My name is Guilherme, and i´m from Santa Catarina, Brazil.
I follow the forum for a long time, but now i´m going to you to ask for some help or information.
I´m a Industrial Designer, and I had worked for a long time in the naval industry, as Production Manager in a Yachts Shipyard, and my principal interest was the CNC machine, that I helped to build (It was the second bigger in the world, a milling envelope of 33mx9mx3,5m).
When I left the company, I got specialized in a various types of CNC Machines, Surboard Milling Machines, Vinyl Cutters, Pen plotter, Wood Milling, etc… focused in low cost x right performance machine.
I did some machines, including low cost surfboard cnc, and i´m wondering if there in Californi could be Surfboard Builders/Factories interested in that machines.
My idea is to invest some time in US producing a limited series of machines, maybe 5 or 6.
I have the project of 3 kinds of machines, everyone with his own particularities, that can help diferent kinds of shapers.
I think that this is a good idea, mainly because I can build a machine very cheaper than the machines in the market.
What do you think about my idea?
It is possible? Is viable?
The first machine that I did, very low cost
This is my webpage, under construction, and in portuguese, but is interesting to see the pictures
Sorry if i wrote someting wrong.
