The team at gf laser offer a comprehensive service to the Automotive Sector for 5 axis laser cutting on a production or prototype basis.
Many low volume applications are turning to 5 axis laser cutting as a viable alternative to manufacturing and running cutting tools. As well as removing the need for large up-front payments, part modifications can be made at any time throughout the development cycle without incurring high tool modification costs.
3D Laser Processing for Tooling Development Projects
Whether it is for prototype parts or to provide relief in the event of tool breakdowns, gf laser has wide ranging experience in working with tooling companies. Working on a 24 hour shift pattern we can supply parts at short notice and assist in CAD changes to trim and apertures.
With a range of presses available on site gf laser can provide a complete solution to production, tryout / prototype or press relief projects. Components can be pressed and laser trimmed on site to reduce logistics and setup costs.
In addition, many customers have benefitted from the ability to laser parts and then re-strike on site. This can vastly reduce the costs associated with Quality checks as it reduces the time taken to check that form and re-strike tooling are correct.
As well as being approved to ISO 9001:2000 gf laser has a dedicated Quality department operating the latest checking tools. This includes a laser Faro ScanArm and traditional C.M.M measuring equipment. We can also incorporate any KANBAN or JIT processes within our own quality systems.Back to Services
