This is where the “The Laser Initiative” can help…at
least when it comes to finding out how laser processing may improve
your production methods, enabling novel product design, cost effective
manufacture and production agility. The Lairdside Laser Engineering
Centre has recently won European and Regional funding for “The Laser
Initiative” to help local companies assess whether laser technology
can help to increase the size and profitability of their business.
your company benefit from this Initiative?
We think so! “The Laser Initiative” is fully funded and does not
require a cash contribution from any participating company.
is why we would like to invite Merseyside SME's to participate...
small companies have successfully used lasers to...
Penetrate a new market sector,
by reducing time to market from 6 months to less than 1 week.
Significantly reduced production reject
rates Not only did the cost savings pay for the investment,
life got easier when the end customer received good parts every
the design and performance of their product…
laser processing enabled optimised designs that cannot be manufactured
using traditional techniques.
participation in “The Laser Initiative”
can provide companies with a ‘no cost, no risk’ route to
evaluating whether laser processing can improve your specific manufacturing
processes by participating in a ‘pick and mix’ program of:
to understand the capabilities of laser processes and review typical
assessment of your production methods, product designs and market
Feasibility studies, together
with an analysis of process costs, cost-of-ownership and return
on investment calculations
the event that a promising opportunity
is identified, “The Laser Initiative”
can continue to provide practical assistance with: prototyping,
producing a business plan, supplier assessments etc., as well as
providing process training and ongoing process support during the
critical start-up phase.
