Laser Cutting Service

Our laser cutting service is provided using our innovative Trumpf laser machine. This machine offers high speed, efficient and high cost effective form of profiling sheet metal.

Our laser cutting service ensures all the work is produced at competitive prices and is turned round very quickly while maintaining only the highest quality. All work is produced with a superb clean cut and an oxide-free finish.

Sheet Metal Punching

Sheet metal punching consists of punching, making holes or cutting out pieces of sheet metal for specific requirements using a process called shearing.

Sheet metal punching and shearing is the result of placing a sheet between an upper punch and a lower die. When the sheet is moved around the machine table, the upper punch produced a hole identical to the geometric contour of the die.

Sheet Metal Folding

We have a comprehensive range of sheet metal folding services available and our wide range of tooling enables us to form a variety of geometrics.

On sheet metal folding equipment, the punch is hydraulically forced down, pressing into the die and creating a fold. The variety of punch dimensions determines the geometry and angle of the finished fold.

Sheet Metal Welding

We have a wealth of sheet metal welding techniques available to suit a variety of requirements and productions. Different jobs require different technologies, and we have the skill and expertise to provide a range of services.

Using the correct sheet metal welding technique will achieve the desired results. This is  why we only use high performance welding sets produced by Miller or Murex/ESAB. 

Our services include MIG welding, TIG welding and resistance welding.
