As to why andMade.kitasando selected the Trotec brand to meet its needs, Ms. Mihoko Arao of the FURUTACHI PROJECT, who also serves as Chief Manager of andMade, offered the following: “Speaking personally, when I think of laser cutters, I think of Trotec. Based on my own experiences of having used Trotec laser cutters at other fabrication facilities as well, when making our own equipment selection, there was peace-of-mind in that I knew of the brand’s combination of safety and processing speed.”
Almost 100% of its membership joined andMade.kitasando due to their desire to fabricate items of apparel. Thus, while they wanted the ability to process leather-based materials in numerous ways, the actual breakdown of how the Trotec Speedy 360 has been used is for textiles (40%), leathers (30%), acrylics (10%) and other materials (20%). Making use of such inputs, the laser cutter is deployed to help create clothes and fabricate fashion accessories.
