High Precision Sheet Metal Laser Cutting & WaterjettingLaser Cutting Applications

We have two Trumpf laser cutting machines. Our Trumpf 3030 high capacity laser cutter is rated at 3kw, enabling us to process plate from 0.5mm to 20mm thick. The bed capacity is 3m x 1500mm.

In 2011 we bought larger premises and invested in an additional, larger machine. The Trumpf 3050 laser cutter was bought to meet the growing demand of our client base for us to process thicker metal plate.

For even greater efficiency in the use of metal sheet, we have invested in a nesting programme. This automatically configures all of the components within a sheet, maximising the units per sheet.

DXF Files

Our laser cutters also accept DXF files, enabling us to deal with electronically transferred drawings. You can send drawings to us via the fax, e-mail or a CD of your dxf files. Please see contact page.
