2020 is here! We are firmly into the new decade and with that comes new challenges, goals and new possibilities for UK manufacturers to partner with SSC Laser Cutting for their laser cutting requirements. Also, 2020 is a massive year for SSC Laser Cutting. In September we celebrate our 20th year. That’s 20 years of delivering high-quality laser cutting solutions to the UK’s leading metal manufacturers. We’ll be celebrating in style later this year, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming news about our big birthday!
2020 brings new challenges for all manufacturers, and like prior years, SSC Laser Cutting is in a fantastic position to offer a full one-stop-shop solution for your laser cutting needs.
Why partner with SSC Laser Cutting? Well, to start the new year and new decade, we have compiled the top 20 reasons (for 2020) why you should partner with SSC Laser Cutting this year.
1 Quality Laser Cutting
When we talk about “quality”, we aren’t talking about our accreditations (although we hold CE Marking to execution class 3 and ISO 9001:2015). We are talking about being a quality supplier. That means quick and accurate quotes, consistent pricing, fast turnaround of parts, great communication, fantastic packaging and great labelling and paperwork. But don’t take our word for it, listen to what our customers say and read their testimonials. Head over to our case study section to read all about how we have helped a few of our clients with quality laser cutting services and all for differing reasons.
If you are working to tight time constraints, you won’t want to utilise a cutting method that takes time to set up over and over again per cut. With laser cutting, once the design is uploaded, your components can be cut in minutes. It means you can get your parts in days, not weeks! Perfect for those jobs with tight timescales.
We also understand that getting a quote for your components is essential too; not only will it give you an indication of your project cost, but it is the first step in getting your project started. We have an in-house team who work with you to get your quote completed and over to you as quickly as possible, so you can get your project started ASAP. Did you know? We aim to get our quotations back within 4 hours!
We have a long-standing relationship with Bystronic, BLM Adige and Amada. With our 10kW Fiber Laser for flat and LT8.10 for tube, our laser cutting equipment is at the forefront of laser cutting technology, material handling, speed and quality of finish. And with our Amada and Bystronic press brakes, we harness the best folding technology for any job. Big or small, we have the press brakes to do it.
4 ISO and CE Marking Accreditations
If you are looking for quality, look no further than SSC Laser Cutting. SSC hold ISO 9001:2015 and CE Marking EN 1090-1: 2009+A1: 2011. Our accreditations show that we are serious about ensuring all of our clients receive a high-quality service, including full traceability of all materials used, and you will have the confidence that you get the exact material you asked for.
5 One Stop-Stop
We really are a one-stop-shop for all of our customers. Not only do we have Fiber and CO2 flat bed lasers, a tube laser and press brakes, we also have multi-site manufacturing. Couple that with the fact all of our sales team are experts in all areas of our production capabilities and you really have no need to operate a dual-source supply with other laser providers. As SSC has an in-house dedicated team, it also means we are a one-stop-shop for everything laser cutting. You won’t need to go to any other providers or sub-contractors for additional services.
As we operate multi-site manufacturing hubs, we can move projects site to site if needed. If one of our laser cutting machines go down, we can move the project to another of our facilities. If this happens, it means that no matter the situation, our customers still get an uninterrupted service regardless. The advantage to you, the customer, is not only confidence in supply, but you can also save on number of orders raised, paperwork, invoices, phone calls and get all your deliveries for your orders and projects in one hit, saving time and money throughout your business.
6 Dedicated Team
To make sure you get the best service possible; whatever your requirement, if it is within our scope, you have access to a team of expert customers sales and support advisors to ensure you get the parts you need, when you need them. We aim to be World Class in customer service and do what we say we are going to do, when we say we are going to do it.
At SSC, we like to pride ourselves on our professional approach to laser cutting. From start to finish you will be in contact with a member of our team who regularly updates you on every part of your job from a pre-quote call when we receive your enquiry, through to a post-delivery call and to make sure everything is okay with your parts and that you are happy. You will be left in no doubt as to the progress of your enquiry and status of your order.
8 Precision Laser Cutting
Do you need to produce components and parts that need to be laser cut to an exact size or shape? Don’t worry, with laser cutting we can provide parts to plus or minus 0.2mm, but we can also work to tighter tolerances if needed. Just ask. We all know there are certain projects that push the boundaries and capabilities of technology, we thrive on this and love a challenge, but…we also give realistic expectations.
The team at SSC have decades of combined experience between them, from all different backgrounds and industries. This combined experience means we have the skills and knowledge to produce a wide range of components and parts to all sizes and specifications.

12 Non-Ferrous Laser Cutting
With the introduction of our two 10kW fiber laser cutters, we have increased our capacity for non-ferrous laser cutting. The team at SSC Laser can now cut thicker Stainless Steel (30mm) and Aluminium (30mm) and, we can also now cut highly reflective metals such as brass and copper which proved difficult on the CO2 lasers due to the high reflectivity.

Whatever your industry, we have experience of dealing with it.

15 Cost-Effective Laser Cutting
As we can produce parts in days, not weeks, we can help reduce the timescales on our customer’s projects. In a world where time means money, every second counts, with quotes in under 4 hours our target, and unbelievably fast lead times, you can have parts delivered and on your shop floor before many have even quoted.
16 Green Supplier
Back in December, we moved our manufacturing facility to a green energy source. Customers can rest assured in the fact that their components are produced via utilising a green energy source. At SSC, we are serious about becoming a carbon-neutral manufacturer. Moving our energy supplier to a green source is one of the most significant ways we attain this goal. Our laser cutting machines already run on less power than ever before, but with this change, we have made a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint further. While we might have to pay a little bit more for clean energy, we can rest assured in the fact that we are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
17 Design Aid
Some of our customers know exactly what they want. But don’t worry if you don’t, our in-house CAD/CAM team can recreate your designs from a sketch on a piece of paper. Our team are also there to help support you in offering advice on how to best utilise laser cutting technology in the manufacture of your parts. Utilise Flat Laser and Tube Laser technology and remove items from your Bill of Materials, use Tab and slot to ease assembly. No more drilling, milling and sawing. Call us today and let us help you!
18 Investment in Skills
Over the past few years, as technology has changed, so have we. We have made sure that all of our staff are trained in the most up-to-date laser cutting methods and standards so that our customers get the best possible service. Recently, our customer sales and support teams visited local engineering businesses and OEM’s to better learn and understand how the laser cutting service we provide fits into their business. These visits further expanded our team’s knowledge, helping them better understand each customer’s requirements and how best to meet their laser cutting needs.

Not many laser cutting companies boast 20 years in the industry! SSC has a rich history and knowledge when it comes to laser cutting. Over the past 20 years, we have made significant reinvestment in technology and skills, making us one of the UK’s leading laser cutting sub-contractor.
