LASER CUTTING

CNC Laser Cutting Midlands

We are equipped with High-Speed Fiber Laser Cutting technology that excels at medium to high volume runs. The laser head on our machine travels on a system of magnets, making it an even faster and even more accurate machine than you see with traditional, mechanical technologies. Supported by a 15T automated sheet load/offload cell, our setup is truly designed to maximise output and efficiency.


WHAT IS LASER CUTTING OR PROFILING?

A technology that uses a laser to cut materials and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications.

Cutting is achieved by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.

The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporises away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.

The laser is then programmed to follow the design to be cut into the material.

The most modern techniques use a fiber optic delivery system which produces a much purer beam, using less power than traditional CO2 machines. Unifabs are equipped with the latest machinery using the fiber delivery method.

ADVANTAGES OF LASER CUTTING METAL

  • As no tooling is required, there are very few limitations to what can be cut using a laser. Generally, if it can be drawn in 2D, it can be profiled!
  • Laser technology also enables you to cut thicker material than is possible on a CNC Punching machine, meaning we can bring a wider range of parts together in our fabrications.
