SSC’s 6kW ByAutonom lasers can compete with punching on thin gauge material, where we have the ability to cut 10 holes per second on 2mm mild steel, perfect for the Retail Sector. This means we become extremely competitive within the retail sector where large volumes and fast turnarounds are imperative. With our CNC lasers and Press Brakes, there is also the guarantee of repeatability that your first part will be exactly the same as your last.
Goods Produced for the Retail Industry
When producing laser cut components for the retail industry, you’d be surprised how varied the requests can sometimes be. We could be laser cutting a bracket for a mobile phone holder, doing some flat, fold and tube cutting for a store display, or working on signage for a store. We’ve also recently produced panels for a large supermarket chain’s escalators, bumper rails along the aisles and slotted tubes for shelving, sunglasses displays, perforated panels for drinks displays and newspaper stands.
We’ve got a few projects in the pipeline planned in for the foreseeable future; we’ll be working on decorative panels and bar tops for the hospitality sector, some stunning brass table legs, and even spiral staircases! We’re also working on some more stainless steel and glass balustrades and signage/logo plates.
What’s The Best Material For The Retail Industry?
The majority of the items we produce for the retail industry is manufactured from mild steel and stainless steel, and the reason for this is that work required is high volume and competitive. However, this doesn’t limit you to just this material. We’re currently carrying out work for retail clients in brass, stainless steel and zinc.
Do I need to provide you with the CAD work?
Not at all. We find that a lot of our retail clients do already have their CAD drawings for developments prepared, ready for us to take it to production – however, we also have in-house CAD engineers who are more than happy to assist with the CAD development before taking it to be manufactured. For example, when a well-known gym equipment retailer got touch with us regarding their in-store rig, we helped heavily with the research and development for their tube work and thoroughly enjoyed being able to be a part of the whole process, from start to finish.
We’ve recently been working on helping develop the point of sale stands for Superdry stores, to ensure that the project completed is world-class and totally accurate. Our clients’ designs are provided in full detail so that we know we’re working towards producing goods that are exactly to our clients’ specifications and high expectations.
There are virtually no limits to what we can achieve for you, so we’d love for you to get in touch with any projects you have in mind.
