Sheet metal, laser cut

Post by EindhovenCUSTOMS » Jul 06 2020 2:27pm

Hello
I had a look at this sub forum and i was not able to find what i am struggling to find.
I have some sheet metal parts designed but I can only find places to order them as a business.
I found a service called OSH CUT that is in the USA but in europe i am not able to find any supplier for laser cut, sheet metal designs.
The only quotation I was able to get was from 3D hubs and it costs over 150 euro for 2 components. Both about 200x200mm, one is 2mm thick stainless steel the other is 8mm thick aluminum 5000 series. I think this price is not acceptable for such small components.
Any alternative that is able to ship to Netherlands is helping.

Eindhoven the tech capitol of the Netherlands should have plenty companies that can laser cut metal!
Find a few close to you and call them. Explain your problem of ordering as a private person and ask if they will help you if you pay up front. Best is to actually visit a company near you and talk to them personally.
To get a ball park quote for the going rate use www.plaatweb.nl and upload the parts you need to have cut. Only upload the closed line drawing of the part itself.
