FAST LASER CUTTING

Laser cutting offers a fast, accurate and cost-effective method to cut a huge range of materials. RENND operates a range of state-of-the-art laser cutting equipment allowing us to offer an impresive level of production service particularly suited to one-offs and prototype scale projects.  We use a range of techniques and tools in order to get the best results for the different materials we can work with, from traditional laser cutting to router cutting.  This allows us to expand our options for cutting and gives our customers a wider range of laser cutting services to choose from.

Laser cutting is a quick way to process materials, with the heat from the laser essentially burning, melting or vapourising the material!  A gas, called an “assist gas” is used to clear away the molten/burnt material or gas vapour.  The process of laser cutting has actually been around since the 1970s, with the first main application of this technique used for sign-making, however it is now used for a vast array of industry groups and to process a huge range of materials for different uses.

WHEN TO USE LASER CUTTING

Here at RENND, we work with a wide range of industry groups to produce products using our laser cutting expertise.  There are lots of different industries which use laser cutting, and many, many opportunities to use these skills.  Some examples of times laser cutting is used include:

  • engineering, manufacturing and industry – ideal for quickly producing parts and components
  • architechture and interiors – lasers are perfect for creating decorative panels, brackets and bits
  • art and sculture – detailed cutting with ease
  • stencils and signs – laser cut stencils and signs are always clean and detailed

We have a range of laser cutting tools available and the skills and knowledge to produce high quality craftsmanship every time, regardless of the complexity of your project!  Highly technological computer based designs can be used to create incredibly intricate laser cut products.  Whether you are looking for a single item or a bulk order, we can deliver fast and accurate results as we operate our laser cutting machinery 24/7.

WHY CHOOSE LASER CUTTING

Laser cutting technology is a really popular service which we offer.  There are lots of reasons why laser cutting with RENND is in high demand!  It offers a very high level of accuracy, which you simply cannot get with other cutting methods.  We can work to an incredible level of detail, with lasers able to cut mere millimeters apart.  Laser cutting is easily repeatable and produces consistent results with a huge range of materials at your disposal.  It is a quick process, which can help keep production costs low and the costs for materials are relatively low – something we know is important for virtually all projects we work on!

Lots of our clients have chosen our laser cutting service because we offer such a high level of workmanship through our dedicated laser cutting expert team.  We are able to work with any order, large or small, as we ensure our machinery is always running – no down time with our laser services.  We keep you in the loop throughout the design and manufacture procedure, and we are always contactable to discuss your laser cutting project, whichever stage you are at.

LOW COST LASER CUTTING

With no minimum order quantities or small-job surcharges, RENND offers incredible value for money without sacrificing quality.  Many other laser cutting service providers will only work with bulk orders, or for large companies, but we insist on providing the same great service to all our clients, no matter how small (or big!) you are.  From the smallest individual prototypes through to decorative artwork for your home, or engineering parts for a large company, or industrial complex.

We feel it is important that all projects get the same care and attention to detail, so we make sure our laser cutting services are priced competitively, and offer a great range of options when it comes to materials and the techniques we use.

LASER CUTTING FAQs

By this point you should have a better idea of the sorts of things which are possible when it comes to laser cutting.  We get many questions about our services, so here are a range of our most asked questions about laser cutting.  If you have any further questions which are not answered here, you can always get in touch with the team using the contact form at the bottom of this page.  We will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can.

What is Laser Cutting?

There are many organisations in the UK that offer Laser Cutting Services. The process delivers a precise method of cutting a design from a source file, such as a CAD drawing fed into the Laser Cutting Machine. Typically there are three main types of lasers used within the machine;

  • CO2 Lasers
  • Nd Lasers
  • Nd-YAG Lasers

Here at Rennd we use Nd and CO2 machines which involves firing a laser at a material which cuts by melting, burning or vaporizing the material substrate.

What is the Laser Cutting Process?

There are three 3 main steps to our Laser Cutting process.

Step 1: Preparing Source File + Artwork

Our first step is to configure your artwork to ensure that your project is firstly compatible with our Laser Cutting machines, such as the material used and how fine you require the cut to be.

Step 2: We Configure Our Laser Cutting Machine

Once your design has been appropriately analysed and compatible with our machinery, we lay your chosen material in our laser cutting machine and configure it to cut or engrave your artwork. By adjusting power, frequency and speed to suit your chosen material, we are able to provide a high degree of accuracy.

Step 3: Processing your Project

Our Laser Cutting machine will then follow the exact path of your drawing / artwork to cut out the components that you have drawn. Depending on the type of material used, we may use a protective backing during the cutting process to protect the edges – this can be peeled away after the artwork has been cut.

What materials can you cut?

We are proud to be only one of a few organisations that can work with over 100+ materials such as textiles, fabrics, stone, metals & alloys, plastics, rubbers, wood and other natural materials. If you’re unsure that the material you’re looking to work with is suitable for our machinery, it’s best to get in contact with a member of our specialist team.

Which industries use laser cutting?

Virtually all industries use laser cutting for various means.  From engineering companies to large industrial estates, personal artwork, home products, archtechtural design and stencils or signage, there are always reasons to choose laser cutting.

Do you only take large orders?

No! We can take any order of any size.  We do not charge a surcharge for small orders either.

How much does Laser Cutting cost?

When pricing a laser cutting job there are 3 main factors we consider:

  • Setup time – Some jobs require a large amount of setting up to make sure that material and laser are aligned. If the job requires very little setup the is no extra charge.
  • Laser time – Once we have your design/artwork we can accurately estimate the time required to complete the cut. We charge £0.60 per minute + VAT there is a minimum 30 minute charge.
  • Types of material & material costs – We can provide a wide variety of materials, we are able to advice you on which materials would work well given a specific application. You can provide your own material but please check with us before purchasing it. Some metals are harder to cut than others, for example some metals require us to run extra gas which will incur further costs. Some cuts may require us to use a specialist lens, please let us know what your specific job requirements are so we can give you an accurate estimate.
