Laser cutting is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high power laser beam to cut flat sheet materials. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line in your digital design. The high precision laser vaporises a cut line through the material, leaving a 90 degree high quality cut edge finish.If there’s one tool that’s coveted by Makerspaces more than any other, it has to be the laser cutter. These high-precision machines can produce both functional and beautiful items. Their versatility allows anyone with access to one to quickly go into production with his or her designs. The power of the laser cutter comes from its ability to cut through a wide range of materials with high precision. Drag-knife cutters — like those on craft cutters and vinyl cutters — can’t penetrate hard and thick materials, while a laser can slice through them like butter. And a CNC router has a hard time creating ultra-sharp details (think about cutting a letter V: the outside edges can be cut away sharply with overlapping passes but the inner point can only be as pointy as the diameter of your router bit). A laser’s beam is so narrow that it can give you that precise detail.
The laser cutter is one of our most versatile manufacturing technology and accounts for over 50% of our business. Huge, with a large flatbed area of 1750 x 3500mm, we can engrave and cut in many flat sheet materials also as square and round tubes including wood, card, leather, cotton, tweed, acrylic and coloured laminates. The laser cutter enables us to personalise a gift, engrave a house or business sign, cut stage set scenery, create laser ply posters, a-frame pavement signs, point of sale shelf talkers, event medals, buttons, leather logo tags, key rings, cut multiple patterns or shapes with exact precision and great speed ... add your logo and make it yours!
