No Mr Bond, I expect you to Laser Etch

It might look like a giant Laser from the 70s and Gold Finger should be using it on James Bond, but we have the latest in Laser Etching machines here in Wales. Our 3m x 2m machine has the ability to burn the finest of marks or cut through 30mm acrylic with easy!

Used for a wide range of applications from Laser Edge Polishing of CNC works, Etching on Wood and Slate, through to cutting cardboard models and templates – the versatility of our laser adds to the creative capability of all our works.

Having just had its 9 month service – our Laser is as good as new, and cable of producing all your works efficiently and cost effectively.

With a tolerance as small as 0.01mm possible we can really work to the finest details.

With this in mind, we have just produced a range of Mothers Day, Heart Shaped slates with personalised messages on for a trade customer. Using our 3m x 2m size laser meant that they could laser etch 60 at a time, rather than 1 at a time that they had been doing on their small  desktop laser.

We brought economy of scale to their business, which allowed them to produce even more this year and deliver them all on time for that special mothers day present.

Tooling up for a Job!!

No, we are not breaking into the local bank! But we are breaking new ground with our latest Tool heads for our CNC machines. We not have in-stock – wide head clearance tools – this means a more efficient cut and run on your job WHICH will save you money in CNC time!

We are always investing in the latest and best technology which gives our customers an enhanced finish – but we are also acutely aware of the costs of our jobs – so drive these down as low as we can to meet manufacturing demand and cost metrics.

The cutting and finishing of MDF, Ply Wood and softwoods is a big part of our engineering output so we must also ensure that when customer demands, customer gets – and due to our policy of same day turnaround for majority of our works – keeping our word is vital as part of our customer care and support.

With one of the largest stocks of tool heads in Wales, we know that we can provide not only a quality finish – time after time – but also at a cost the meets your needs.

Swansea City NEON Signs

Our Local Club – A Real Honour

Having been fans of the Swans all our lives, it was a real pleasure to have worked with the Commercial Department to design and create a special LED NEON to celebrate the historic double win over Cardiff City in the 2021/22 season..

Wanting to create that special piece of art that could live in a supporters home, man cave or even a commercial bar was top of the list for an item to make an impact!

From initial design concepts through to signed off artwork by the Graphic Design Team at Swansea City, each step of the process had the fan in mind, and what they would love to see and own.

Made from 100% recycled plastics and the sign itself is 100% recyclable – having green credentials and a low onward carbon footprint was a big deciding factor for the club.
