D&D Smith is a family-owned company that takes prides in its Australian manufacturing operation and its ability to supply a number of products straight off the shelf.

The company has expanded its capabilities in recent years, and now includes laser cutting amongst its processes, thanks to the acquisition of a new 4kW Yawei HLF-1530 laser cutter from Applied Machinery in May 2018.

The simplicity of programming and the high cutting speed of the Yawei now allows D&D to handle short production runs, produce custom moulds and build prototype designs of the highest quality, differentiating itself from competitors and opening up new markets.

Daniel Smith is one of the partners in D&D Smith, and he reckons that the Yawei fibre laser has essentially “transformed his business” during a period of dwindling turnover and says he is now talking to customers the company has never spoken to before.

“Quite simply, it has brought our business into the 21st century and has allowed us to properly compete with other companies, so it really is a great product,” he goes on to say.

Smith is particularly is impressed with the machine’s functionality and its value for money, saying: “This machine simplifies your life; it’s easy to use and operate. Furthermore, when you take into account the purchase price it really does represent fantastic value for such a versatile and high quality machine.”

Daniel Smith is also impressed with praises the service provided by Applied Machinery. “The back up and support from Applied has been terrific. From beginning to end they have been excellent. All our technical questions were answered promptly and the occasional issue we’ve had has been quickly addressed,” he concludes.
