Laser Cutters

In recent years, laser cutters have established themselves as a staple piece of equipment in school workspaces. Unfortunately, professional-quality laser cutters can fall outside of school budgets when you factor in installation and maintenance, but we have a solution. 

We carry a range of laser cutters perfectly suited to schools. From starter models for schools using them for the first time to powerful high-spec models for colleges and universities, we can provide exactly what you need.

Ideal for cutting, carving, woodworking and prototyping with incredible accuracy, we can provide you with CNC routers at competitive rates. Our selection of school-friendly models and leasing packages are simple and do away with the need for upfront capital, removing budget obstacles. 

3D printers

These exciting pieces of equipment have hit the mainstream, giving your students the chance to design and create in 3D. With various models aimed at all levels of skill, enhancing your D&T lessons with 3D printers doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. We can provide support and curriculum training to make integration as seamless as possible. Your staff can even receive pre-prepared lesson plans to help create fulfilling and enjoyable projects for your students.

Our extended five-year warranty is inclusive of parts and labour. Additional damage cover provides extra peace of mind and allows us to fully maintain your equipment for the duration of your lease.
