Established by Charles Day in 1977 providing a flame cutting service, Charles Day Steels Ltd has since grown into one of the largest and most diverse family run profile cutting companies in the UK with the next generation now joining the ranks.
Here at Charles Day (Steels) Ltd. we supply to any and every industry. Not only do we supply to fabricators and various manufacturers across the UK, we supply to artists and the like too.
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.
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.
We’re proud to announce that we have invested in two brand new, high powered CNC laser cutting machines from Bystronic UK, a clear sign of our ongoing commitment to remain at the forefront of the laser profiling industry.
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.
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.
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.
Charles Day Limited of Sheffield, a long established specialist profiling and cutting operation with multi-installation laser and flame cutting facilities, has recently placed an order with WJS (Water Jet Sweden) for a multi head water jet cutting machine with a cutting bed of 8m x 4m.The new machine will offer the UK’s largest subcontract water jet cutting bed with multi head cutting.
