The 360-Mastery Methodology
Safely avoid detrimental delays and pitfalls
Introducing laser technology to your product development and successfully bringing it to manufacturing can be challenging and highly risky. Without proper knowledge or guidance, product development and manufacturing can sometimes slip into a "valley of death," filled with unexpected and detrimental pitfalls that can jeopardize an entire program.
We have developed the 360-Mastery Methodology specifically to help you identify and mitigate these risks, bridging the "valley of death." Our approach provides a safe and efficient plan that takes you from prototype to production success, whether it's low- or high-volume. The end result is a tool solution that is optimal from a technological, manufacturing, and business perspective.
The 360-Mastery approach
We select the optimal laser for your specific needs by deeply understanding your technical requirements. Our approach involves utilizing the expertise of our laser application specialists and the resources of our state-of-the-art laser laboratory.
Our process and automation teams work directly with your manufacturing engineers during the development phase, ensuring a thorough understanding of your workflow, throughput, and facility needs. This direct collaboration leads to efficient and effective solutions.
To maximize commercial viability, we conduct a thorough assessment of the economic feasibility of each potential laser solution. We collaborate closely with your team to comprehend the key factors influencing your Return on Investment (ROI), as well as any financial, timeline, or other business constraints.
