Process: Laser Cutting


Laser cutting is used to profile (cut) metal predominantly, but also plastics and textiles. By aiming a laser at a sheet of material, the required design is cut as the laser moves in accordance with the design file uploaded. Laser cutting is capable of producing parts with a quality finish on the edges and intricate designs are also achievable. This makes it a popular cutting choice for a wide range of applications and industries including construction, marine, automotive, consumer products and industrial machinery. Laser cutting can also be used to produce piece parts that are later folded and welded as part of a larger assembly.

    Profiling-Laser Cutting

    This new buyer is looking for a supplier to produce a laser cut panel to attach to the side of a pergola. The image attached shows the essence of what they would like, i.e. a fluid, natural design (ignoring the heart shape).
