Laser engraving is one of the best ways you can make an incision on a material, without risking any damage to the material itself or its exterior. Our state-of-the-art machine here at Subcon Laser ensures a clean, clear incision which stays visible forever and still looks great years after it’s been done. This is a much more accurate method than traditional forms of engraving, many of which are now arguably archaic.
Here at Subcon Laser our main activities involve the cutting of materials, but believe us when we say we know a thing or two about engraving too. Every year, hundreds of customers – some new, some returning – come to us with pieces of material which they need engraving, and we do it for them both quickly and to an extremely high standard. Laser engraving is a process which requires very little time to complete, and this is one of the reasons it’s so popular in this day and age.
Good software programs are now essential in the laser cutting sector, there are no two ways about it. Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM) are now pretty much the norm across the board, and any company which doesn’t take advantage of the wonderful state-of-the-art software out there is putting themselves at a great disadvantage. We’ve made sure we’re definitely not one of these companies, and have accordingly invested a lot of money in the best programming out there (not to mention a great deal of time in identifying them too).
The computer programs we use here at Subcon Laser are absolutely crucial to our day-to-day goings-on, as without them we wouldn’t be able to process as much work as we now do. Computer-aided design and manufacture ensures a greater level of accuracy – this is one of the best-known advantages to it. There are also a number of other advantages though – chiefly the fact that it allows you to process work at a much quicker pace.
In order to add value and improved response times for our customers, Subcon’s core business requires the holding of unsold stock across a planned range with good availability off the shelf. We offer immediate availability of a wide range of steels in order to provide a fast, efficient service.
In order to comply with our ISO certification, our warehouse maintains a to-the-point inventory where materials are segregated by grade, certification and origin. You can be rest assured that traceability will never be an issue!
Subcon aims to be the partner of choice for laser cut product and services in every part of the United Kingdom. We achieve this by nurturing strong business relationships, by continuously improving our processes and by adding value at every step.
