AllSigns heads in the right direction with Trotec laser
An investment in a Trotec laser has enabled the Bristol-based sign company, AllSigns Visual Communication to diversify its product portfolio and bring laser cutting in-house.
AllSigns, which manufactures bespoke signage and decorative artwork for corporate environments, continually invests in new technology and the purchase of the Speedy 400 laser cutter has enabled it to respond more quickly to customer demands.
Graham Wood, Managing Director at AllSigns explained: “While we previously outsourced our laser cutting work, the acquisition of the Speedy 400 has provided us with the control required to work to tight deadlines.
“We are now able to create prototypes and samples for our clients and we’ve also significantly increased our production capabilities too. From cutting individual lettering for signs to producing completed displays, our laser plays an important part in our overall production process.”
The addition of the Trotec laser cutter has also improved efficiency by eliminating time consuming and costly processes.
Graham continued: “The Speedy laser has improved our workflow and made us much more efficient as a result. Previously, we would have to CNC route acrylic letters and flame polish the edges to achieve a clean finish. However, the Speedy 400’s laser cut achieves a flame polished edge without the need for any additional processes, thus saving us both production time and money.”
During the decision-making process, Graham and his team visited Trotec’s Bristol showroom where they received a full demonstration on the laser and a complete overview of the possible applications.
Graham added: “The demonstration opened our eyes to what else we could do with a laser, so right from the first meeting we’ve felt supported by Trotec and have since been able to rely upon its after-sales support whenever we have needed it. I really cannot fault our Trotec experience.”
The Speedy 400 is a flatbed laser that offers a bed size of 1000mm x 610mm, high-speed processing up to 3.55m/sec and a superior product build for dust protection, thus making it a versatile option for integration into production lines where cutting, engraving and marking of materials, parts or components is required.
