LaserSpeed provides fast and easy laser cutting services. Laser cutting is a solution when clean precise shapes cut from flat sheet materials is required. To guarantee high speed and quality, LaserSpeed uses high precision Amada machinery (CNC Laser Cutter) and specialised programming software.
Laser cutting is a very efficient way to cut a huge variety of materials fast and to create accurate results with minimal waste. This technique produces square, clean and burr free edges with minimal heat input to the surrounding material.
Laser cutting is also used for producing signage, labels, logos and screens.
Laser Cutting Capacities
- Maximum sheet size: 3000mm x 1500mm
- Maximum sheet weight: 890kg
- Typical machining tolerance: +/- 0.1mm

Advantages of LaserSpeed's laser cutting machine
- Laser cutting is accurate, down to the hundredth of a millimetre
- The speed of the machines and low cost of production allow for rapid prototyping and iteration of products and design
- Once a design is perfected and cutting as desired, this process can be repeated and the laser cutter will churn out the design again and again with exact replication of detail
- One-off designs can be created for a relatively low cost
What is flat sheet laser cutting used for?
What is Laser Cutting?
Laser cutting system works by directing the output of high-power laser to cut and mark materials.
A high power CO2 laser beam is directed via a series of fixed and moving mirrors to the cutting head. Here, the beam is focused to a pinpoint and is projected through a small nozzle. A gas jet of air, oxygen or nitrogen is also passed through the nozzle. The material being cut is vaporised by the intense energy of the beam and ejected by the gas jet. The cutting head travels over the material by computer control, and a very thin, neat cut is produced. Laser cutting allows to cut and engrave flat surfaces such as wood, plastics, paper, metal and glass. The machine reads from a digital file to essentially finely burn materials to create a precise replica of your design.
Precision laser cutting is used in a range of applications and industries such as:
- signage making
- architectural model making
- fashion design and fabric cutting
- jewellery making
- wedding invitations
- food, wine and beverage
