The use of composite materials is increasing significantly in UK manufacturing, due to the advantages they offer in terms of light weight, high strength and corrosion resistance.  Some challenges exist however, in the profiling of intricate geometry with acceptable quality. Traditional methods of machining, for example routing and shearing, can cause de-lamination of the material and loose fibres can remain at the edges which may cause problems of contamination.

Tec Systems Limited have developed a flatbed laser cutting machine which offers an ideal solution for laser cutting of composites such as carbon fibre reinforced plastics, PEEK and other similar materials.
