Laser Cutting for Aluminium

We handle aluminium in all grades, as well as numerous aluminium alloys, with this material offering suitability for our in-house laser cutting operations, including fibre and C02 laser cutting. We can also work with patterned aluminium, including 5 Bar Treadplate, Stucco, Hammered, and Checkmate.

Our time served abilities and expertise regarding a wide range of materials ensures Subcon Laser adheres to our customers’ specification requirements every time – no matter the complexity of your project. We offer complete flexibility in our high spec service to ensure we achieve this on time and on budget. 

  • Tolerances from +/-0.12mm to 0.5mm, depending on material thickness.
  • Aluminium thickness from 0.5mm to 40.0mm.
  • Handling material up to 4000mm x 2000mm.

Our laser cutting service is complemented by secondary operations and a range of finishes for aluminium sheet and plate. From bending and bevelling to deburring and welding, we provide a comprehensive service with which to complete your manufacturing project. 

Aluminium Grades

Subcon Laser works with a variety of aluminium grades, as listed below. If you cannot see your grade listed, we are still able to source and cut it for you, and we encourage our customers to contact us with their preferred grade and requirements.

1000 series is the purest aluminium series, with an aluminium content of 99% as a minimum. Within this series, we offer both 1050 and 1200 grade, offering high corrosion resistance and thermal and electrical conductivity.

We also commonly work with grades 2014 and 3003, as well as the 5000 series and 6000 series.

Within the 5000 series, we handle both 5251 and 5083. The 5000 series is alloyed with magnesium, making it suitable for corrosive environments.

We further handle grade 6082 within the 6000 series. This grade offers increased strength, ensuring performance in structural applications and corrosion resistance in outdoor spaces.


Aluminium can be finished with anodising, polishing, and powder coating amongst other finishes, if required by your project. 

Whether polishing or powder coating to enhance aesthetic appeal, or anodising to achieve greater protection, Subcon Laser ensures that your aluminium parts are correctly prepared for their application.

    It gives me great pleasure to be able to be involved in creating a testimonial for Subcon Laser for the outstanding service they have given me over the past 10 years. The main point of contact for me would be Tom Mongan, who is the general manager at the organisation and whom as I understand has been at the company for over 20 years.

    Buyer - Pressing Company

    As one of the longest established laser cutting companies within the UK with a high staff retention ratio, it comes as no surprise that the skill, knowledge and technical ability of their staff is really what sets them apart from their peers. One also has to mention their investment strategy in the very latest laser technology because this also sets them apart from a lot of companies as they are able to compete at every level.
