Stainless Steel Cutting Services: Precision Profiling and Fast Turnaround

One of the most popular and versatile metals on the market, stainless steel’s corrosion resistance and high-quality finishes make it widely used within numerous industries throughout the world. We possess extensive experience in cutting stainless steel sheets for a range of clients in the medical, design, architecture and male grooming sectors.

Our suite of powerful CNC laser cutting machines operates around the clock, capable of profiling a wide range of stainless steel grades and alloys with thicknesses of up to 50 mm. We maintain a diverse inventory of stainless steel grades and thicknesses in stock, and if unavailable, we can readily source them for you.

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, and test certificates can be supplied when requested.

We offer services to cut your free-issue material, and we supply test certificates upon request. Our 6 flatbed laser cutting machines and automation systems enable us to work seamlessly and ensure prompt delivery from drawing to delivery.

Laser Cutting Edge Quality - Factors Affecting Laser Edge Finish - Charles Day Steels

Benefits of Laser Cut Stainless Steel by Charles Day Steels

Stainless steel stands out for its exceptional strength, corrosion resistance, and premium finishes, making it a top choice across various industries worldwide. Whether it’s for medical equipment, architectural designs, or consumer products, stainless steel delivers unparalleled quality and durability. Some benefits of laser cut stainless steel include:

High Precision

Stainless steel can be cut with high precision, allowing for intricate and detailed designs with very fine cuts.

Versatility

Stainless steel is suitable for a wide range of applications due to its versatility. It can be cut into various shapes and sizes, making it ideal for diverse industries.

Corrosion Resistance

Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion makes it suitable for outdoor applications and environments where exposure to moisture or chemicals is common.

Strength and Durability

Stainless steel is a strong and durable material, which means that laser-cut stainless steel parts can withstand high levels of stress and wear over time without losing their structural integrity.

Clean Cuts

Stainless steel can be cut with high precision, allowing for intricate and detailed designs with very fine cuts.

Cost-Effectiveness

While stainless steel may initially have higher material costs compared to other metals, its durability and low maintenance requirements can make it cost-effective in the long run.

Recyclability

Stainless steel is a recyclable material, which means that scraps generated during the laser cutting process can be recycled and reused, reducing waste and environmental impact.

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.
