Finding a self-sufficient solution
Green Lab produce a number of items within the lab, including essential items for their work environment including lighting rigs, signage, enclosures and mounting boards for agricultural electronic projects.
Andrew wanted to make the lab self-sufficient and to give members the flexibility required to to be creative and to prototype their designs, as well as producing internal applications for the lab.
Andrew knew that the lab needed a solution which would not only help the lab to achieve these goals, but also to negated the need to purchase products off the shelf. The ability to bring production work in house was also a focus, as outsourcing was not cost effective.
It was these factors which lead to Andrew looking into a laser machine as a potential solution.
