Luxigo was founded in May 2014 by Daan van Duijn and IJsbrand de Lange, then bachelor students at the Technical University in Delft. As a side job, they both worked as instructors in the Mechanical Engineering workshop where first-year students followed instructions for turning, milling, laser cutting and other processing machines. The fascination for laser cutting has arisen in the workshop and the many possibilities have been tested with the machine. The idea for an own laser machine was born.
The name Luxigo was born. Luxigo specializes in laser cutting and engraving of materials with high precision and quality.
Hence the name, Luxigo, which originated from the Latin words ‘Lux‘ (light) and ‘Exigo‘ (exactly).
Since a laser cutter is not something to put in a student room, Luxigo immediately went looking for its own location. Luxigo has started with a space on the Buitenwatersloot of less than 25 square meters. After a year, a second adjacent space has been rented to expand Luxigo. Another year later, in September 2016, Luxigo decided to move to a larger space on the Staalweg in Delft.
Since September 2018, Luxigo has continued as a sole trader. IJsbrand has since fully focused on his new company Stil-Technology. Daan has chosen to continue the work and start more companies around lasercutting.
In January 2019, the work at Luxigo was expanded with a new company: Woodymaps. WoodyMaps creates wooden city maps, postcards and coasters. Take a look at the website and check if your city is available!
In addition to WoodyMaps and graduation, the following company went online in October 2019: Kraeck. Kraeck was founded by Marc, Freek and Daan and is involved in the development of wooden puzzles. From mobile escape rooms, children’s puzzles, but also certainly workshops for larger groups.
The contract for the Staalweg expired in early 2020. As a result, Luxigo has moved for the second time. Since February 16, 2020 we can be found at Rotterdamseweg 370 A12 (workshop) and A13 (office). MTB3D is also located on this address, a company where many 3D printers are running. Together with the laser cutting of Luxigo, this is a super nice combination!
I have been working together with Luxigo for a while for laser cutting and making electrochemical cells. Both Ijsbrand and Daan are very friendly and have helped me a lot with making my cells both in design and in the material side. I have also found that they provide plexiglasses at a cheaper price than some other shops. Overall things get done at quicker time and affordable rate.
Erg tevreden met luxigo! Ze denken goed met je mee, zijn erg communicatief en staan altijd klaar voor nieuwe opdrachten, zelfs als die wat last moment zijn proberen ze zo goed mogelijk te helpen! Kwaliteit is ook altijd erg goed, ze hebben veel ervaring en weten precies wat er wel en niet mogelijk en mooi is! Zijn ook niet bang om wat te experimenteren 🙂 Goede prijs, goede kwaliteit en heel erg klantvriendelijk! Toppers!
Snelle levering en topservice.
Daan van Luxigo is erg vriendelijk. Reageert snel, ook in het weekend. Ze zijn oplossingsgericht en denken goed met je mee. Ik twijfelde tussen twee materialen en door de kennis vanuit Luxigo viel meteen één materiaal af waardoor ik de juiste keuze kon maken. Prachtig resultaat en een goede prijs-kwaliteitsverhouding 🙂 Ik ben erg tevreden, een aanrader!
