced fibre lasers with our two traditional CO2 gas assisted lasers, we can cut many metal sheets and plates in a wide variety of grades. All materials can be handled in plate sizes up to 4m x 2m. Specific cutting details and thicknesses of each material can be seen here.

  • Stainless Steel
  • Carbon / Mild Steels
  • Titanium
  • Copper, Brass and Bronze
  • Aluminum and Alloys

Laser Tolerances

Lasers are an extremely precise and accurate profiling method, which is one of the reasons it is so popular.

Our lasers work to a thickness tolerance in accordance with BS EN 10051:2010 and a flatness tolerance in accordance with BS EN 10029:1991.

Depending on thickness and length, the profiling tolerance of laser cutting is +/-0.12mm to +/-0.75mm.

More detailed information on laser profiling tolerances can be found here.

CO2 Laser Cutting Metal

4m x 2m max sheet size up to 25mm thick

Arguably the most popular form of laser profiling, this conventional gas-assisted method ensures a clean, blemish and burr-free cut. Key features of our CO2 laser cutting service include:

  • 6 Lasers cutting 24 hours a day for short lead times.
  • Sheet/plate size up to 4m by 2m.
  • Metal and steel cut up to 30mm thick.
  • Fast and cost efficient.

Fibre Laser Cutting Metal

4m x 2m max sheet size up to 30mm thick

An advanced alternative to CO2 laser profiling, fibre lasers excel at profiling thin sheets and reflective materials (such as aluminium, copper, brass etc). Key features of our fibre laser service includes:

  • Metal up to 10mm is cut faster than CO2 while maintaining exceptional precision and parts output.
  • Minimal distortion due to low heat.
  • 4 lasers cutting 24 hours a day.
  • Sheet size up to 4m by 2m.
  • Massive cost savings for large quantities of laser cut parts.

    For simple profiles such as squares, rectangles and cirlces with simple holes or slots we can work without a drawing.Alternatively, we also have an in-house CAD drawing team who can draw up your profile for you.As well as this, we also have a Laser QC scanner which enables us to scan and convert a physical object to a readable CAD file.
