At Aller Engineering we use a modern Bystronic laser cutting machine, capable of delivering a very fine tolerance and an extremely high quality finish.
Parts may be supplied straight off the laser or put through our parts rumbler, providing a de burred and even surface finish.

When submitting CAD files, we accept the following formats which must be scaled 1:1:
Alternatively, we are able to draw parts from scratch, but this can be very time consuming.
Laser cutting is a thermal process used in the processing of sheet metal. The laser beam is created by the laser source (resonator) using a mixture of inert gasses together with semiconductor excitation modules, that generate the necessary high voltage. This beam is then reflected via mirrors to the machine cutting head where a lens directs it to a very small diameter focal point. When this is in contact with the sheet metal, it melts it and the molten material is blown away by a jet of gas. The moving cutting head follows a programmed path thus creating the required shape and leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.
The technology, first developed in the 1960s, has transformed the cutting industry with its accuracy and versatility. Materials can now be cut to precise measurements and requirements, and at a much quicker speed than ever before.
