As a leading sheet metal cutting company, Hutchinson Engineering Birmingham are known to be early adopters of the latest technology. Back in the 90s we were one of the first sub-contractors to invest in laser cutting machinery. Now our laser cutting services are available to businesses in the West Midlands. Every component that is processed will pass through some form of laser cutting.

Why laser cutting?

Our team’s knowledge, best practice and commitment to quality enables us to stay at the forefront of laser cutting, even in an increasingly crowded market place. We have experience and expertise of working within the following sectors: AEROSPACE , MEDICALMATERIALS HANDLING & RECYCLINGCOACH-BUILDING  / ROAD TRANSPORT AND AGRICULTURE.

Benefits of laser cutting

  • In comparison with laser punching,  laser cutting results in a superior edge finish removing the need for de-burring or additional finishing
  • Ability to incorporate intricate detail & marking
  • Any contour or complex shapes and designs can be cut out with lasers using software/ CAD instead of tooling
  • Faster turnaround times than other profile cutting methods
  • Component heat distortion is visibly reduced leading to minimal workpiece distortion,
  • Using a nitrogen assist gas, a polished edge finish can be achieved on materials like stainless steel
  • Metal can be processed without any physical contact / use of force
  • Slitting is done at high speed, precisely, with a small kerf
  • High processing speed results
  • Cut surfaces have little roughness; the thinner the metal sheet, the smoother the edge
