Laser cutting 5mm thick mild steel rings
We have been using our new Trumpf 3030 3KW fibre laser for a few months now on sheet metal work. We started by simple moving some jobs over from our CNC punch presses that we were confident with and knew what could be achieved by CNC punching. We then tried out laser cutting sheet metal parts that we would have spent more time deburring if they had been CNC punched. We even laser cut holes into mild steel tubes that we would have drilled before, all with success. We had never CNC punched 5mm mild steel and certainly not circular disks so when this job came up it was a great chance to experiment with the machine and see what could be achieved. The Trumpf laser just ate up this work in no time at all and we were all very impressed.

We are driving this new machine with the same Radan sheet metal CAD/CAM software that we already use for our CNC punch presses so we can easily more jobs from one machine to another to create spare capacity when needed for the odd rush job.
We are now looking forward to expanding the range of parts we can cut in thickness and material type. If you would like to know more about this machine and the type of work that it can cut or perhaps you have a manufacturing project you would like us to quote for please call us on 01489 577786 or send us an email.
