Burr free aluminium laser cutting using co2 fibre lasers

Many laser-cutting companies won’t laser cut aluminium because, without the right care and skills, aluminium burrs easily, its reflectivity can damage lasers and is often hard to run. Since the 1990s, we’ve built a solid reputation for laser cutting aluminium sheet with the highest levels of accuracy.

We understand and use our high-speed, Trumpf Fibre CO2 lasers’ advanced settings to deliver the highest quality aluminium laser cutting service. With two CO2 lasers at our West Midlands site, there’s plenty of capacity to run your order quickly – another reason why can turn work around so quickly.

LASER CUTTING ALUMINIUMReflection and burring issues with laser cut aluminium reflect the metal’s relative softness compared to materials like stainless steel. To overcome this, we understand which aluminium grades run best, and apply constant attention during cutting. This delivers difficult cuts such as burr free 7 mm holes in 8 mm material..

Experience and advanced laser cutting facilities give you press-ready, precision-cut product every time. And with no need for separate, costly, deburring, we’re saving you even more time and money.

What Aluminium Thicknesses do we cut?

We laser cut aluminium sheet with thicknesses from 0.5 mm to 12 mm. From experience, this covers most needs, including 8 mm sheet.

However, if you need thicker aluminium profiling than is possible with our laser cutting service, you’ll appreciate the convenience of the water jetting and machining we offer through approved suppliers.

We’re much more than just an aluminium cutting service. For your one-stop convenience, as well as laser cutting, ancillary services include aluminium folding, tapping, powder coating and drilling.

So why use us for your aluminium laser cutting?

Because we successfully overcome the toughest challenges of aluminium laser-cutting. For more on laser-cut aluminium challenges, including those caused by the reflectivity of sheet aluminium and pooled molten metal, The Welding Institute (TWI) website is helpful.

As an independent body, TWI bears out our commitment to consistent cutting parameters during the laser cutting process. And full exploitation of equipment capabilities. Such factors, plus long experience, mean we confidently laser-cut aluminium to the highest standards where others can’t (or won’t).

Like our 5-Axis Laser Cutting service, our aluminium cutting equipment meets demanding ISO 9001:2008 quality standards. And dedicated in-house quality control further reassures you that everything we cut is checked meticulously before dispatching your order – on schedule and often within a few days.
