Here’s a nice little video of us laser cutting aluminium sheet metal work with our Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutter. You can get a real feel for the speed of the laser cutting machine when cutting a thin sheet of metal and the ease with which it can process straight and curved profiles. Laser cutting aluminium sheet metal work can be carried out using either nitrogen or compressed air as the cutting assist gas. In this case we are using compressed air as the components were not too thick and the edge finish achieved was more than acceptable.
Stood alongside our laser cutting machine are 2 Trumpf CNC punch presses which can process a wide range of sheet metal materials and thicknesses. Often when we are laser cutting aluminium sheet metal work we may then use one of our CNC punch presses to finish off a component. Perhaps it will need ventilation louvres, formed dimples or self tapping screw forms all of which can easily be pressed in after laser cutting. Having both types of blank processing machines enables V and F Sheet Metal to provide the right manufacturing process to suit your sheet metal work design and volumes.
Laser cutting aluminium sheet metal work is just one of the metals that we often cut alongside mild steel and stainless alloys. Being a fibre laser we can also cut brass and copper without any fuss right up to 6mm thick.
