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.
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.
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.
Jon Day, managing director of Charles Day Steels predicts that demand for innovative laser cut solutions to stainless, and other high value material, will continue to grow despite declining markets. The company continues to expand with a third machine installation planned for 2003.
