Maruthu Makes Keychains For Malaysia

Dr. Maruthu from
Malaysia, here on task force, is one of the Iraivan Temple fund
raising team in Malaysia. He set himself and ambitious goal to
create over 1000 key chains for donors to the Iraivan temple
building fund floor stone project.

He has been
working with Kumarswami who helped him prepare 1/4 inch think
wood sheets for use on the Aadheenam’s new Epilog Zing engraving
machine. Sivakatirswami helped him prepare all the files for the
engraving and they have been working hard together for the last
five days.

Here if you look very closely you can
see the bright point of light. The laser has finished the
“raster” cutting in of the graphic on top and is not doing
“vector cut thru” of the border of each key chain.. cutting
completely thru the wood.

On the previous pass
it cut the little holes for the key chain to pass thru. Here it
is cutting out the last one on the first row down.

Now it moved up to the
top of the second row….

Third row…

PDF’s are sent from
the PC to the Epilog machine where they queue up as jobs and
Maruthu runs them after insert a new sheet of wood. A single
sheet takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Almost done with this
one! Only one more to go…

Just lift out the
sheet and the keychains will almost fall out.

Here we have added a lovely key chain.

The look really

Here are all the
different varieties he has made.

Today he completed his goal of over 1000 key chains!
