METALS

Two dedicated metal cutting machines are at your service

Metals love to be laser cut. The higher carbon content or the harder they are, the better they cut. All steels cut cleanly and without burrs and all stainless is cut with high pressure nitrogen to produce the ultimate “clean” cut. Aluminium thicker than 5mm can have occasional burrs, but we have a cleaning service if required. Small details in thick metals can be a challenge, so if in doubt get in touch.
