C & L Laser Cutting
Fact: DCS PRINTOVATORS™ DO MORE with their Direct Jet UV LED printers. They develop more applications, produce more products and generate more profits.
In business since 1979, C & L Laser Cutting of Great Britain supplies a huge range of 3mm (.12") thick acrylic shapes, discs, clock faces and tokens.
Back in 2012, the company purchased a Direct Jet 1024UV to accurately place required prints on acrylic material prior to laser cutting the individual pieces. "Accuracy was one of the key features for us," says Cliff Smith, Director.
More than small runs or small-batch custom items, C & L Laser Cutting consistently fulfills large volume orders. "At the time of our research and testing, this machine had the best print quality that I could find, and it was quicker than other models we looked at," Smith says. "That speed helps us considerably on large-volume jobs."
Additionally, C & L Laser Cutting is no different than many of DCS's customers in that they quickly realized that they can use their Direct Jet UV LED printer for many more applications than they originally thought.
"We originally bought the machine to increase our range of colour clock dials and get away from screen printing," Smith says. "Since our purchase, we have found hundreds of other products that we can make. Custom printing has become as big a part of our market as the clocks are."
