Since their first two Trotec Speedy 100s were installed in July 2016, Dust and Things Ltd. has reached new levels of success. Immediatley impressed with the capabilities of the machines, Mike and Sian purchased a further machine which was installed in November of the same year. As of 2018, the company now operates 8 Speedy 100 lasers in tandem to create a wide range of giftware.
The decision to expand their Trotec arsenal was made as the Speedy 100 could personalise products in half the time of their previous laser cutter with superior results. The machine capabilities are particularly noticeable during busy periods such as Christmas, allowing the staff to work more efficiently while negating the requirement to hire temporary staff to cover the workload.
As with any busy production environment, efficiency is key for Dust and Things Ltd. Although they don't use Trotec materials, the JobControl laser software allows material settings to be stored for the products used, making processing repeat jobs a fast and efficient process.
Throughout their Trotec journey, the team at Dust and Things Ltd. have felt fully supported by Trotec. Special mention was given to Trotec's engineers and the machine installation. During the machine set up, the engineers made sure that the staff were comfortable with the basics of laser processing and machine maintenance as well as providing additional training on the machines such as tips and tricks to streamline processes and achieve optimal results.
