Laser cutting aluminium sheet metal
Laser cutting aluminium sheet metal work for window frame trims. The profile of these aluminium blanks was perfect for laser cutting with long straight edges and curves on each end. We could have CNC punched them but they would have needed a lot of cleaning up and the ends would have to have been CNC nibbled which is never as clean as laser cutting. There were a range of blanks needed that were all programmed within our Radan sheet metal software and then using the multi-part nesting feature we were able to get the best fit across the whole range of parts that needed to be laser cut for the customers order.
The laser cutting machine is a Trumpf 3030 fibre laser with a 3KW solid state resonator. The viewing screen on the laser cutting machine gives a greenish tint to the photograph as it has to filter the light generated by the laser to protect the operators eyes when viewing the laser in action.
If you have an aluminium sheet metal component that needs laser cutting or any other material we would be happy to take a look for you and produce some prices for you.
