Approval to certify to EN1090-1 up to EXC 4

We are delighted to have gained approval this week to certify to EN1090-1 Execution class 4, which means we can now cut and profile steel and aluminium components conforming to nuclear standard.

Since 1st July 2014, the CE Marking of fabricated structural steel and related metal work destined for use within the construction industry became mandatory and a new EU harmonised standard was bought into effect (BS EN 1090-1/A1:2001).

With many of our customers working within the construction industry, we understood the requirement for us to be able to provide CE ready profiles that conform to the BS EN 1090-1 standard. To this end, we underwent extensive auditing and implemented a new Factory Production Control system in order to comply with the new rules set out by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).

Our conformity to the CPR now allows us to provide thermal cutting / profiling of steel and aluminium components for steel structures in execution class EXC 1 up to EXC 4.

All hands to the pump as we move to 24 hour waterjet cutting

Due to increasing customer demand, we are now offering around the clock waterjet cutting.

Previously running on two shifts, the changes will see our large waterjet machines move to 24 hour cutting. The move represents our on-going commitment to providing competitive profiles, short lead times and reliable on-time deliveries.

Leading profiling and laser cutting firm makes £1.5m investment

Profiling and cutting specialists Charles Day (Steels) Ltd have invested £1.5 million in three high powered machines from Bystronic UK.

The Sheffield based firm have added a Bycell Cross, 3kw BySprint Fiber 3015 and 6kw BySpeed Pro with full sheet and plate automation to their existing capacity of four flat bed laser machines, making Charles Day (Steels) Ltd one of the largest and diverse specialist profile cutting companies in the UK.

Charles Day reaping rewards from fibre laser

Back in November 2012 Charles Day invested £1.5 million in a 6kw BySpeed Pro, a 3kw BySprint Fiber and a ByCell Cross auto handling system including sheet storage towers to feed both machines. As with any large scale investment there were initial teething problems, but the installation of the fibre laser has been an outstanding success. Through extensive testing and customer experience Charles Day (Steels) has found the fibre laser excels when cutting material 5mm and thinner. The results are it is cheaper, faster and the quality is indistinguishable from CO2 lasers when cutting thin material.

ISO9001 Laser Cutting

Here at Charles Day we have always been focused on quality. We understand the importance of providing our customers with laser cut parts and laser cutting services of the highest possible quality.

Many of our customers work to incredibly tight time schedules and cannot afford to recieve poor quality parts or recieve a service that is below what they are expecting.
