Jo was shown the Speedy laser machines which are available in a variety of bed sizes and can be used to produce a wide range of applications, including laser engraving and cutting woods, plastics, films and more. The advantages of speed and ease of use were instantly recognised by Jo who soon purchased an ex-demonstration Speedy 100 laser.
Less than a year later, Rocket and Fox were again ready to expand their arsenal of lasers. Having experienced the reliability, robustness and speed of the Speedy 100, Jo opted to add a Speedy 300 to the Rocket and Fox workshop. The larger bed size of the Speedy 300 and the ability to process laser jobs simultaneously enabled Rocket and Fox to produce even more products in a shorter time. With the Speedy machines operating five times faster than their previous laser, Rocket and Fox increased production efficiency without adding overheads as the same team member can operate both machines.
Laser technology has also opened new business avenues for Rocket and Fox, enabling the business to diversify and offer laser cutting and engraving services for similar companies who do not have the facility in-house. Example applications have included card pockets for wedding invites, leather shapes and acrylic Christmas decorations.
