How to speed up your laser cutting order

We are specialists in our field, we have a great system and team in place, so we average a four day lead time on our laser cutting orders. Many of our customers work on time critical projects, so our accurate lead times and speed of turnaround are a major reason why we are often chosen as regular supply partners.

While the main responsibility is with us to process and deliver your order promptly, there are things that you can do when placing your laser cutting order to assist us in processing your components quickly.


A well composed enquiry is the basis of quickly processing your laser cutting order. For all orders we need:

CAD icon

CAD Drawings

We can process drawings in DWG, DXF or NC format

Why choose laser cutting? - edge quality


The material(s) you require, thickness, grade and finish plus grain orientation if applicable

Complex shapes

How Many?

The number of each component you require

Delivery location

Delivery Address

Delivery address or collection details

Please set out the order information clearly and in one place, in the body of your enquiry email is a good place, perhaps even in a table format for extra clarity if there are several different components. Make sure that it is clear which order details apply to which component drawing.

You can find information about the materials, grades and finishes that we supply and laser cut in our materials section.

Your Drawings

We prefer to be supplied with drawings for laser cutting orders. We can draw simple shapes for you, but this will increase the time it takes to process your order.


It might not always be possible, but if you supply us with one file with all of the required components on instead of each component as a separate file, we can process your drawings much more quickly.


The accuracy of your drawings is important, please take the time to check them before sending them to us. Our auditors will check them for you, but if they find anything that looks wrong or is ambiguous, a member of our sales team will be in contact with you to clarify and this will add to your lead time.

For more information please see our article about how to prepare your drawings.


If you are a new customer, you will be required to pay in advance. The quicker you pay, the sooner your laser cutting order will be on its way to you!


Even with the most straightforward laser cutting order, there will be a couple of emails back and forth to confirm details. The quicker you are to respond, the sooner your components will be processed.
