Brass ½ Hard – up to 6mm


General Cutting Tolerance

  • >3mm – +/-0.1mm
  • 3-6mm – +/-0.2mm

Here at Subcon Laser, one of the materials we deal with most frequently is half hard brass (or brass ½ hard, as you may commonly see it written down). Many of our customers – both regular and first time ones – come to us for our expert laser cutting services on half hard brass. This is a material which is used very often for hinges on doors and cabinets, and is used widely used throughout many industries.

Half hard brass has superb cold forming qualities, which is one of the reasons it is so versatile and used for so many different things. It can be lightly drawn and stamped, and it is the ideal material for when some stiffness is needed whilst deep drawing and severe forming isn’t required.

The general cutting tolerances when we work with half hard brass is as follows… When the piece of half hard brass we’re working with is less than 3mm in thickness, there is generally a tolerance of 0.1mm. This means that the cut will only ever be plus or minus a tenth of a millimetre – which is extremely impressive and accurate. When the half hard brass is between 3mm and 6mm in thickness, the tolerance is 0.2mm, which again is a figure we are extremely proud of here at Subcon Laser, as it demonstrates our commitment to accuracy and precision.

We pride ourselves on the fantastic laser cutting services we provide, and are confident that our work speaks for itself. We believe that we are one of the finest laser cutting companies in the UK, and we intend to keep it that way.
