Of course we were extremely excited to get involved with an industry that we don’t usually deal with.

Laser Cut 304 Stainless Steel

Laser Cut Stainless Steel Sculpture

Earlier this year, we were approached by Jewellery and Object student Rebecca Waterfall who required a number of laser cut stainless steel parts to form part of her final project.

Waterjet Cutting Plastics

One of the major benefits of waterjet cutting technology is its ability to profile a wide range of materials, it is not limited to operating on a ‘metal-only’ basis like our laser and flame cutting technologies.

This ability really comes into it’s own when considering plastics, with there being so many different types, such as nylon, polyethylene, acrylic and even carbon fibre reinforced plastics, being able to cut them all using a single process is a great advantage.
