As a large institution in the Hanseatic and university city of Rostock, the protestant Michaelshof Foundation is one of the oldest social institutions in the city and surrounding area.
The Michaelwerk division includes workshops, support groups and the vocational training area for disabled people, with more than 600 handicapped people working and learning there. Their roles primarily include the laundry, carpentry, assembly, mailing, gardening, kitchen, and stamp and sign production departments.
Customers include courts, colleges and universities, local authorities, ministries and banks alongside private individuals.
Initially, stamp production used the photopolymer process, which did not produce satisfactory results, which led to an alternative production technology being sought.
The close relationship with the stamp supplier Trodat led to Trotec Laser almost 10 years ago. It quickly became apparent that stamp production with the laser engraving machine optimally covered the company's requirements.
The quality of the laser engraving machine and products produced with it, combined with the service and high quality materials, have motivated us to purchase another laser from Trotec.
Today, stamps at Michaelwerk are set using the CorelDraw graphics program, then laser engraved and cut on a Speedy 300 and a Speedy 100 laser engraving machine. once completed they are glued to the stamp body. With laser even the finest details can now be engraved on the text plate.
The JobControl laser software supports this production, such as with an automated process and the "bar function".
At the same time, the laser enables the production of signs or the expansion of the range of laser engraving services.
Stamp rubber, automatic stamping machines, laser material and laser engraving machines - all from a single source - that is convincing in handling.
