Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is one of the most accurate of methods available for cutting both thick and thin metal with great accuracy.

One of the most accurate of methods

Laser cutting uses a focussed laser beam to melt material in a localised area.  At the same time a co-axial gas jet blows the molten material from the cut.  This allows a continuous cut to be produced either by moving the workpiece or laser beam controlled by CNC.

It can also be used with a wide range of other materials. We offer a first-class and professional service where our engineering skills are complimented by our understanding of the many diverse applications of finished products.

Laser Cutting

Automated laser cutting machines

Carlton Laser have automated laser cutting machines capable of very sophisticated and individually programmable machining.  We can tackle jobs most others would find difficult.

We are able to take your drawings or even just a part, and programme our machine using cad-cam facilities. We can work from your drawings supplied either by hard copy or emailed format.

The principal benefits of the CLS laser cutting service:

  • Short lead times
  • No tooling costs
  • Rapid Preparation of CNC Programme and Design
  • Narrow kerf widths
  • Minimal material distortion
  • Low cost repetition
  • Low set up costs and quick set-up
  • High quality cut does not need finishing
  • Wide range of materials can be profiled
  • Can produce simple or complex parts
  • No abrasive contact leaves no marks
  • Quick set up – small batches
  • Can cut almost any material
