Laser engraving and laser cutting acrylics (plexiglass)
CO2 laser systems are extremely suitable for cutting acryl (only chlorine free synthetics can be used). Some examples from the numerous possibilities are: production of light or neon advertising, nameplates, displays, toys. In addition, the edges are right away smooth and transparent, which means that polishing with an electric arc isn't necessary anymore which enables you to cut more complicated shapes you cannot reach with an electric arc.
While cutting acryl, the result depends on multiple factors. First of all, the material itself (cast or extruded PMMA) and also the applied CO2 laser system and the capacity of the laser cutting machine.
The advantages of cutting acryl with a CO2 laser system versus the more common procedures:
• higher cutting speed
• higher flexibility
• contact-less and tool-less process
• clean, perfectly smooth cutting edges
• easy to operate
• very economical, even with smaller amounts
