Make48 is glad to have this laser company back! Epilog Laser manufactures the world's leading laser engraving and cutting systems, and will play a pivotal role in Make48’s future. Epilog Laser supported Make48 during seasons 1-4 and will be the laser company of seasons 7 and 8 of Make48.
Mike Dean, VP of Sales and Marketing for Epilog Laser, said “The Maker community is the foundation of the next generation of inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs. We're excited to be able to partner with Make48 to help bring leading edge equipment to its teams and can’t wait to see what they create!”
Mike Connor recently joined Make48’s ambassador team and facilitated the sponsorship with Epilog due to his long standing relationship with the laser giant. As the founder of Fab Lab Stoughton, Mike came to know Epilog well. “When we first began making equipment purchasing decisions we visited Fab Labs in other cities and saw that Epilog was featured on the Fab Foundation website (Epilog was recommended by the Foundation).”
“Epilog has a long history of making high quality, trouble-free machines, which is a reason they were recommended to us. At the Fab Lab, we have 5 Epilogs. When I joined Make48, I connected the dots. I thought it would be a win-win for Epilog and Make48 to get together and collaborate in the Maker movement. To me it’s a natural fit.”
Viewers will be able to watch the Tool Techs and teams work together on the Epilog Laser at the 2023 competitions and Nationals this November. They will also stay on to sponsor 2024 city events.
