The William Parker School in Daventry, UK, has recently purchased a Universal Laser VL200 system from ES Technology Ltd. to enhance the manufacturing facilities and learning experiences of students participating in the Design Technology component of the school curriculum.
As an authorized distributor for Universal Laser, ES Technology Ltd. is a supplier for the VersaLaser (VLS) and Professional Laser Series (PLS) laser systems to a diverse range of UK customers.
Using the VL200 laser system, the students can now perform high quality cutting and engraving operations on the diverse range of materials that are used to produce student models. The materials which can be processed by the system include:
• Acrylic sheet
• Paper and card
• Composite plastics
• Plastic and aluminium labels
• Metal components
The ULS CO2 laser is a highly flexible system and is particularly good for cutting fine decorative shapes in acrylic materials. The system can be quickly set up from a PC and, with a work area of 476mm x 368mm x 102mm, a wide range of student projects can be accommodated within the system.
Bob Groom, Technical Instructor at William Parker School said, "I am very impressed with the laser cutter, and the school uses it on a daily basis."
The VL200 system provides the students with an insight into the world of CAD/CAM manufacturing.
