Our Secondary Operations

Subcon Laser provides the following secondary operations to underpin our laser cutting projects.


We undertake forming of sheet metal on press brakes, creating your desired shape with precision bends.

Our initial CAD processing means we adhere to designs with exacting accuracy and repeatability across batches.

Drilling and Tapping

Subcon Laser’s drilling and tapping services are used to create both smooth and threaded holes in workpieces through means of drilling, tapping and threading. Tapping range of M2 to M27 Threads available on request.

For applications requiring fasteners and additional assembly solutions, our drilling service places highly accurate holes within your laser cut components.


Subcon Laser offers countersinking services, allowing fasteners to sit flush within the workpiece, resulting in an integrated finish.

Our precision service ensures countersunk holes are produced to the exact angled contours of fasteners.

CNC Machining

Our CNC machining services include vertical milling and turning operations, utilising quality custom tooling for production to unique requirements.

Computer Numerical Controlled machinery allows us to follow CAD designs for complete adherence to specification. 


Subcon Laser provides a range of welding services, including MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas), projection welding, and small fabrication welding.

Our welding department ensures components are expertly joined for performance in their application.

Laser Bevel Cutting

We can further carry out bevelling operations, also known as weld preps, performed on Trumpf machinery with EdgeLine. Trumpf EdgeLine enables us to laser cut bevels, chamfers, indentations, and rounded edges on parts.


Our vibro-deburring service ensures component edges are smooth and free from imperfections such as burrs, sharp edges, and fins.

On request, we can achieve a quality finish for all sized parts with our deburring services.

    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.
