Enabling Innovation: Driving Productivity with the Power of Laser-cutting

18 December, 2018, 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Nottingham Trent Uni logo

This is an introduction to laser cutting for SMEs. This session will explore new technologies for your business with laser-cutting innovation. 

What’s on offer?

We have split this session into two parts.  Moreover, it will give you a general overview of the fantastic designs you can create using laser cutters.

In the first half of the session, you will be guided through the process of how to turn your ideas into a file suitable for laser cutting.  This will touch on the following:

  • Design and the different programmes you can use such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw and more
  • How to prepare and save files so they are suitable for Laser Cutting

The second half of the session is all about the Laser Cutter and you will:

  • Discover the processes of sending a file to cut
  • Learn about the different materials that you can cut and engrave
  • See the machine in action

Further information and registration

This is just one part of a double bill of events for SMEs exploring design technology. It is further complemented by a 3D printing event in the morning  (9am-1pm). As a result, we encourage delegates to book on to both events and enjoy the whole day with us. Of course, we also give you the option to book on to just one event.

This event starts at 12:30pm with registration and a networking lunch. Thereafter the main presentations will be delivered from 1pm. And the event will close at 4pm.

While this is a FREE event, we only have a limited number of spaces available. So don’t delay, book your place today. If you would like any further information about this event before booking your place, please email us.

Although this event is free to attend, attendees must register in advance. In order to attend this event you must be eligible for support from the Enabling Innovation Programme, which supports SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Enabling Innovation is a three-year collaboration between Nottingham Trent University, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Derby. In short, it supports SMEs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to innovate. Furthermore, the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) part-funds this event.
