Cirrus Laser, one of the UK’s largest sub-contract laser and water jet cutting companies, has significantly increased its manufacturing process with the introduction of a new custom-built machine, sourced by leading supplier of metal finishing equipment and consumables, Engineering Utilities.
Cirrus Laser, which laser cuts mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, rare metals and Mu metal for a variety of industrial sectors, set about searching for a new machine that would help the company speed up its deburring, edge rounding and surface finishing processes. Engineering Utilities used its expertise and exclusive contacts to source Cirrus Laser a Loewer K4TD 1350 Beltmaster machine – the first of its kind in the UK.
The Loewer K4TD 1350 Beltmaster performs deburring, edge rounding and surface finishing processes in one machine and has helped the company to significantly improve its production speeds. The machine is extremely compact, which not only saves valuable factory floor space, but is also much more energy efficient, proving to be cost effective for Cirrus Laser.
David Connaway, managing director at Cirrus Laser, said: “The new Loewer machine sourced by Engineering Utilities has been a valuable asset to our production process, particularly when deburring which was previously done by hand. This now means our experts can increase the capacity and output that we deliver for customers.”
