We laser cut steel sheet in thicknesses between 0.7mm and 25mm
Steel is made up of carbon and iron, with much more iron than carbon. It contains a low amount of carbon making it very strong, with a high resistance to breakage. Mild steel, as opposed to higher carbon steels, is quite malleable, even when cold, meaning it has high tensile and impact strength compared to higher carbon steels which usually shatter or crack under stress, while mild steel bends or deforms.
Mild steel is widely used in construction because it can be easily machined compared to harder steels and is also easy to weld, both to itself and to other types of steel. It takes on a nice finish and is polishable. It cannot be hardened through heat treatment processes whereas higher carbon steels can.

We laser cut steel in these grades
Cold Rolled Steel, often abbreviated as CR or CRS, is known for being extremely ductile. Additionally, it is formable for moderate draw applications, as well as being non-shrinking and non-creeping at ambient temperatures. Cold Rolled Steel is known for its ability to hold tight tolerances and retain few surface imperfections.
In 3mm and below this is the best finish mild steel product and is always nitrogen cut giving you a clean and oxide free edge ready for welding or painting.
Applications for CR4 Steel
CR4 is ideal for use in many home appliances and metal furniture. Metal filing cabinets and school lockers are commonly made of this grade of mild steel. In construction, Cold Rolled Steel is a common material for building steel sheds, industrial buildings, and garages.
S275 is a low carbon steel. Low carbon steels are classified by having less than 0.3% carbon by weight. The low carbon content prevents heat treatment from having much of an effect, meaning that S275 steel is easily machined, welded, and formed, making it extremely useful as a general-purpose steel.
S275 steel usually has small amounts of other alloying elements, including manganese, sulphur, phosphorus, and silicon. These additional elements influence the metal’s strength, ductility, corrosion resistance, and machinability. Since S275 does not contain large amounts of nickel or chromium, it lacks corrosion resistance.
Our S275JR Material from 4mm to 10mm is pickled and oiled as standard giving you the best quality finish for your parts. All parts cut in 6mm and below are nitrogen cut to give you a clean, oxide free finish, ready for welding or painting.
Applications for S275 Steel
S275 steel is used in many industries for a variety of applications because of its relatively low cost. The mechanical properties of S275 steel make it particularly suited to structural applications. Many bridges and buildings are constructed with S275 steel because of its high strength and toughness. S275 steel is also used for components in the automotive, construction, heavy equipment, oil and gas industries.
All of our S355 material is certified to JR and J2 as standard and all material certificates are available at any time to you.
Applications for S355 Steel
S355 is widely used in structural fabrication. Typical applications include: Structural steel works, bridge components, offshore structures components, power plants, mining and earth-moving equipment.
