Constant Manufacturing can precision laser cut on-site using state-of-the-art sheet metal laser cutting technology
Laser cutting is the modern way to cut and manufacture from sheet metal due to the unrivalled benefits and cost savings to both us the manufacturer and you the client. As there is no tooling costs, and therefore no outlay, we can produce small batch runs that would sometimes be unthinkable using traditional techniques. With our experienced CAD design team, they can quickly and efficiently set up a flat pattern, send it over to the TruLaser 3030 machine and have a prototype to the customer by the end of the day due to the vast abilities of the laser cutter and the quick prototyping turnaround we offer at Constant Manufacturing.
One of the biggest benefits is the precision and accuracy the method of laser cutting offers. It boasts contour tolerances of typically +/- 0.2mm and superior cut-edge quality with no burrs. The quick, clean and efficient process of laser cutting means there is reduced manual labour and handling post cut.
High precision laser cutting power with TruLaser 3030
Quick prototype and short batch turnaround for all types of products from metal enclosures to ventilation cover plates
We can cut up to 3000x1500mm metal sheet
Can cut sheets up to 25mm in thickness for mild steel, 20mm for stainless steel and 12mm for aluminium
We can cut a wider range of tubular and sheet metal including stainless steel, aluminium and steel
Simply, CNC laser cutting is the use of a computerised number control program (CNC) to control a laser to cut a piece of sheet metal.
A CAD Design Engineer programs a cutting pattern such as a motorbike component, specifically for a CNC laser machine to cut. Then, the laser cutter follows the program by cutting the pattern using a high-power laser optic head cutting the sheet metal or tublar metal piece and revealing the cut piece. A conveyor then removes any latent pieces (slag) reducing the clean up time before the next piece is cut.
The Trumpf TruLaser 3030 can cut a range of materials, flexible or flimsy, with great precision without the need for clamping as laser cutting is a non-contact process. The TruLaser 3030 comes fully equipped with a 5 kilowatt CO2 laser head for sheet thicknesses up to 25mm for mild steel. With the addition of the FastLine we’ve reduced processing time by average of 20%.
