Chris Cope, Montsaye Academy

“Our machines are being put to great use. The amount of work the CNC lathe and laser cutter have had is great – brilliant kit for the learners to develop the iterative models for Product Design. We have used it across Art and Design for 3D project work and are finding better projects and ways of making things because we can.”

Montsaye Academy currently use three of our machines: LS100 Laser, 160TCLi lathe and A3HSRmi2 CNC router. 

Jayne King, Matrix Technology Solutions

Matrix chose Boxford as their supplier when they needed to upgrade to a new laser cutting machine in 2019.

Their BGL690 laser cutting and engraving machine has afforded the company “Reduced labour time for building certain products”.

They found our customer service “very helpful” and rated us 5/5 as a machine supplier. 

Steve Sarsfeld, City of London Freemen's School

“The after care that Boxford offer is a major factor in choosing them as CAD/CAM partner. Their training is excellent and the above the products are always made to the highest standards. If there are ever any issues I have always been able to ask their advice and a solution quickly follows. Great company – great service!”

Alun Pickford, Head of Design Technology

“Boxford have provided me with exceptional service over the past 15 years. I would always look at their machines before others on the basis they are reliable, easy to use, have excellent service and spares, and provide over the phone help with any problems, large or small. Having worked with other suppliers for 15 years before using Boxford, they have been the most consistent and reliable machines. They are robust and easy to use so students are able to run the machines entirely by themselves.”

Gary Murphy, Merlin Precision Engineering

“We purchased a Superb Quality Metal Cutting Bench Top Router. Very well built, very well Engineered and if and when I had any issues it was dealt with by Customer Services promptly and politely.
Was a pleasure to deal with, long may it continue”

Vashti Tatham, Mullion School

“At KS3 it has enabled me to visualise to the students the CAD/CAM process and to make the concept of liasing with manufacturers easier to understand by producing repetitive products that I can call ‘bought in standard components’. Great for high ability students to produce theirown individual components at KS4.

It’s great that you have the set up training day as when you speak to the team at the end of the phone you can put a name to a face and you know who you are talking to.”

Gemma Hill, Repton School

In buying Boxford equipment, Repton School have benefited from a “greater variety of projects”, and also helped “realise projects that would not have been previously possible or straightforward without the benefit and accuracy of CNC.”

Gemma comented that Boxford have gone “above and beyond on many occasions, for example, talking us through technical issues and suggesting helps and fixes.”

Brunel Engraving have been using Boxford for a couple of years now since installing a 1.5KW laser cutter. From first contact with the sales department to after sales they have been brilliantly responsive to all contact. Most importantly the machine has worked above our expectations and is still going strong.

Great customer service from the technical and sales team! We're super happy with our CO2 laser, the auto focus function is a game changer!

After purchasing a machine in early January there was great communication from the payment all the way to the delivery, driving from the far north all the way down to the south east delivering the machine. With one issue that was no fault of the company but a fault with electrical equipment they drove down almost straight away and replaced the part and got the machine working again with minimal delay to my business. For the company i would recommend having a trolley to pull the heavy equipment due to a personal injury i couldn't help in lifting the machine. But I will be looking to buy from them again in the future.

We have bought two Co2 lasers from Boxford , these are to replace our aging Gravotech & Universal lasers . When looking for new machines Boxford did not appear in my online searches , I was about to purchase new machines costing over £15k each from other UK suppliers. I attended an exhibition at the NEC and came across Boxford lasers. I was very impressed with their machines, the cost of ownership was much lower than other suppliers i had been considering. The machines came with Lightburn software, this software is way ahead of the software supplied with other machines , I believe it is now the industry standard for laser cutting and engraving . After purchasing two machines we had a minor problem with one of the machines camaras. Boxford promptly sent an engineer to fix the problem. Very impressed with the after sales service. As an Electrical Engineering Company we were especially impressed with the quality of the machine safety features, extremely well designed. I can highly recommend Boxford.

Boxford supplied our laser cutter; it was delivered in person by a Boxford employee who got it off the van safely, commissioned and tested it in our makerspace, resolved a minor issue with the lens which had come loose in transit and taught us how to use the software and the laser cutter. It's a fast and efficient machine and we're delighted with Boxford's customer service, both in the sale and the after-sale support. They were even kind enough to include us in a sample kit delivery that only started after we received our machine; top rate customer service!

From initial enquiry, all the way through to delivery and after sales technical support, the guys at Boxford have been fantastic! So knowledgeable, quick to reply, always happy to help. It's such a relief to a small business like us, to know we have them to rely on. We purchased a CO2 laser cutter, and our business has gone onto the next level, wouldn't use anybody else when we outgrow this machine (hopefully sooner rather than later!) Thanks guys!
