Making Light Work for 30 years - Projects

Member News

The challenge set to Subcon was to maintain a 0.5mm tolerance whilst not only protecting a highly polished surface but keeping the shape of the pressing during the laser cutting process.

Anyone familiar with working on deep drawn pressings will fully understand the issues faced when trying to obtain a given shape from a deep drawn pressing, further compounded in this case by the fact that the material used was stainless steel.

The stresses within the pressing will cause the part to "ping" and distort when the laser cutting process starts to release the object part.

In this case we had to design and manufacture a fixture that would keep the shape of the part without damaging the all important polished surface, whilst maintaining a high degree of accuracy during the 3D laser cutting process.
