The Benefits of Laser Cutting Galvanised Steel

Galvanised steel is a form of steel that has been coated with a layer of zinc to protect it from corrosion. The zinc coating not only provides a protective barrier but also adds a touch of aesthetics to the material. This process of galvanisation enhances the durability and longevity of steel, making it a popular choice for various industries.

Galvanised steel that is laser cut can be used in various products across industries including:

Automotive Parts:

Galvanised steel components for vehicles and machinery can be precisely cut using laser cutting technology. It’s ideal for to making parts like frames, exhaust systems, and body panels due to its rust-resistant properties

Architectural Elements:

Laser-cut galvanised steel is commonly used in architectural applications like decorative panels, signage, fencing and outdoor structures like bridges, and lamp posts because of its high resistance to corrosion.

Industrial Equipment:

Steel brackets, frames, and enclosures for industrial machinery can benefit from the precise cuts achieved through laser cutting.

Custom Fabrication:

Galvanised steel opens up possibilities for custom fabrication projects, it can withstand extreme weather conditions and is often used in coastal areas where the air contains high levels of salt, which can accelerate corrosion in other metals.

Laser cutting is a precision cutting method that employs a high-powered laser beam to vaporise or melt material. When it comes to galvanised steel, laser cutting offers numerous benefits, particularly for galvanised steel:


Laser cutting allows for intricate and precise cuts, making it ideal for complex designs and patterns on galvanised steel.

Clean Cuts:

The laser beam produces a clean and smooth edge, reducing the need for further finishing or polishing.


Laser cutting is a fast and efficient process, resulting in quicker turnaround times for manufacturing projects.


It can cut through a variety of thicknesses of galvanised steel, providing flexibility for diverse applications.

Laser cut galvanised components are available in thicknesses between 0.9mm and 5mm, making it an ideal for bending.

Galvanised steel is often preferred over other types of steel for laser cut components due to its enhanced corrosion resistance. The zinc coating on galvanised steel provides a protective layer that helps prevent rust and corrosion, making it more durable and extending the lifespan of the components. Additionally, the coating can help reduce material distortion during laser cutting processes, resulting in more precise and cleaner cuts. This combination of corrosion resistance and improved cutting characteristics makes galvanised steel a popular choice for applications requiring high-quality laser cut components.

At Lasered Components, we source our galvanised steel from reputable suppliers who ensure the best quality. This commitment to quality materials, paired with our state-of-the-art laser cutting technology, allows us to deliver precision-cut components that meet the highest standards of our customers.
