AP LAZER: Michigan Invention Revolutionizes the Funeral Industry
LANSING, Mich., May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — AP Lazer has evolved the funeral industry, and people are starting to notice. While demonstrated at Lansing Center’s Michigan Funeral Association convention from May 12 to 13 2015, it became the talk of the show.
Originally created to engrave urns, cemetery monuments and caskets, the unique design of the AP Lazer machine enables users to engrave a limitless amount of surfaces. The invention has also been noticed by universities offering degrees of mortuary science, such as Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan.
“You are not in the death care industry, you are in the memory care industry”. Lansing-based entrepreneur, Dr. Tong Li, explained to mortuary students at the show, “In the past 50 years, funeral professionals are more respected than ever.” Dr. Li said. “However, the role of the funeral director has evolved into one of a memory director.”
Death is a part of life that needs to be memorialized and personalized in individual ways. It’s a season celebrating the life of a loved one, and all those blessed by his or her life. However, birth is also a memorable event. Graduations, weddings, anniversaries and retirements all deserve attention and services. Dr. Li challenged the students enrolled in Wayne State’s Mortuary Science Program:Can your generation of funeral directors evolve into memory directors?
This goal can be realized with the AP Lazer machine. With a convertible and removable z-table, the AP Lazer machine allows users to engrave large and bulky items, such as interior and exterior decorations, furniture, shoes and blue jeans; to smaller products and personalized gifts, including trophies, sporting goods, guns, jewelry, coffee mugs, frames and so much more.
Therefore, the AP Lazer creates new ways for the funeral industry to become a “memory-care” business, and preserve memories from cradle to grave and beyond. Dr. Li’s words left students from Wayne State excited about their future careers and the possibilities afforded by the AP Lazer: enabling funeral professionals to engrave every memory, every artistic vision, and every inspiration on almost every surface.
