Find out more about our laser cutting service materials through the B-Made Hub page. High Speed Lasers are your reliable off-site laser cutting and folding partner. Laser engraving is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the material sheet, it engraves the material surface. Mostly used for cutting carbon steel in thicknesses over 1 mm. This process can be used to cut very thick steel plates with relatively little laser power. Once strictly used by industrial manufacturers, laser cutting is increasingly adopted by small businesses, product designers, makers, and even hobbyists. Our team offer a high quality service with a fast turnaround, and our experience as designers means we understand exactly what you need and how to achieve it. AmTech’s laser cutting service is a type of metal fabricating process where a high-intensity laser beam is used to cut metal such as stainless steel into custom shapes.
High-quality engraving and cutting of acrylic, wood, paper, leather and more. A high speed will cut faster, but may not cut all the way through if you have thicker or stronger materials. Use your favorite software to create a design that you would like to have laser cut. The kerf of a given laser cutter determines the maximum thickness of material that it can cut, because on thicker materials the beam will either get too unfocused to cut well, or it will have an angled kerf, which may be unsatisfactory for the designer. We specialise in paper and card laser cutting. The laser turns on and off rapidly when it makes cuts, so a higher frequency will create a cleaner cut, but if the material is flammable it may end up catching fire, so a lower frequency would be preferable. Once you send your file to a laser cutter, only lines that register as only hairline or vector graphics with the smallest possible line thickness will be cut by the laser. This subtractive manufacturing technology uses a powerful laser beam source to melt, burn, or vaporize material away.
By property matching your parts to our lasers, we can offer the most economical way to produce your metal blanks. Our vertically integrated facility allows us to perform all work in-house, from sourcing the right material, to performing the cutting itself, to any final assembly and quality control you require. Its high level of accuracy and detail, repeatability and consistency mean laser cutting tech is hugely popular. Log into the B-made ‘Workshop Users’ Moodle to book a laser cutter at either our 22 Gordon Street or Here East site. Our emergency service is designed to offer the fastest turn around of your project at the highest quality. Continuous investment in the latest equipment, a 24 hour laser cutting service, competitive pricing and excellent customer care ensure that customers get the best With our expertise, we can help you with everything from one off items to full scale production and large batches. CNC laser cutting is a great option if you need to produce a large number of complex pieces. Fibre optic laser cutting also allows our company to perform complex machining and linear and circular cuts. Laser cutting and engraving are incredibly cost and time-efficient manufacturing methods that cut and engrave any shapes in most metals and non-metallic materials. By the ‘70s, manufacturers around the world were using laser cutting systems for all sorts of applications, from titanium cutting for aerospace to textile cutting. At Gratnells Engineering we believe that quality and customer service are every bit as important as price and lead time. The laser, when supplied with the right settings, will cut all the way through your material, so vector cutting is normally used for cutting out the outline of the part as well as any features or holes that you want to cut out of the material. We are your ideal supplier for small, thin, delicate and high-precision parts laser cut from a variety of metals and plastics, in flat or tube form. Getting everything together in drawings for laser cutting and engraving is the key first stage.
Aluminum alloys, carbon steel, galvanized steel, copper, brass and stainless steel materials worked. Using state-of-the-art technology and high-quality materials, we offer precision laser cutting services that provides fantastic results. Requirements to setup production begins with a digitized design file and your industry specific materials. LA Laser Cutting services include laser cutting and engraving, graphic design, custom finishing, painting and fabrication, as well additional specialized works. By using laser for cutting, we avoid machining waste and defects, and reduce production costs. The small spot size of a fiber optic laser provides high quality cut edges with minimal material warping, ideal for the food, medical, and many other industries. There are several different types of laser cutting machines available, though all follow a similar process. Fusion cutting, also known as melt and blow cutting, involves blowing molten material from the cutting area using pressurized gas. Since our formation, we’ve built a solid reputation for laser cutting aluminium sheet with the highest levels of accuracy and quality. Laser cutting beats traditional methods of cutting, delivering much cleaner, smoother edges and allowing extremely precise measurements. Read a more comprehensive list of the materials that we can laser cut and laser etch. Our machining expertise is well demonstrated by our precision laser cutting services. The B-made workshops at 22 Gordon Street and Here East have different laser cutters. It’s compatible with a wide range of materials, including leather, wood, acrylic, glass, fabric, cardboard, and can even engrave metal materials like anodized aluminum and titanium. Most commonly materials cut by our laser cutter are acrylics, wood, card and fabric. The Glowforge Plus is a professional-grade laser cutter that is both easy-to-use and highly reliable.
