Datum Alloys fully automated, bespoke coil to part precision laser cutting process with auto stacking, greatly increases the speed and efficiency of the manufacturing process and reduces the cost for our customers. We laser cut, thin, high-precision metal parts from coil or sheet. Our laser cut, custom metal components are made to short lead times and tight tolerances.
Our process produces scratch free, precision components. Laser cut, thin metal parts are a fast, efficient method of producing components as part of a manufacturing operation or prototype and development process.
Datum’s precision component manufacturing produces thin stainless-steel parts from 0.05mm up to 0.5mm thick. We can also micro laser cut other alloys such as Aluminium, Alloy 42, Nickel coated steel and Copper. Datum laser cut components are used in a wide variety of manufacturing applications, custom shims, micro spacers, battery applications, tags, connectors, marine industry, and technology companies.
We specialise in prototype laser cutting, precision stainless-steel components and stainless-steel substrates, offering companies the perfect solution for R&D and prototyping. Datum will turn your ideas into reality and help guide you through the development process and scale up to manufacturing quantities either on our laser or stamped part.
Key features include:
We produce components with 3D features by micromachining; a second operation carried out after laser cutting that produces microscale features on your components. These processes together give you the precision and repeatability of laser cutting and micromachining and the flexibility of etching.
