TAP successfully adds additional service thanks to Speedy 360

About TAP

The name already says it all, Tourné Aluminium Products was originally a company that processed and engraved aluminium. The company has since grown into a successful (mainly) metal processing company. Thanks to the purchase of the Speedy 360, the company was able to add an extra component to their services: 'Laser engraving'. 

Tourné Aluminum Products or TAP in short was founded in 1989 as a primarily metal processing company. They manufacture lettering in a variety of materials and applications, from aluminum to stainless steel and from wood to acrylic. TAP's target customers are the funeral industry, construction companies, artists and corporate gift sellers.

The emergence of a new service at TAP

The decision to acquire a laser machine was motivated by the company's existing services, which included molding, milling, and water cutting. The need to expand their service offerings led them to consider laser engraving, driven by a growing demand for this service, particularly from clients in the funeral industry. 
Prior to acquiring their laser machine, TAP used to subcontract their laser engraving services to an external partner. By purchasing the Speedy 360 laser machine, they can now realize this additional service in-house.
The Speedy 360 has furthermore opened up new opportunities for the metalworking company. Director Christian Moermans highlights the machine's versatility and daily usage. He explains, "We operate with small production runs, so the usage can range from handling individual products to larger production jobs. Each day is different."

Good advice and quality

According to the director, the reason for choosing Trotec Laser is the good service offered at Trotec and the quality of the laser machines. "If we experience a breakdown or want to work with a new product, we send an email to Trotec and get good advice right away," says Mr. Moermans. The service is therefore really a great added value for Christian. 
The Speedy 360 is used for such purposes as engraving memorial plaques, creating logos for furniture production, engraving work for corporate gifts, engraving work for applying a brass logo in wood, and many more. The machine delivers high quality results at high speed and is thus widely used at TAP and relieves the staff in various areas.

Easier workflow thanks to Ruby®

It is also thanks to Trotec's laser software Ruby® that the additional service “laser engraving" runs so well at TAP. The usability is great and it is easy to find one's way around the software.
"The biggest advantage of Trotec's Ruby® software is the overall package, which is tailored to the laser machine, eliminating the need to work through numerous other software packages to get a workable file. We really like Ruby®."

"We use stainless steel, TroLase Metallic and various types of wood. Most of the materials we supply to customers are purchased through Trotec. The remainder is supplied by the customers themselves."
