Doncaster Laser Logistics Ltd has been manufacturing laser cut components for a wide range of industries including marine, nuclear, automotive, railway and catering since 1997. Founded by Managing Director Earl Pinnock and Production Director Darren Stones, the company has expanded rapidly, recently moving to larger premises in Carcroft, near Doncaster.

As a subcontractor, the company specialises in short runs of components, between 0.5 and 20 mm thick, in mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium and Perspex. Laser cutting lends itself particularly well to low volume manufacture, allowing customers to source prototype and bespoke parts at a competitive cost.

The company has five laser machines on its Carcroft site and a further three at a sister company. Earl Pinnock explained his reasons for choosing a pre-owned LVD Axel 3015 from World Machinery (Shropshire) Ltd. “One of our existing lasers was reaching the end of its useful life and we needed a new machine to maintain production levels. At the same time we wanted to increase capacity and reduce costs.”
