CNC cut octopus and plates

We’ve been busy CNC plasma cutting out a variety of parts.  Everything from two 1/8″ 304 stainless steel CNC cut octopus to 3/8″ and 1/2″ structural plates and lifting rings to supply local fabricators.

The structural components are easy, just need to have the dross removed and wiped clean.  The octopus’ in this photo came right off the table.  So they need a few pieces to be knocked out, all the dross removed from the backside and then they can be lightly orbital sanded across the face of the part.  Then they will be carefully packaged and sent off to the customer in Victoria, BC.

It’s always interesting going from mechanical/structural parts that require the use of thick material to delicate artsy pieces that need to have a very high visual appeal when completed.  We have no problem switching tasks, as all these pieces were cut in a span of an hour, going from fine detailed work to high power, slow cut speed tight tolerance work.  We have all the necessary tools in house to make it happen.

For more info about our CNC cutting services, please take a look at our CNC cutting page and don’t hesitate to contact us for a quote.  We operate our shop as lean as possible so our material is normally 1-2 days away if we don’t already have it in stock.  We do keep a variety of large sheets in stock that our more frequent customers need access to.
