The Architectural Industry is very complex when dealing with the delivery of product designs that are of paramount importance. SSC Laser Cutting Services offers the perfect solution for ensuring that your project runs smoothly from the initial quotation to the final delivery of the products. If parts are flat or folded, box section or angle, or if they need secondary operations such as powder coating or anodising, our service is flexible to meet your project’s needs.
How our Laser Cutting Services can assist your project.
Our in-house engineering experts will work alongside your design team and architects to ensure that your design fully utilises the latest laser cutting technology. This will ensure effortless assembly when it arrives on-site. We can assist you in manufacturing everything from base plates and ends caps, to staircases and perforated cladding.
Our Laser Cutting Methods
All methods of laser cutting can be utilised when manufacturing parts for the architecture and construction sectors, and as each component has its own specific set of requirements, the manufacturing process varies for each project.
Our Types of Laser Cutting
The flatbed laser is ideal for manufacturing components using sheet metal, such as base plates, top plates, brackets and solar shading bracketry. Often when dealing with sheet metal, press braking is required to fold the materials to the desired shape.
When it comes to manufacturing multiple parts for bigger frameworks and structures, such as balustrades and staircases, we use a combination of tube and flatbed laser cutting, as well as press braking. However, if we’re creating components using materials that are particularly sensitive to heat, for example, perforated cladding, then we would opt for the fibre laser, as less heat is generated during the cutting process.
The materials in which we use when manufacturing architectural parts also depends on the purpose of the component. Stainless steel, copper and brass all have high aesthetic qualities and are therefore suitable for decorative builds. Stainless steel is particularly well-suited for external decorative structures as it does not rust. Aluminium can also be used for decorative structures due to it’s lightweight, malleability and excellent corrosion resistance.
Many modern buildings use aluminium structures on the building’s exterior to create shapes and curves. All materials are coated with a protective finish or powder coat if being utilised for structural parts.
Our Tube Laser Machines
Our Adige LT8.10 tube laser machine allows us to work with larger and much heavier components that are harder to produce and handle. This means we can manufacture components that other suppliers cannot. Our tube laser has the capability to produce components from a range of Universal Beam sections, which could include steel structures for stadiums and sporting venues.
Traditionally these components posed a few difficulties when producing them. However, this has now been overcome by the means of our 3D laser cutter. Using this type of equipment has allowed us to produce complex components, whilst ensuring a high-quality cut, accuracy and finish.
Our tube laser machine allows for greater precision when producing components from CAD and due to the active focus feature, we are able to also improve the speed and quality of the cutting process.
Our Bystronic ByTube 130 Fiber Tube Laser has opened up our offering to the Architectural Industry. We can now offer Tube Laser Cutting on Aluminium, Brass and Copper Sections, which are widely used in the architectural indsutry due to their light weight and aesthetic properties.
