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, we 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 quickly 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 Luxigo can be found at the Rotterdamseweg. In the beginnen of 2020 Luxigo had divided the workshop (number 370 A12 and the office (number 370 A13). MTB3D is also located on this address, a company where many 3D printers are running.
At the beginning of 2021 we were informed that the building at number 370A10 became available. Together with MTB3D it has been decided that Luxigo will move to number 370A10 and MTB3D will use the entire building at number 370A13. This gives both companies a lot more room to grow!
