Sheet Laser Cutting

We cut sheet metal parts and billets from specifications and drawings provided by the customer on our sheet laser cutting benches.

Materials we cut: mild steel, galvanized or hot-dip galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper.

Allowable material thicknesses: 0.5 up to 25 mm.

Laser cutting allows the cutting of parts very quickly and accurately. The accuracy tolerance for positioning is +/- 0.05 mm. Our fiber laser has outstanding cutting speed and is equipped with an automatic material loading and unloading system. This gives it productivity levels comparable to sheet metal punching/nibbling. When cutting with a laser, the thermal effect to the material is small and it is therefore possible to cut small holes (minimum diameter =~1/2 material thickness), as well as holes that can be threaded after cutting with no additional machining required. The width of the cut line is minimal – it is smaller than 0.5 mm for most materials.

Pipe Material Laser Cutting

Pipe material laser cutting benches enable the cutting of materials of different tubular profiles, from either steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Tubes can be round, square, oval or rectangular cross-section. Tubular profile does not play a major role here as long as the tube’s diameter or diagonal measurement is within the cutting bench parameters. The tube’s exterior diameter or diagonal should be between 15 mm and 250 mm for our cutting benches.

The advantages of laser tube cutting compared to mechanical processes, such as sawing, drilling or milling, is a greater productivity and production flexibility. Details which would have demanded various separate work operations and a high number of working hours when produced with traditional methods and equipment, are cut with a laser in just one, quick operation. Details are always to a high precision and all pieces of a batch are identical.

Water Jet Cutting

We cut details and billets from many different sheet materials on the water cutting bench. It is basically possible to cut any sheet material that has water resistance and that will not break under a focused flow pressure. For water cutting, we use water or a mix of water and abrasive for the cutting. Water at a pressure of 5300 bar is directed through a narrow nozzle. In this way we get a “cutting instrument” which cuts through most softer materials such as rubber, polyurethane foam and plastic. In order to cut stronger materials, such as stainless steel or aluminum, we add abrasive to the water flow.

The advantage of water cutting, compared to other thermal cutting technologies, is that the cutting process happens at room temperature, and therefore there is no thermal effect on the material. This makes water cutting an essential cutting method for cutting flammable or fusible materials. Our water cutting bench also allows us to cut materials with a greater thickness than is possible on our laser cutting benches.

Gas Cutting

We cut details and billets from carbon steel from thicknesses of 10 mm to 100 mm on the gas cutting bench.

The primary advantage of gas cutting, compared to other thermal cutting technologies, is the low cost of production. Similarly to plasma cutting, gas cutting technology is not suitable for cutting small details.

Plasma Cutting

Plasma cutting is one of the most common technologies for metal cutting. The primary advantage of this technology is the high cutting speed, especially when cutting parts without small holes. Since our plasma cutting bench has a bevel cutting head, we are able to cut details with one or two-sided welding chamfers. The cutting head is programmable in 3 dimensions so cutting welding chamfers can be done simultaneously while cutting the part. Therefore, it does not matter whether the chamfers are on a straight line or on a curve, on an exterior or on an interior contour. We usually use plasma to cut large scale parts from mild and stainless steel, with thicknesses from 3 to 40 mm. Our plasma cutting bench also allows for the marking of parts.
