Our Capabilities

With four state-of-the-art tube laser cutting machines working around the clock, WEC Laser can offer laser cutting of tube, box and most open profiles such as angle and channel with a capability that enables tube laser cutting and laser box section cutting up to a maximum envelope size of 240mm diameter, 6.5m length and 12mm thick. 

Our tube cutting machines complement our Flat Bed Laser Cutting capacity which includes 21 machines which laser cut sheets and plates up to 4m x 2m and 40mm thick.

Our tube cutting machines can cut tubes and profiles with large diameters and wall thicknesses without sacrificing productivity no matter how complex it might be and can laser cut tubes from 8.5 meters long with a diameter of up to 220mm for tube and 200mm for box section. A wall thickness of 12mm can be easily achieved for mild steel.

Our tube cutting machines produce the greatest cutting speed available on the market across a large range of thicknesses and diameters. The loading capability is fully automatic with a capability of handling 5 tonne bundles at a time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tube laser cutting is a precise manufacturing method utilising a focused laser beam to cut tubular materials like metal pipes. The laser melts or vaporises the material along the desired path, creating intricate shapes with minimal heat distortion. This process, conducted in a machine where the tube is securely held, offers high precision, speed, and versatility.

Tube and box laser cutting can process very complex shapes enabling the customer to receive very highly complex and accurate shapes at a fraction of normal fabrication costs. Metal laser cutting is the future of metal fabrication, cost reduction and quality enhancement techniques.

We can laser cut tubes of diameters ranging from  just 19mm all the way to 220mm! Our fibre tube laser cutting machines can cut small diameter tubes at very high speed 

Laser cut tubes and boxes are ideal for general fabrication companies, as the laser cutting process removes the need for second operations such as sawing, punching and drilling, instantly generating huge savings in manufacturing costs.

Our tube cutting machine even cuts complex contours effortlessly and without actually touching the tube producing a scratch free component. Due to the high edge quality of our laser cut tubes, there is virtually no refinishing required.

Compared to conventional processes such as sawing, drilling or milling, our tube laser cutting service enables you to increase productivity, therefore reducing costs and lead times for all your laser cut parts.
