Jim's first laser machine was a second-hand Trotec system, which he purchased to expand his business and diversify his product offerings.
After having his laser for several years, Jim needed a more reliable machine and took the step to invest in a brand new Speedy 300. Since purchasing in his lasers, Jim has been able to make products that are either not achievable by hand or would be too time-consuming to be cost-effective.
The processing capabilities of laser technology have allowed Jim to take on orders reaching beyond wood. Jim's Trotec's allowed him to process acrylic and slate, and fulfill his long-term goals for Jimagination, taking custom orders for clients.
Despite the initial costs of laser technology, Jim hasn't second guess purchasing his second user system. Since the purchase of his Speedy 300, Jim has had his first laser refurbished and now has two lasers working to create his products.
Jim's investment in laser technology has paid off for Jimagination in the four years since he first purchased his Trotec machine. His business has benefited even further in that Jim was able to expand his previously cramped studio, making it a space for clients to visit.
