Our comprehensive production capabilities are suitable for all types of metallic materials, enabling us to produce a range of laser cut parts and components from sheet and plate metal as well as box section and tube.

When undertaking laser cutting with Subcon Laser, our friendly team is on hand to advise and guide you throughout your project, no matter the stage it’s at. 

Our extensive expertise coupled with time served abilities are the result of investment into the latest equipment and continuous innovation across all departments, ensuring we can provide the optimal solution for your production process.

This begins with a detailed consultation with our team; during these initial stages, we utilise CAD, provided either by the client or created from our reverse engineering capabilities, to determine the most feasible and efficient production methods for your design. 

Following initial processing, we can further provide secondary operations, utilising CAM/CNC technology for complete production through to fabrication, as well as a number of finishing options.
