Upgrading Plasma CNC Machine


Please click here to view full RFQ




JL Engineering & Fabrication ltd was founded in October 2018, ever since we started I have strived to grow the business taking on new challenges and finding new areas in the engineering market. When we bought our first plasma CNC we found that it not only saves us money in our own projects by not out sourcing profiling, but also we could provide it as a service going forward. I am now at the point where we are providing it as a service but the accuracy of our current machine does not meet allot of customers requirements.




Our requirements for the machine we are looking to buy are as follows.

  • Accurate and repeatability
  • Good software easy to use and efficient.
  • Reliable enough to use as a production machine, i.e. Running the machine for long amount of hours.
  • Good delivery time scales
  • Warranty and future support
  • Training


Deliverable Timescale

We expect the project to commence no later than 24th of February 2023 and to be completed by 5th March 2023
