The Challenge

"We have decided to use laser machines, mostly because it's a onetime investment. We used to use stickers, but material costs were high and there was a greater risk of damage. Now, we use the lasers for marking our pallets, and we plan to begin marking our other products with Trotec's laser machines as well" - Peter de Greef - Project Leader, AVK Plastics

The 'Trotec Solution'

"We decided to go with Trotec because we wanted both quality and support. We compared several different laser producers before making our decision, but Trotec's marking quality was by far the best. We had great customer service - not only did they deliver the laser machine, but they helped us with our set-up ideas. In the end, Trotec took care of the integration process. It took some time, but we are extremely happy with the results" - Peter de Greef.
