Since the install of our PJB1060 Laser pupils are even more excited to do Design & Technology now; more younger pupils (KS3) are opting to do Technology based subjects at GCSE. Technical support have been superb, promptly answering our questions and assisting with our needs.
Jovan, St Ignatius College
Excellent. I already had one laser cutter but needed another to reduce waiting time for pupils and also to have back-up in case something goes wrong with one. It is a really no-nonsense, easy to use machine. It is the pride of our DT workshop and even the 8 and 9 year old boys are using it semi-independently. It teaches the pupils how to use different machines.
The Beacon School
Many thanks to the team at Radecal for the smooth supply and installation of our new Laser Cutter and the 3D Printer that came with it. An excellent service from first contact through supply, fitting and also the excellent teaching and demonstration package provided.
Steve Collingwood, Engineering technician at North Notts College
The laser has been great for the students' curriculum as it has provided work related learning, meeting industry standards and can integrate into several course topics. Radecal are always available for any questions we have, they've provided a tip-top service which has been highly informative and useful for the staff allowing us to provide effective course content to our students. We are more than happy to recommend Radecal as they have been an amazing help to us.
Dave Gore, Head Technician, Wigan College
Radecal was useful for exchanging and upgrading of equipment. I will use this company in future if the same situation arises, which I'm sure it will.
Sean Molloy, Lumen Christi College
Radecal are always quick when responding to technical issues and queries. Our new laser machine has certainly added a new dimension to what we do.
