Laser Cutting & CNC Punching

Laser Cutting & CNC Punching

Laser cutting and CNC punching are accurate, fast and efficient methods for creating shapes, holes or cuts in sheet metal.

Stevenage Sheet Metal’s state-of-the-art TRUMPF TruLaser 5030 cutting machine and TRUMPF TruMatic 7000 laser / punch combo provide an extensive capability for both cutting and punching to an exceptionally high standard.

This equipment is complemented by the skill and experience of our specialist team who operate it. Their knowledge and expertise enable us to offer these services separately or as a combined laser cutting and CNC punching service.

Laser cutting

Laser cutting offers multiple benefits:

  • High precision and consistency
  • Stricter tolerances and improved finishes
  • Repeatability and traceability
  • Minimises material wastage – reduces costs
  • Requires no tooling – increases speed, reduces costs
  • No reworking required for cleaner cuts – reduces delivery times
  • Improved material handling avoids scratching
  • Cuts sheets up to 25mm thick
  • Ideal for rapid prototyping

  • Sheet, RHS, SHS and many other tube types
  • 0.5-25mm Mild Steel Plate
  • 0.5-25mm Stainless Steel
  • 0.5-25mm Aluminium
  • Combined laser cutting and punching for fast delivery
  • All with highly finished cut surfaces requiring little or no further work
  • Negligible component distortion even with punched material due to the unique self-flattening capabilities of the TRUMPF 7000

CNC punching

CNC punching uses a computer-controlled punch and die to punch holes and shapes in sheet metal. It is a reliable and efficient way to produce sheet metal parts and can produce large quantities of parts quickly and accurately.

CNC punching offers multiple benefits:

  • Highly accurate – produces parts with very tight tolerances
  • Efficient – produces large quantities of parts fast
  • Versatile – creates a wide variety of shapes and sizes of holes or cuts
  • Cost effective – speed and quality can reduce production costs

Stevenage Sheet Metal’s CNC punching capability

  • 1150 x 2950mm punching area up to 8mm thick.
