This image shows two different designs for decorative Christmas baubles. These 0.5mm thick pieces, which have been Laser cut using Nitrogen gas on our large format Fibre laser from Brass sheets directly from customer supplied cad files, will become an addition to a public displayed Christmas tree later this year. Jingle bells Jingle bells!!

Shown in this image is in fact a 2 gang electrical output cover. Each of these ‘covers’ is free issued to us by our customer as a formed piece with only the ‘fixing hole’ on either side included. Once the datum point has been identified on our fixture, which has been designed and manufactured in house to hold 10 parts at a time, we laser cut each aperture out to produce the finished stainless steel cover.
This image shows 6mm thick pickled and oiled mild steel parts which have been laser cut with oxygen gas on our 3030 CO2 3.2kw machine. As these parts are to be later painted to withstand the environmental elements which, as they are to be supplied for the yellow goods sector. The oxide layer is removed by the deburring process prior to any further operations. The result of removing the oxide layer is to increase the adhesion between the part itself and the paint layer, thus ensuring that these parts are fit for function in many years to come.
This photograph shows a laser cut part from 5mm thick mild steel. Due to the size of this piece, roughly measuring 2.4 metres long by 1.7 metres wide. We utilised our largest format machine; which, with a bed size of 4 metres x 2 metres, was easily able to facilitate the 4 metre long sheets which we sourced from our approved supplier especially for producing these parts.
This picture shows a section of what would later become a sunroof mechanism. By utilising our sister company, Moseley Brothers, we are able to supply these sections fully formed for our customer. Gf Laser begins with flatbed laser cutting the flat blanks of these components before passing them over to Moseley Brothers for pressing. Each part is then 5 axis laser cut by us and once again handed over to Moseley Brothers for re-striking to achieve the final form of the component.
This image illustrates a batch of 8mm thick S355 mild steel parts packed up and ready for despatching via our approved, nationwide delivery service. The parts which you can see here have been supplied to meet our customer requirements to ensure that each part is fit for purpose within the demanding automotive sector.

This image shows our customers free issue box section lengths banded and ready for collection. Each 1540mm long length is fixed directly onto the cutting table of our 7040 production 5 axis laser to have the 3 slots cut in. These sections are then used in the reinforcement of super energy efficient doors and windows in both domestic, and commercial environments.

This image shows one of our five axis fixtures. These are all designed from our customer cad model, then laser cut on one of our flatbed machines, before being assembled and welded in house. This actual fixture has been designed to enable the cutting of 5 sections of tube within a single cutting cycle. Vastly decreasing production of large batches.

 

This image is of a new updated version of an existing blank. To increase formability and strength, the material used is a ‘boron steel.’ We have produced a relatively small batch of the initially for our customer to develop to ensure that the final part, which would be a major structural piece in vehicles globally, is fit for the intended function and exceeds all safety levels.

 

This image shows a large panel, measuring roughly 2metres in length by 1 metre in width. These are free issued to us in the final pressed form. On our 7040 split cabin 5 axis laser trim the excess material from the outside edge. We then proceed to include all fixing holes and slots, before finally removing the centre section to create an external panel for the public transport sector. To reduce overall waste we later cut the required stiffening ribs from the removed centre section. The fixture has been designed in such a manner that it is usable for each and every stage of the 5 axis laser cutting of these panels which also vary in overall size.

 

This pictorial illustrates the smooth ‘Tongue tested’ cut we are able to achieve direct from the laser cutting of 15mm S355 mild steel. These actual parts, which have been oxygen cut on our 3030 3.2kw CO2 laser machine will later become the base plate of a welded assembly within the yellow goods sector.

 

This image shows parts which have been nitrogen cut on one of our current three Trumpf flatbed laser cutting machines. Cut from pre galvanised material measuring 5 millimetres in thickness, each part is produced using our customer supplied CAD files. This ensure that, once on site, they simply bolt together accurately without modification. This enables the erection of industrial buildings in the quickest and most cost effective manner, whilst ensuring strength and safety is never compromised.
