Advanced Cutting Technology  utilise new technology for laser cutting of metals and plastics.

Metals - Of all the thermal cutting processes, laser cutting has the least thermal affect on metals. Laser cut edges offer finished quality and it eliminates the need for further deburring or grinding. Metals that ideally cut with laser are: mild steel up to 20mm, carbon steel up to 20mm as well as alloy and tool steel. Steels can be cut by laser regardless of their hardness.

Organics (Plastics) - The intense heat source of the laser cutting device breaks down the polymer chains of plastic to provide fast, accurate cutting. In acrylics, laser cutting provides a clean mirror finished edge that requires no further work.
