Making a Splash with our new Digital Cutter

Last year we purchased a digital cutter and flatbed printer from AG/CAD, and their software KASEMAKE CAD that would enable us to manufacture our products in-house. The combination of this new equipment and software has enabled us to reduce our use of sub-contractors and reduce costs (which is passed on to the client), while massively improving our quality control and production times.

 Stewart Wilkins (Director) said, “By giving us the facility to do more work internally, the DYSS has gone far beyond just reducing our subcontract costs. Our speed of response has improved by more than 50%; some PoP projects have a lead-time that has fallen from 5-6 weeks to less than 3 weeks. This streamlines our business, eliminates reliance on external suppliers and gives us full control over costs, quality and delivery schedules.

From a prototype perspective, we can deliver instant solutions without reliance on external sources. The DYSS also compresses our development times, meaning we can react to customer design changes with exacting precision and speed. From project ‘brief to delivery’ we had an average turnaround time of 8 weeks; this is now less than 5 weeks. Contributing to this time saving is the ability to continually refine designs and prototypes in-house for clients. Before getting the DYSS, continually refining prototypes could get expensive. The process is critical as it allows our customers to better qualify the design of the project by seeing exactly what they will ultimately receive, which makes the customer journey and commitment process more robust.”
