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.

Laser Cutting projects for quote

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Suppliers with the immediate capacity available to laser cut the attached set of parts are asked to make contact with this buyer at their earliest convenience. They require delivery of the attached components by mid-June and will look favourably upon quotes from companies that can offer a quick turnaround in accordance with this schedule. All items are to be profiled from 5mm-8mm thick mild steel, with quotes required on substantial quantities of each individual item. Alongside this requirement, there may be scope for the successful supplier to assist within additional projects in future, as the buyer spends an impressive £600,000 a year on the services of subcontract fabrication companies.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

This company is looking for the assistance of a supplier who is able to profile the attached cam lever from steel. Quotes are currently sought on 10,000 and 20,000 off of this item, with an immediate order for the vendor that the client chooses to work alongside. This component will be used within an industrial machinery application and could lead to the successful supplier being asked to assist within additional projects moving forward.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Suppliers that can facilitate immediate manufacture of the attached mild steel component are asked to get in touch with this buyer at their earliest convenience. The component in question exceeds two metres in length and therefore, interested parties must be able to accommodate larger items. The client operates within the construction industry and outsources fabrication work to the tune of £100,000 every year. Interested vendors are asked to state their best price and lead time for 2 off of this part, with potential for additional projects to follow in future.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Exciting opportunity for laser cutting companies to win a long-term customer, who requires substantial quantities of the attached components every six weeks. This company specialises in the manufacture of hydraulic rams and spends in excess of £80,000 a year on subcontract fabrication. The required components are to be profiled from mild steel, with prices needed on 500 and 1000 off of each. These items 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

This company operates within the industrial machinery sector, spending upwards of £15,000 on subcontract fabrication services every year. They are currently trying to identify a new supplier who is able to assist them with the manufacture of a prototype hanger strip - a part which is to be profiled from stainless steel. In addition to the prototypes, the client also seeks quotes on the production runs that are due to follow.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

This company - a manufacturer of scientific apparatus that outsources upwards of £150,000 worth of fabrication work annually - seeks a supplier that is able to assist them with the profiling of stainless steel spanners. This is a new design which the client does not have the in-house capabilities to manufacture themselves. Therefore, they are looking to partner with a third party who can produce this item on an ad-hoc basis, in line with customer demand. They may also make additional opportunities available to the company that they choose to work with, meaning that there is scope to develop the relationship further.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Production of a hanging mesh panel is needed, on behalf of a manufacturer of point of display stands that spends in excess of £50,000 a year on subcontract fabrication. They are looking to work with a sheet metal company that has the capacity available to provide 1 off of this item as soon as possible, followed by additional orders of 30 off at a later date. This enquiry will be a good fit for suppliers that are able to facilitate a fast turnaround, whilst offering a high quality end product.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

This recovery vehicle manufacturer is looking for a supplier who is able to produce the attached components from mild steel. The client outsources a lot of work that is similar in nature and spends £80,000 annually in the realms of subcontract fabrication; therefore, there may also be additional profiling requirements from this buyer moving forward, to run alongside this ongoing project.

Fabrication-Laser Cutting

Laser cutting of two separate plate designs is needed, on behalf of a company that requires these components for end use within an industrial machinery application. The client has an immediate order to place for the initial prototypes, with full production to follow. Therefore quotes are sought on numerous batch sizes, as well as the engraving element of the project if possible.
