Large scale 3D routing – at a staggering discount

There’s little doubt that laser cutters have positively changed the outcome and expectations of students within the design technology curriculum.

What’s more, many schools have found that a 3D router is a beneficial extension to this technology, mainly due to their ability to work on large scale projects and with thicker, more durable materials.

As a result, the manufacture of real or full size project pieces such as furniture is a rewarding experience, encompassing a true to life manufacturing experience.

The cost of a large scale router can be more expensive than a medium format laser cutter. However we have one exhibition model Suregrave Gryphon (1220 x 610 mm), available on a first come first served basis.

The price has been reduced by a third on the exhibition Gryphon router (usual price £14,995) making the price £10,000 plus VAT.

You might also be interested in knowing that Trotec machines can be purchased outright or through our special finance for schools package which can spread the cost over and up to five years.

Additionally, you can keep the Gryphon covered against breakdown for the cost of an annual service for £499 anywhere in the UK mainland.

There’s more information on the Suregrave Grythpon on our website at

How do you tell who hasn’t got a backache?

Laptops and netbooks are wonderful inventions – except when you have to move them en masse from one part of the school to another.

You can of course put them on a trolley, but items can slip off trolleys. And besides, trolleys are wide things that don’t always fit into cupboards.

Which is why some laptops and netbooks get carried around, and why some people, as a result, get a backache.

But here’s a thought: supposing you could put all your laptops and/or netbooks in a suitcase and then (and this is the clever bit) put wheels on the suitcase – just as you have wheels on the suitcase you use when going to the airport.

That’s what the NetRoller netbook store and charge is – a suitcase on wheels that stores netbooks or laptops. And, as a bonus, it charges them too.

The NetRoller is exceptionally lightweight and robust, enabling you to charge and transport up to 16 netbooks up to 10.2” size. The laptop version, the LapRoller, can store 8 x 12” laptops.

What’s more, if storing space is limited, up to 3 NetRollers can be stacked on top of each other.

Each Netroller contains a built-in Electrical Power Management system (EPM) which monitors the amount of current coming from the mains supply which prevents the electric circuits from tripping.

An energy saving feature is also included: the Auto-Power-Off function automatically switches the unit off after a 8 hour charging cycle allowing the unit to charge overnight without wasting energy.
