To help them select the optimal laser for their requirements, Brissco extensively tested their materials using previous customer files as the basis of the work to ensure that the machine would be able to deliver the optimal results. Their experience at Trotec's showroom coupled with the advice given by their area manager gave the team at Brissco confidence that a Trotec laser was the right fit for their business, opting for a Speedy 400 laser cutter.
Since the laser was installed, it has been the perfect machine to work alongside the existing production equipment, adding a fast and accurate cutting option to Brissco's production capabilities. The laser has also allowed Brissco to cut intricate shapes at a tighter tolerance, especially when working with acrylic, while removing the need to polish the finished workpieces, leading to some significant time and cost savings when compared to the cnc method.
Another benefit that Brissco has found with the new laser cutter is the ability to store settings for their own materials within Trotec's JobControl software. This serves to ensure the same great standard of work and consistent results every time.
Reflecting on the purchase, the Brissco team is fully satisfied with the Trotec purchase. From their initial demo through to aftersales customer service and beyond, the team have felt wholly supported by Trotec.
