"We have been working with Laurie Barcaskey since 2014." said Foster Nickel the Toolroom Manger.
Foster explained, " We originally purchased an Automator Laser Engraver for marking our parts only for identification purposes. One day shortly after purchasing the engraver we found ourselves with a rush order for some debossed parts and the vendor we typically purchase our graphite anodes from could not meet our customer’s timeline. "
"We don't have a high speed mill able to make the fine detail on the anodes required to meet our customer specifications and typically outsource this item. We were able to utilize the laser engraver to cut the graphite anode and then using our EDM sinker make our own debossing tool with laser point accuracy." said Foster, "This cut our lead time down from weeks to minutes and eliminated the cost of outsourcing completely."
Foster found Leading Marks' Laurie Barcaskey very helpful. "Laurie offers good pricing, provides good service and is able to answer our questions. We would recommend her for your next project!"
