Today I want to talk about another aspect of Kaleidoscope Laser that isn't always social media friendly. It's our B2B jobs - small runs of parts and pieces for other companies. And by small, I mean under 3,000 units. Technically called job shop, those are facilities that do small jobs so that a large company doesn't need to retool or bring in equipment for a short-term task.
It can be marketing items like key fobs or leatherette labels. Or it can be laser engraving hundreds of pieces that are a part of a larger unit like tap handles or custom trophy bases. We can cut and engrave plastic tags to identify equipment parts or organize bins. Then using the same badge plastic material, we make signs to identify tractors, vehicles, hallways, rooms and direction.
Right now, we are processing another batch of acrylic parts for a company that was just awarded a patent! So cool to be a part of that - conception to production. Yes, R & D is something we can help with too. Conception to production. Floyd is now cutting some samples of the next generation of that product.
So, while you may not always see the less glamorous, high volume jobs, they are very much a part of our capabilities whether laser or CNC router.
All this to say, multiple income streams are vital to our small company. We make stuff, so keep us in mind when you hear a request for small parts production.
