Indoor Signage Solutions

While there are many types of indoor signage available, including common shop bought signs that are cheap and easy to install. For a high quality finish, its recommended that bespoke signs are used.

A Bespoke signs are designed by providing the core (substrate) and cap (profile) layers separately. By outlining the desired images or text in the adhesive backed profile layer, and peeling away the excess material, bespoke signs create raised letter signage capable of complying with all ADA raised-letter regulations. The raised letter process is also a great way to create multi-coloured signage with your engraving machine.

Bespoke signs created in this way are highly resistant, capable of withstanding scratches, breaks, bending and even UV light. Bespoke signs have a matt or gloss finish depending on the manufacturer and can be finished in a range of colours, usually chosen by the client.

Useful Business Technologies On The Market

It’s no surprise that using the right technology can give your business the upper hand in the commercial world. Regardless of the size of your business, make the most of the resources available and utilise the best technology available.

Apple iMac

It used to be that high-end graphics power was limited to high end and expensive Apple products, but no more. Recently redesigned, this entry-level, slim, all-in-one desktop with a 21.5-inch screen and 2.7 GHz processor offers 1 TB of storage plus 8 GB of active memory. It is also fitted with a reasonable amount of expansion slots for peripherals and customization options.

Diamond Cutting – Laser Sawing

Diamond cutting and finishing has seen many advancements over the past 100 years. As technology has developed, so to has the ability for diamonds to be crafted. 

The laser saw is one such technology that revolutionised diamond cutting when it was introduced in the 1930s. Many modern diamonds are cut using laser equipment which is far more accurate and efficient.

How Laser Sawing Works

The stone is mounted onto a dop so it can be directed through a laser beam. The burned graphite from the high-temperature laser leaves a black mark around both sides of the stone where the laser cut through. Because of this, these sides will then need to be polished. In certain cases, more weight is lost than would have been with conventional sawing.

The biggest advantage of laser cutting is the ability to cut with extreme precision. There is also no cutting edge to wear down, and lasers are less likely to warp the diamond because the heat is confined within a narrow space.

Machinery for Textiles

Many people think of the manufacturing industry having big bulky machines and drills, perhaps even lasers but that certainly is not always the case. Knitting machines and lace making machines are part of the manufacturing industry, for merely textile products of course. Knitting machines can quickly create loops out of yarn and it essentially mimics the way a person knits and completes the task at a much faster pace. However, a human still needs to operate it and use their skills to guarantee precision.

Textile machinery can also include lace making machines, and they tend to be used to braid, loop, or thread the fabric. It’s quite an art and rather than a person spending days on an intricate textile product, it can be created in a fraction of time.

Textile machinery will always exist and it will develop over time, and it’s important that it’s recognised as part of the textile machinery.

Understanding Cutting Technologies

Cutting technology is a necessary part of manufacturing a product, and an important consideration for businesses. As new cutting technologies come into play, the adaptation of them into your business will save time and money for years to come.

This post looks at some of the current technologies and how understanding them can help your specific business requirements.

Die Cutting and Water Jet Cutting

From small, swing arm cutting presses to fully automated die cutting lines. Die cutting is a widely used method of automated cutting. For some applications however, water jet cutting or CNC knife cutting may be more appropriate, especially where shorter runs and enhanced versatility are required.

These two types of cutting technology vary in several ways. Die cutting is a technology suited more for softer materials, such as leather, foil or cloth. Where as water jet cutting can be used for high density materials like metal.
