Materials – Mild Steel


We have the ability to laser cut Mild Steel Sheet metal in thicknesses between 0.7mm and 25mm.

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon. The carbon provides extra strength and fracture resistance in comparison to pure iron. These characteristics, coupled with its comparatively low cost make it popular in uses relating to construction, infrastructure, tools, transport, and general engineering.

Mild Steel has a carbon content of between 0.16% and 0.29%. This gives it a higher melting point, relative to higher carbon steel. The higher melting point makes mild steel more ductile meaning that is particularly suitable for drilling, welding, forging, cutting, and is easy to fabricate.

We laser cut steel in these grades


Cold Rolled, often referred to as Cold Reduced or simply CR, refers to the method of processing used to create these sheets. Using this method results in a smoother surface and a fine finish. This makes it a good painting surface. Cold rolling material also improves the tolerances of the sheet metal.

The more exact tolerances combined with the good surface finish makes CR4 steel ideal for projects where precision and quality are essential.  Some typical uses for CR4 laser cut components include: interior and exterior automobile parts; appliance parts including highly formable parts; parts requiring good dent resistance; computer-cabinet hardware; metal furniture; and light industrial applications, amongst many more.

Stocked Thickness Availability: 0.9mm, 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm.
