Your One-Stop Laser Cutting Shop

From precision shim to custom, laser cutting has emerged as a more precise, more affordable, and generally faster alternative to traditional hard tooling.

Mastercut specialise in the precision cutting of thin materials, especially stainless steel. Laser cutting is an effective, relatively low cost method of producing parts and shapes without upfront tooling costs. Because we also cut material using the acid etching (PCM) process we are in a good position to advise on the most appropriate method for your part.

The process

Laser-cutting is accomplished on flat material and in most cases can be formed to suit your requirements. Our precision laser for thin material (0.05mm – 1.5mm stainless) sits on 3 tonnes of granite in a controlled environment to guarantee stability and the highest degree of accuracy. Small parts are often supplied still “tabbed” into the parent sheet to allow for “twisting” out by the customer. This reduces the risk of damage and is usually more convenient.

Benefits

Because it eliminates the need for hard tooling, laser cutting has a low set up cost and a fast turnaround time (next day delivery can be arranged), meaning that prototypes can be provided quickly and at a lower cost to conventional hard tooling.
-A wide variety of shapes can be cut giving you great freedom in your design concepts
-High tolerance accuracy
-Low set up cost
-Design flexibility
-Fast turnaround time (next day service can be arranged)

The Machines

Farley Laserlab

The larger of our lasers is the new Farley Laserlab. Featuring a 1500 x 3000m cutting table, this machine can cut Stainless Steel, Titanium, Aluminium, Copper and Brass. Various thicknesses can be cut from 0.05mm up to 10mm. The advantage of this machine over its rivals is its ability to cut on the thinner end of the scale - Cutting 0.05mm material on a machine like this is extremely rare, especially in Australia. The Farley Laserlab also boasts a high level of accuracy, and the ability to cut fine parts including jewellery. All parts are supplied deburred, ready for use.

Bed Size: 1500x3000mm
Material range: 0.05mm - 10mm
Material Type: Stainless Steel, Titanium, Aluminium, Copper and Brass

LPKF G6080

This is the all new addition to the Mastercut family - LPKF G6080 is the only machine of its type in Australia. Specifically designed to cut solder paste stencils, this machine is the latest in technology, providing the end use with cleaner cut to allow better solder release.

This machine also affers the ability to etch away material, effectively offering our customers step stencils that are manufactured all on the same machine.

Other components that require thin material and tight tolerances are also manufactured on this machine.

Bed Size: 800x600mm
Material range: 0.05mm - 0.9mm
Material Type: Stainless Steel

LPKF SL600

This machine is our older style solder paste stencil laser. As it was succeeded by the G6080, nowadays this is used for shims and precision parts.

The machine is mounted on a bed of granite and is installed in a climate controlled environment, giving this machine a very high level of accuracy.

A great point of this laser is the ability to cut material down to 0.025mm Stainless Steel - A material that Mastercut keep in stock.

Bed Size: 600x600mm
Material range: 0.025mm - 0.9mm
Material Type: Stainless Steel

CO2 Laser

Our most versatile laser cuts a huge range of materials - You can find listed below. Anything from Wood to Plastics and Rubbers.

This laser machine is great for laser marking metals of all kinds and is commonly used for nameplates, barcode labels and any type of asset tag

Mastercut are extremely proficient in aligning work that has been marked (etched or laser marked) then cut out on the larger Farley Laserlab. This alignment is critical in products such as signage and labels where the artwork can stretch close to the edges of  the label.

Bed Size: 850x400mm
Material range: See Below
Material Type: Will mark but not cut through metals - For all other materials please see below

Size limitations

The size of the part is limited only by the size of the cutting bed for the applicable laser. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
What applications is it best for

Tolerances

For most applications, our standard tolerance of +/- 0.5mm would be applied. Small parts precision can be as little as 10 micron, but higher precision affects price as greater care must be taken at every step.

What applications is it best for

We specialise in cutting a broad range of materials to precise tolerance and repeatability for these industries:
-Aerospace
-Automotive
-Electronics
-Engineering
