Process: Laser Cutting

Overview

Laser cuttingLaser cutting is a process that uses laser technology to cut materials, usually sheet metal.

Laser cutting uses a continuous or pulsing laser beam to cut. The beam contains a lot of energy which is concentrated in one point. When the beam hits a material, the material vapourizes, burns, melts or cracks. Exactly what happens depends on the material and the laser cutting machine.

Laser cutting results in fine tolerances, because the laser beam is thin and also because it is possible to aim very accurately where the cut is wanted. Since the laser beam is so thin, materials are not particularly affected by thermal heating. The thin beam also makes it possible to cut complex shapes in very thin materials.

Some laser cutting machines also have a third axis, sometimes referred to as a z-axis, which makes it possible to cut three-dimensional.

Two different laser cut parts are required, by a Qimtek member whose subcontract fabrication spend exceeds £50,000 annually. These components are required for end use within the food and beverage industry and thus, will need to be made from stainless steel. Although this is a one-off requirement, there is plenty of similar work from this company which could be extended to the successful supplier.

A design house for electrical gadgets requires urgent production of the attached stainless steel sheet metal component. This will form part of a project to be displayed at an exhibition later in the month, therefore overall quality of the finished item is essential. Given the short deadline, this project may be best suited to a supplier who is looking to fill any immediate capacity.

Exciting opportunity for laser cutting companies to win a long-term customer, who requires substantial quantities of the attached components every six to eight weeks. This company specialises in the manufacture of hydraulic rams and spends in excess of £50,000 a year on subcontract fabrication. The required components are legacy parts, for which there is no current supplier. These are destined for end use within the automotive industry and the buyer would like to collaborate with a Qimtek member for their ongoing supply.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

A selection of stainless steel parts require profiling, on behalf of a Qimtek member that spends in excess of £50,000 a year in the realms of subcontract fabrication. They are looking to collaborate with a supplier who can offer a superior level of quality to these parts, which are destined for end use within the food and beverage industry. Owing to the large amount of outsourced fabrication from this buyer, there may be an opportunity for the successful supplier to assist them with similar projects moving forward.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Opportunity to assist a company that specialises in the manufacture of suspension systems and spends over £50,000 a year on subcontract fabrication services. They are looking for a new supplier to produce the attached spacers from aluminium. There are substantial annual quantities of this part required, meaning that this enquiry may be of particular interest to those that prefer high volumes. This will be ongoing work for the successful supplier, creating an ideal opportunity to grow your long-term customer base.
