Laser cut stainless steel bespoke handrail blank
Great example of using our Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutting machine to produce bespoke hand rails. The decorative part details were taken direct from our customers DXF CAD files. Reading it straight into Radan CAD/CAM software was no problem. All we had to do was to clean up the images a little and we were away, laser cutting. All the parts were laser cut for this one off project in under an hour and then onto CNC bending.
TiG welded stainless steel sheet metal work
Stainless steel TiG welds beautifully. Of all the sheet metal materials we are asked to weld stainless steel is the best. These display board housings were fabricated from 304 stainless steel that had been CNC punched, CNC folded and then TiG welded. If you look carefully you can still see the bending marks used on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes to create the curved corner sections. These bend marks were removed during the cleaning up and de-burring process. Once the housings were polished there was no sign of the manufacturing process.
Folding a small stainless steel channel
Some stainless steel sheet metal work needs to be protected when being manufactured. We can specify to the material stockists that we want a peelable plastic film on the surface of the sheet metal. Even with this protective film sometimes the bending process can still press lines into the surface of the sheet from the CNC bend blocks. Using an extra thick bend film, as in the photo, enables us to ensure the part will have no marks on the outside surface of the bend.
