    Fabrication-Laser cutting, tube

    These aluminium tubes are to be laser or water jet cut, as part of a new project destined for the food and beverage industry. Quotes are required for 10 off initial prototypes and the client has also advised that this could lead to an ongoing requirement with larger quantities if the testing is successful, making it an ideal opportunity to fill long-term capacity. The diagonal cut needs to twist during cutting if possible, so there are no sharp edges on the top and bottom of the piece. The attached pictures of the side view show this in more detail. Bead blasting, anodising and laser engraving is also required after the tube cutting process, so if you are able to complete these processes alongside the profiling, please do include these within your quote. The buyer is happy to accept quotes for tube cutting only if the extra processes are not available.
