I am a passionate laser technology engineer, who has worked in the industry for many years. My wife and I want to start our own laser manufacturing business, to supply the UK economy with affordable Fiber, UV, CO2 and Green marking, engraving and cutting lasers.
I have worked for world leaders in the laser technology industry, and have been head hunted twice for my skill set in the last 18 months.
There is a great need for local manufacturing in this area, as there are more and more people starting their own online engraving businesses, manufacturers are looking at lower cost traceability part marking solutions due to current economic times. There are many companies who supply lasers in the UK, however the majority supply systems at extremely high prices, which makes affordability difficult and this is where we can make in roads.
The other side to the coin is, the majority of the lasers supplied in the UK, are from China, and along with that comes poor manufacturing practice, components and support, and non of these systems people buy meet EU safety standards.
There are many uses for lasers, from part marking metal, engraving jewellery, glass, wood, plastic and more.
I pride myself on producing high quality work with a no cut corners attitude. One of my favorite things about lasers, is the look of excitement on a customers face when they see how it works.
The money raised will be used setup an office and workshop, tools, manufacturing equipment, stock and a vehicle for visiting customers to conduct demonstrations.
