FabCafe BCN aims to provide a thriving environment for technological innovation among companies and entrepreneurs. Their Speedy 400 flexx laser engraving machine makes an enormous contribution here thanks to its speed, absolute flexibility and ease of use.
Speedy 400 flexx
The FabCafe concept was born in Tokyo as a digital fabrication space inside a coffee shop with the aim of bringing closer the prototyping process and of making technologies visible to all citizens. People of all ages and disciplines can meet and fabricate with digital tools what they previously thought impossible, in a creative and synergistic environment while enjoying a coffee and a snack.
"Trotec supports us in the smooth operation of our Speedy and makes us aware of new possibilities. We have also worked together during the lockdown to do our bit in the fight against Covid."
At FabCafe, there are two types of service modalities. Anyone can request a laser service and then wait in the coffee area till the job is done. Everyone with a membership fee has access to the co-working area and the different machines that are offered at the FabLab area. The most common applications are the creation of architectural models, customization of objects by engraving them with logos or acronyms and prototypes of devices. To be able to offer all these applications to its customers, FabCafe BCN was looking for a high quality and flexible laser system as well as a reliable partner behind the machine.
David Tena, CEO at FabCafe BCN, contacted Trotec to see what equipment options would best suit his project. Following a detailed analysis, he chose the Speedy 400 flexx laser engraving machine. This machine combines a CO2 and a fibre laser source, perfectly meeting the different needs of FabCafe's customers.
"Trotec also sells materials such as acrylics and woods that we use the most within the FabCafé, so it's great to have a 360° supplier."
