Accurate & Reliable: Laser Cutting Service

Our ISO9001 metal laser cutting service promises to deliver results of excellent quality, each and every time. If you are looking for a company that offers an outstanding sheet metal laser cutting and fabrication service then you have certainly come to the right place.

The technology involved in our set-up means that our sheet metal cutting is not only unbelievably accurate, but is completed at a rapid rate too. For this reason we are able to offer our competitive prices for laser cutting services without compromising on quality – making us one of the leading CNC laser cutters in the UK.

The laser cutters we use are some of the fastest industrial lasers on the market. Our fibre lasers are also fitted with full automation material handling facilities. This allows us to carry out all tasks with a maximum part size of 3000mm x 1500mm and up to 20mm thick with minimal human interaction! Whether it’s a one off part or a very high volume requirement, we are equipped to offer a speed turn-around. Unlike many of our competitors, we deburr all parts as standard for a smooth finish (but we do not de-pip the laser start/stop point).

Benefits of our Laser Cutting Service

There are many advantages to laser cutting, not just for us but also for our clients. Below, we have listed some of the key reasons:

This means that we are able to accommodate our clients’ needs no matter what the time of day. Furthermore, we are also able to keep our production costs as low as possible by keeping overheads low. With Industry 4.0 off-site monitoring of our equipment, downtime is kept to a minimum to ensure there are no unexpected delays to your orders.

Background on Laser Cutting

The history of laser cutting began shortly after the discovery of laser technology, developed at the end of the 1950s by Gordon Gould, Charles Hard Townes and Arthur Leonard Schawlow. This was based upon successfully attempts to concentrate radiation emission of visible light, and the discoveries were published in the 1959 by Gould titled THE LASER, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

How it works?

Laser cutting works by finely directing a laser beam onto a material surface for cutting or engraving. A beam that's emitted from a 'laser tube' is focussed by the use of several mirror reflections sending the beam up towards to 'laser head' in a similar fashion to a periscope. This leads to a lens that further focuses the beam onto the desired material to cut or engrave.

The amount of material cut or engraved by the laser is defined by the kerf. This is the width of cut or groove made by the particular process and will vary depending on the material used. It can also be affected by the laser beam tolerance which determines the initial width of the beam. At Yorkshire Profiles, we have some of the latest laser cutting machines and can offer an incredibly fine tolerance in our machinery.

There is a massive history behind laser cutting and the way it has been developed over the last 5 decades or so. Without advanced developments back in the 60's-70's, we wouldn't be where we are today. With that being said, we have a lot to be thankful for!
