Yorkshire Profiles is offering a UK nationwide laser-cutting service for prototype work and repeat bulk orders. The company uses a 4kW CO2 laser and offers a fast turnaround for clients requiring a just-in-time service.

The ISO9001:2008-certified company said it is able to keep laser-cutting costs to a minimum by storing bulk liquids (for laser-assist gases) rather than the more expensive gas banks used by other fabrication companies.

A combination of a ball bearing loading system, a stainless steel bed for preventing mild steel cross contamination and a flying optic laser for non-contact cutting ensures parts are produced to a high standard, according to Yorkshire Profiles.

Unlike plasma cutting, lasers only have a small heat-affected zone, which often results in a better and more accurate cut with less taper on edges.

Yorkshire Profiles

Yorkshire Profiles Ltd offers a high-quality laser-cutting service, waterjet-cutting service and sheet-metal fabrication service at affordable prices.

With a high-capacity laser-cutting setup, Yorkshire Profiles can supply parts cut up to 3,000 x 1,500mm out of materials up to 25mm mild steel, 12mm stainless or 10mm aluminium. The laser can also cut materials such as galvanised steel, Zintec and Hardox. Turnaround times are generally between 24–48 hours on both prototype work and larger orders.

Unlike other flying optic lasers, Yorkshire Profiles has created an alternative machine bed for cutting stainless steel to prevent cross-contamination with mild steel.

The waterjet-cutting service offered can cut virtually all materials up to 150mm thick, from metals to plastics, stones, ceramics, foams, rubbers and so much more. The cold-cutting process does not cause hardened edges, making it ideal for manufacturing parts that require further machining or tapping as the holes can be cut to size.

The cutting tolerances on both services are up to ±0.1mm depending on material thickness.

Sheet-metal folding is the third main service offered and can be accompanied by full fabrication of any assemblies you require.
