Laser cutting sheet metal with a Trumpf 3030 3KW fiber
We have now been using our new laser cutter for 2 months and we are really pleased with the quality of parts we are producing from it. Whether it’s using compressed air, nitrogen or oxygen as the assist gases we can be sure of a clean edge cut and high production rates. We are still using the Trumpf laser to produce parts that we would have CNC punched so we have more capacity now for urgent jobs. During 2014 we will start to experiment with thicker materials so where we would have sub-contracted out the laser cutting we will now be able to offer this service in house. We have also produced sheet metal work from brass and copper which is ideal on a fibre laser but not good on CO2 lasers making this choice of laser cutter so flexible for us and our customers. If you want to see more examples of laser cut work we are adding pages to the gallery section of the website and there is our YouTube channel with plenty of examples of the laser cutter working on real sheet metal work projects. Have a job you want to have laser cut, please give us a call or e-mail a drawing and we will be happy to help you.
