Recently, AP Lazer was contacted by the producers of Animal Planet’s Tanked TV show. The Tanked team from Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM) will take fish tank building to a whole new level! The elaborate tanks they create are all filled with the most exotic, colorful, and unusual fish in the world.
So, how does AP Lazer fit into such a scenario? Here are a few reasons:
- The basis of the Tanked TV show is ultra-personalized fish tanks, sometimes even for the rich and famous!
- AP Lazer is capable of engraving a multitude of materials including acrylic. What are fish tanks made of? You guessed it, acrylic!
- AP Lazers’ open architecture is ideal for laser engraving and cutting large items. The Tanked crew is known for creating large scale (no pun intended), out of this world tanks and aquariums.
- Not only does the Tanked team create aquarium tanks, but they also offer pool panels, water features, exhibits for zoos and museums, and custom acrylic projects for top celebrities, luxury hotels and casinos, Fortune 500 businesses, private homes, and millionaire homeowners across the country. ATM takes on more than 200 projects every year with tanks ranging from 50 to one million gallons in size.
As it turns out, AP Lazer is a perfect fit for the Tanked team. Its ability to engrave and cut large pieces of acrylic material makes it an ideal piece of equipment to take their enormous and awe-inspiring tanks and aquariums to the next level.
Owner of AP Lazer, Dr. Tong Li, and a crew of technicians visited the Tanked filming facility in early September to set up the SN4836 laser engraving system and train the crew to operate the machine. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
