The corrosion resistant nature of stainless steel makes it a popular choice for lots of products. Although it is more expensive than mild steel the fact that it can stand up to harsh environments means that it is often the metal of choice where manufactured parts have to face up to the elements.
Typically we provide stainless steel laser cutting from 0.5mm thick to 12mm thick and the metal is laser cut using nitrogen for a clean cut edge. Stainless steel laser cutting using more nitrogen for cutting than most other metals, in order to meet our customers’ needs we create our own nitrogen using a specialist nitrogen generation system that pipes the gas direct to each laser cutting machine.
Laser cut stainless steel parts are used in many different applications including petrochemical where we supply thousands of parts each month including valve handles.
