Handsworth Grammar School have become a new Centre of Excellence and demo centre for Birmingham

Hobarts Lasers Ltd have installed at Handsworth Grammar School a PLS6.150D 100 Watt Laser Cutter and the excellent UP! Box 3D printer.



The PLS platform laser cutter delivers exceptional cutting, marking, and engraving results for users who need both high speed and high quality. This cutter is also designed to handle 3D engraving, complex cutting, and intricate scoring and marking, making this a fantastic addition to the DT department!


UP! BOX provides a build volume of 255 × 205 × 205 mm (W × H × D) for extra large print jobs. Its large print platform enables small batch 3D printing productions to be carried out with unprecedented efficiency. The unit produces very little noise, with a built-in air filter that absorbs fumes and minimises odour, you will feel comfortable working with it in the same room, on the same desk.



Hobarts are very pleased to welcome Handsworth Grammar School to be part of our Centres of Excellence scheme. This allows Hobarts to be able to use the new equipment at Handsworth for demoing to prospective customers in the Birmingham area. Arrangements are made with the school that are suitable with their timetable to create minimal disruptions. This also helps the prospective customer to get hands-on feedback from the members of staff at Handsworth, that use these machines on a daily basis.


Hobarts have various Centres of Excellence around the UK, so if you would like a demonstration of a laser cutter or 3D printer at a centre near you, please get in touch. A full list of Centres of Excellence will be available on our website in 2017.


If you feel that your School, College, or Business could be a Centre of Excellence, please contact Hobarts.
