Lasercut London's main applications include protoyping, design and processing a wide range of materials, including automotive fabrics, woods and awards. Often multiple applications are processed in the same day.
Initially Lasercut London were using a CO2 laser cutter for their production, alongside a range of other tools including printing machines, 3D printers and CNC machines. With a bed size of 609 x 457 and only a single choice of engraving table, Chris found that the machine was quite limiting as his business started to grow.
Typically, jobs could take up to three days to process, which when working with a large client base was far from ideal. Alongside this, the laser supplier operated through a distributor in the UK, which was problematic when issues arose. Chris would usually have to wait a while to receive a response to his enquiry, often only receiving an email.
These problems were a cause of frustration for Chris who was keen to enable his business to develop and further its potential. During a visit to the Trophex exhibition, Chris spoke to Trotec to try to find whether there was a better partner for his business than his existing laser supplier.
