Laser cutting is one of the quickest and most accurate methods of cutting material. Having already invested in a range of CNC milling and turning centres, the next logical step was for us to extend our offering to include this service.
Laser Cutting, combined with our Tube Bending and Forming, Fabrication and Heat Shielding services enables GoodFabs to offer a complete end-to-end service from within our Buckinghamshire base.
Our Amada 1212 laser cutting machine allows us to produce high quality components from 0.4mm thick gaskets to 1.2mm silencer skins. The maximum material thickness we can laser cut is 3mm.
As with all the parts we produce, only the finest materials from trusted suppliers are used within the manufacturing process. We can provide material certificates and inspection reports for any part we produce providing customers with complete peace of mind.
How does the laser cutting process work?
For all the laser cut parts we produce a program is created and loaded onto our Amada laser cutting machine. By carefully ‘nesting’ patterns we can ensure minimal sheet wastage and lower costs for our customers.
Once sheet is loaded onto the laser cutting bed and clamped into position, the program takes over and a high-powered laser is directed at the sheet cutting out patterns from simple circular gaskets to elaborate components used in more complex fabricated assemblies.
What materials and thicknesses can we cut?
We can laser cut parts from Inconel 625, Titanium and Stainless Steel (321 & 304) in thicknesses between 0.4mm and 3mm.
What applications can our laser cut parts be used for?
Although traditionally we have manufactured parts for top level motorsport, laser cutting is an ideal solution for the production of parts across a host of industries. These range from agricultural, marine, refrigeration, medical and other OEMs. Equally, the parts we can laser cut can be used within motorcycle systems and small race series' right through to Hyper cars and F1.
Why consider laser cutting?
Laser cutting parts for use in fabricated assemblies offers a range of benefits:
Production of complex, intricate shapes
A smoother, cleaner finish
Reduced production time and costs
