Laser cutting technology has revolutionised the sheet metal fabrication industry, and Rockpress has been at the forefront of this technology from the start.
Our TRUMPF TruLaser precision laser machines can handle almost any steel cutting challenge, including:
- Carbon steels, up to 25mm thick
- Stainless steels, up to 25mm thick
- Aluminium, up to 16mm thick
- Zinc coated steels
Each laser cutter uses nitrogen, oxygen and compressed air cutting technology, which provides complete accuracy, clean cutting and minimal heat residue. Each machine can accommodate a maximum sheet size of 4000mm x 1500mm.
As all cutting instructions and patterns are saved to each machine’s computer memory, repeat work can be completed quickly and with accuracy that is identical to any previous work.
The advantage of laser cutting over guillotining is in the finish. Laser cutting is clean and precise – leaving no burrs on edges and corners of the scored material. Rockpress can even incorporate a discreet radius into the laser cutting process to completely eliminate sharp edges. Read more about Laser Cutting Brisbane.
