This past week I’ve been given a new job: production manager for our woodworking company. So, I’d like to share some of the other machines in my life.
While this machine is primarily busy cutting wood and plastics, it is the best thing that has ever happened to my commercial sewing. It is a laser cutter. Using lasers it actually evaporates the molecules of the material it is cutting. We use it to cut wood, metal, plastic, and fabric. It cannot cut vinyl because a poisonous gas is produced. Of course I have at least one vinyl product that would benefit from laser cutting but…can’t kill off the operator!
It cuts in accordance with the code downloaded to it from a commercial drafting program. I use it to make perfectly accurate blanks for the products I sew. I’m so glad to be replaced by a machine!
