How laser cutting has evolved over the years

Laser cutting services are an essential for several industries in the UK. It is a process for cutting parts and components at incredible speed with maximum accuracy. At Seward Precision we have been operating as a laser cutting company for many years and have seen incredible growth as a company, particularly over the last 10 years. We have seen and experienced first-hand the advances of laser technology.

In 1960, the first working laser was described as “a solution looking for a problem”. People realised that the discovery had potential but the opportunities to use it weren’t many. A lot of experiments were made, trying to find a way to make the process better, faster, safer, and more precise.

Over the years, and after much research and experimenting, the laser machine tool slowly evolved.

A lot of incredible developments and advancements in techniques were also made during the 90s. During this time, laser cutting companies were able to use a wide range of materials, including ceramics, composites, metals, and plastics. Also during this decade, laser cutting standards were raised and a number of new technologies were created, including the semiconductor laser, the quantum dot laser, the pulsed atom laser and the gallium-nitride laser.

Since the 2000s, there have been a number of impressive developments to increase the accuracy of laser cutting. This was massively important in order to establish laser cutting as what it is today, because precision and perfect accuracy are 2 of the main benefits of this technology.

At Seward Precision, we are Laser Cutting Specialists, and provide Laser Cutting Services. Our state-of-the-art technology and automated equipment give us continuous production capability. Our machines can run 24/7. This allows us to be very flexible with a good turnaround time.

We can achieve intricate designs in many different materials, always keeping a high level of quality. Quality is one of the most important factors for us and our clients. We guarantee that the end product is exactly what has been ordered.
