LASER CUTTING
We have our own 4Kw Laser able to Cut 12mm Stainless & 20mm Mild. Ideal for precise and intricate patterns on carbon and stainless steel sheet metal, plu many more materials.
Alma Engineering uses laser cutting as a fast, repeatable and highly accurate process to cut materials. Laser cutting is ideal for high production runs as it is cost effective and has a high degree of consistency and precision.

BEAD BLASTING
Ideal for removing impurities and deposits from your finished stainless steel surfaces and provide a uniform finish. 
Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine glass beads at a high pressure without damaging the surface. It is particularly used on Stainless Steel to achieve a Matt Finish and also helps with non-marking.

SHEET METAL FINISHING
The final finish is one of the most important elements of any manufactured product or structure. The Alma Engineering finishing department produces finishes of an extremely high standard and for companies all over the globe.
We only use the highest quality of abrasives and compounds, that are vigorously tested, to ensure a very high quality finish every time. We can create a very wide range of finishes from a very coarse grain all the way through to mirror finish. We can apply this to a full-size sheet and all manner of different fabricated parts.
