Traditionally a difficult metal to laser cut, our 3kW and 6kW fibre lasers can easily profile aluminium and aluminium alloys up to 40mm thick. Our high quality sub-contract aluminium laser cutting services provides exceptional part output and precision.
Due to the reflective nature of aluminium, it is difficult to cut on traditional CO2 lasers. However, our recent investment in fibre laser technology, an advanced alternative to CO2 lasers, means this is no longer an issue. Profiling aluminium on our two Bysprint Fibre laser machines is not only quicker but also considerably cheaper.
What sets aluminium apart from other materials is it’s high corrosion resistance and high strength compared to its weight. For these reasons we have been cutting aluminium for a range of industries including aircraft design and build, boat building and construction industries, to name a few. Trailing behind iron, aluminium is now the world’s second most widely used metal.
We keep a number of aluminium sheets and thicknesses in stock, if we don’t have the specific material you require, we can usually source it within 24-48 hours. We’re also happy to cut your free issue material if required.
For aluminium plate from 0.1mm to 15mm thick, we recommend our fibre laser, for material thicker than this up to 230mm we suggest using our waterjet cutting service
We’ve been in the profiling business for over 35 years and today we’re considered one of the largest and most diverse specialist cutting companies in the UK. We continue to invest in the latest cutting and automation technology to provide our customers with the highest quality cut parts in the shortest possible lead time.Contact us with your requirements today and join over 5000 customers who choose us for their profiling needs.
If you have drawings to send, we’re happy to accept DXF, DWG or dimensioned PDF files. By sending the above file types, we can easily process your order with our quoting system which vastly improves the speed at which we can get you a price.
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.
