Xenetech Staff Gives More Than Great Service

The Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center Blood Bank Mobile Unit paid a visit to the Xenetech parking lot again this fall. Xenetech employees answered by call by donating blood and plasma to be used in the local and regional communities. In addition to feeling great about giving, employees received LSU Tiger t-shirts for their efforts.

"We have the privilege to live and work in a great city and country and it is important that we find ways to give back," states Kathy. "Contributing blood is easy and goes a long way in helping others in need. We encourage everyone who can give to visit their local blood bank."

Connect the Dots by Letting the Machine Do the Work.


Ben Rosenstein, Senior Tech Support RepresentativeThough not a brand new capability, I still talk to customers who wish to make the process of braille signage easier.  Xenetech tables can be easily outfit with an auto-insert braille raster attachment by simply changing the outer bracket of the existing spindle block. When coupled with the Viper Controllers, the process of completing such signage becomes even more simple. All you have to do is run the job once to drill the holes, enable the attachment by pressing a button on the Viper touch screen, and then run the job again so that the attachment can place the braille rasters into the holes.

Note that all Xenetech systems can use this attachment, but for non-Viper controllers, the attachment offset will have to be manually entered by the operator.

You can check out knowledgebase instructions here for details.

You can also check out online videos of the process of engraving braille with the braille inserter.

Less Work, More Play.

Jason Minton- Xenetech Customer ServiceSomewhat frequently, customers ask if there is a way to run jobs without having to send them from the computer each time.
With Microstepper electronics, you could simply press the HOME RETAIN switch to recall the last engraved job.

However, with Xenetech Ethernet-based rotary and laser engravers, you can simply place the corresponding .lsr and .jbs files
into the system outbox, and call them up when ready by pressing JOBS on the touchpad. This has the benefit of allowing operators to call up any of stock jobs  from a virtual library that you want to repeat without having to go to the computer.

Check out this knowledgebase article for details.
