When the GCI Group opened their doors on the gold coast for the first time over 14 years ago, our stated goal was to offer the best laser cutting service available. Bar none.
Our finished products and legion of delighted clients are proof that we have done a great job of achieving this goal.
The super-precise nature of our state-of-the-art lasers enables us to accurately cut virtually any shape or any sized component regardless of how complex it may initially appear. It all comes down to experience, innovation, and the ability to see the big picture.
We have two in house laser departments, the first being 2D laser cutting of flat sheet. The second being our dedicated tube laser, capable of the following in stainless steel, mild steel and aluminium:
- Tube Laser cutting
- RHS laser cutting
- SHS Laser cutting
- Angle Laser cutting
- PFC Laser cutting
- Extrusion Laser cutting
This dedicated 6 axis laser cutting machine also has the ability to countersink holes, bevel cut, weld prep & more!
Many of the laser cut parts that GCI process then go on to be powder coated or painted. Best practice as acknowledged in AS2312.2:2014 states that sharp edges must be removed to ensure coating adhesion. The GCI Group have invested in the LISMAC edge rounding machine to cater for this need.
The LISMAC brand dates back to 1979 and since its 2003 release of sheet metal processing tools, the company has set the bench mark for edge rounding machinery.
The GCI group started out servicing the gold coast primarily for laser cutting, as the company grew we found ourselves providing laser cutting services to Brisbane based clients and beyond. GCI’s new location in the northern end of Yatala is perfect for easy access to clients from Brisbane, gold coast and inland to Toowoomba. Being so close to major motorways, rail and port facilities we are also capable of supplying large volume national laser cutting contracts.
GCI Group have made a significant investment in new technology & machinery to ensure we are at the forefront of the laser cutting industry, let us introduce the STOPA automated storage system and the new Trumpf 8KW fibre laser. This new equipment has more than doubled the laser cutting capacity of the GCI group! We now have automated sheet metal storage connected to our 4x flat bed laser cutting machines.
We believe that pre-production planning is just as important as post-production finessing. If parts fit together seamlessly, then even the most complex welding operations become a whole lot easier.
