Going through the CNCROi.com website, something becomes apparent pretty quickly, there are no logos of other companies other than ours engraved, annealed, etched or cut across endless varieties of materials! Why? This is a question I get every once in a while from clients.
Short answer is we are focused on integrating our services into other companies supply chains. As such, we sign NDAs and the like that essentially means we can’t blab about the work we do for other companies. There are a few notable exceptions to this rule such as the work we did for Instructibles.com (owned by Autodesk btw) where I’m the judge for the CNC competition (see my other business CNCKing.com for background) but this trend will continue.
The other reason why you always see essentially the same logo across all these materials is that it helps to show the contrasting results between say fiber marking stainless steel and annealing it. Having a bunch of different logos is an added distraction to the services CNCROi.com is offering across an endless variety of materials.
Some other projects we do to further showcase the capabilities of our equipment and our expertise we generally use scrap, not because we are cheap but because if we can do something awesome on crappy material, imagine what we can do on the good stuff (we also do stuff on high quality in blog posts too).
There is also a lot of experimentation going on at CNCROi.com too! How do you become good at something? Play with it and keep on trying! Sometimes the results don’t come out all that nice…
like this chunk of scrap plywood… needs to have another laser engraving procedure to further outline the text while other times, the results even surprise us!
The point is, our industrial large format dual-sourced Austrian CNC laser is capable of an incredible variety of tasks, no matter how much stuff we show on our site, there is always something new and innovating worth trying out. Getting a Trotec Laser was not the end of a journey but the beginning of an awesome adventure!
From anodized aluminium to wood, delrin to acrylics, there are so many possibilities of what we can do, we aren’t about to run out of any cool blog postings for a long while yet. Believe it or not, this is our 129th blog post and even if I don’t write anything for the next two weeks, I still have 12 articles queued-up and ready to go automatically on our blog! This comes in very handy as some weeks I’m just too busy to write anything so I take advantage of “slow times” to built-up more “profitable times”.
What I hope you see by going through our blogs is the evolution of a company, things change, get improved upon and continue to improve at a slow but steady pace. Even our promo packs have changed quite a bit from their humble beginnings, above is our “current” cardboard “card” and below was our original… yep, it’s already out of date already upon posting as we’ve further refined our message and by playing around, discovered more efficient or fun ways to showcase our capabilities!
Even our metal tags have changed, I did a new run yesterday and they look better than ever (blog post and videos coming soon). We’ve improved our annealing and fiber marking capabilities through constantly playing around with settings, power and material selection. Invested in fiber annealing and marking specific lenses and a vast array of custom table options. Although I doubt we’ll be handing our REAL mirrors in the near future as they are quite fragile, the fact that we can showcase the effects and show our passion for etching it is generally enough to help push things along.
So whether you are looking for a company that can create custom Delrin molds for embossing paper or searching for a company that can anneal even the toughest of metals, you’ve found us!
The next step, send CNCROi.com a message about your project requirements and we’ll get the ball rolling!
