LANSING, Mich., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AP Lazer will exhibit at the International Woodworking Fair to show woodworking businesses how to use a patented, high-power AP Lazer machine to engrave and cut wood, capturing the fast-growing personalization market trend to add high profit to any product. The laser machine company will display their technology amongst over 1,000 exhibitors in Atlanta, GA on August 24-27.
Company founder Tong Li will give live demonstrations of operation and maintenance of the machine. Li will highlight profit potential through lasers by making precise, intricate wood cuts and engraving photo-quality graphics onto any wood surface.
"Woodworking is a tough business that generally has low margins despite all of the design, craftsmanship, and effort that's involved in the production process," said AP Lazer President, David Strickler.
"It's time to look at the woodworking industry differently," said Strickler. "One way to dramatically improve profit is by adding laser engraving to the finishing process to capitalize on the personalization trend in the U.S."
Customization increases profit revenue and customer brand loyalty. Products sporting engraved logos are perceived by customers as having high value and quality. Consistent logo presence also increases brand recognition.
Laser machines offer a low-cost personalization solution. Beyond the initial cost of the machine, there are few additional costs to implementation. They have low operating costs - electricity to run the machine and time spent creating and engraving custom images - and can operate as an additional step or be implemented directly into an existing production line.
A laser machine's cutting ability varies based on the type of wood, but can cut some woods up to ½" thick. Baltic Birch is the favorite of at-home hobbyists, but Alder, MDF, and Bamboo are popular in commercial use.
AP Lazer specializes in high-power laser machines with large work areas. Developed to engrave granite monuments, their patented design offers work spaces up to 48" x 36" with no height and few weight
restrictions. All of their machines use CO2 powered lasers with 80 to 100 watts of cutting and engraving power.
AP Lazer was founded in 2010 in Lansing, MI as a division of granite supplier SuperNova International. To learn more about AP Lazer, visit www.aplazer.com or find them on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or YouTube.
