LASER CUTTING

Laser Cutting in mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium, in thicknesses up to 25mm and 4m x 2m plate size.

Swelco’s metal Laser cutting service provides a fast, flexible and economical means of precision sheet metal cutting and plate profiling.

We run 5.2Kw and 4Kw Bystronic CO2 Bystar and Byspeed machines.

 

Our cutting capacities are:-
Mild steel 25mm
Stainless steel 20mm
Aluminium 15mm

 

The above capacities are for 3 x 1.5m sheets. We also cut 4 x 2m sheets at reduced thicknesses, for further information or a quotation, contact us on +44 (0)1269 831431  Or email – swelco@altron.co.uk

Swelco purchased its first Laser profiling machine in the late 1990’s, investing in what was then new technology. With our 20 years’ experience in laser cutting this is no longer new technology, but technological advances mean that cutting rates are now significantly quicker, the quality of cut is consistent and material capacities are greater. However the benefits of laser cutting still remain:-

  • Accuracy
  • Consistency
  • Cost effective component production
  • Design flexibility / increasing the design envelop
  • Reduced lead times
  • Enables complex shapes that are otherwise difficult or not possible to produce
  • Downstream benefits of accurate and consistent components

 

Technological advances mean that component costs have come down and new software means that dealing with and nesting complex and irregular/ varied shapes is more streamlined and effective, with minimum manual input.

Although we provide a significant amount of flat laser profiles, in many cases laser cutting is the first stage of the production process and bending the component follows, utilizing our CNC pressbrakes. Our integrated software for laser cutting and bending means that this is a seamless operation providing minimum set up time for new parts and eliminating tolerance and programming errors that can otherwise occur.
