Laser cutting copper sheet metal
Having a fibre laser cutter has been a great advantage to us when it’s come to cutting out blank shapes from copper sheet. These simple triangle shapes could have been CNC punched but we would have wasted more material, we would have had to edge de-burr all the shaped to remove the CNC punch marks and the process would have been a lot slower. The Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutter cut the parts straight out without any edge de-burring and used all the sheet here possible to get the best fit of components.
Laser cut copper sheet metal parts
The pattern of copper triangles was arranged by using our Radan CAD/CAM software with it’s schedule module. It enabled us to mix several different shapes and sizes of copper parts together all laser cut from the same thickness sheet to save material and money across the whole project. Whenever we are working with expensive materials like copper sheet we try all possible solutions to get the best material yield when quoting for the work and then actually laser cutting it.
If you have a sheet metal project in copper or brass and you have been told it can’t be laser cut, look again, up to 6mm thick and we can laser cut it for you.
