The laser cutting and engraving specialists successfully produced intricate laser cut mild steel parts for the ornate five metre dome following investment in innovative technology.
Cutting Technologies hold an established relationship with the designers and producers of the dramatic centrepiece – bespoke one-stop lighting service providers, Northern Lights.
Previously, competition for mild steel jobs such as these could be hard, but investment in a new state of the art £500,000 Bystronic Bysprint Fiber Laser has speeded up Cutting Technologies’ production time and improved efficiency, leading to more competitive pricing.
The new machine can also cut non-ferrous metals such as brass and copper much quicker and at a higher quality in a wider range of thicknesses.
Northern Lights work on projects for big name brands throughout the hospitality sector such as Hilton Hotels, Costa Coffee, Pizza Express and Jamie Oliver’s restaurants.
They are currently exporting to global markets including Dubai and Moscow.
Lee Stone, procurement manager of Northern Lights said:
“I’ve always been really impressed with Cutting Technologies. It’s a pleasure working with them as the turnaround time is brilliant and the quality is always great.
“The new machine means they can offer us even more than before.
“We’re looking forward to working with them again on future projects and exploring what the new machine can do.”
Jane, director at Cutting Technologies said:
“It’s always rewarding to see the final results of the work we do with our machinery and technology.
“Our portfolio of work ranges massively – from beer pump clips to large scale wall engravings to laser cut parts for a multitude of engineering purposes – but each project is unique and exciting and this was no exception.
“It’s important to keep investing in technology and new machines to help us enhance our current capabilities as well as establishing ourselves throughout different markets.
“This year is the time to go for growth and with our new investment, we’re perfectly positioned to make that happen.”
