Why Laser Cut ExampleWhy Laser Cutting – One of the more important advantages of laser cutting is that of time – and in turn – cost. The need for hard tooling is eliminated and this can save many thousands of pounds, and several weeks delay. Modifications can be made instantly.

The virtues of laser cutting or laser profiling have been rigorously portrayed since the process became regularly used as a sub-contract service, around twenty-five years ago. A large amount of laser cutting work would – at one time – have been carried out by gas cutting.  Laser cutting does not cause distortion through heat. It leaves a clean edge and is able to include holes and cut outs of close to any shape or size. Laser cutting provides customers with a consistent product that can – in most cases – be integrated immediately into their product. The fact that standard tolerances for laser cutting are around 20% of those for gas cutting is an added bonus to many customers and not a strict requirement.
