Perfect plastic plate engraving with a laser

Cut and engrave laminates, plastics and much more with JustLaser engravers

ENGRAVE PLASTIC LAMINATES WITH A LASER

Modern laser machines from JustLaser are ideally suited to processing laminates. The material can be engraved particularly effectively. The following applies: the thinner the top layer, the quicker it can be removed. The benefits of engraving plastic laminates with a laser are obvious: even elaborate and delicate details can be produced with this contactless method, allowing you a completely new level of flexibility! The result is a precise, permanent label without damaging the surface in the process. The laser engravers from JustLaser provide perfect results for every order!

LAMINATES: FLEXIBLE AND VERSATILE

Laminates are materials which are made from several (plastic) layers glued together. The core is often made of acrylic and is covered with a thin top layer. Laminates are available in variety of colours and surface structures. If this top layer is removed by a laser engraver, the core material beneath it emerges. Laminates are particularly versatile and can be used flexibly both inside and outside. If you want to use a laser to engrave plastic laminates, JustLaser has the optimal technology!

WHICH LAMINATES ARE MARKED USING LASER ENGRAVERS?

As a number of laminates can be processed using a laser, the range of applications for plastic laminates engraved with a laser is large. The flexible materials are frequently used as a base material in sign production. Permanent, abrasion-resistant and weather-resistant labels and inscriptions can be produced on them. Unusual shapes and contours and creative inscriptions can also be produced and thus you can individualise your products to successfully stand out from competitors. Whether it’s individual pieces or larger margins – the efficient laser machines from JustLaser convince in every respect! The following components are frequently marked using a laser engraver:

ENGRAVING PLASTIC PLATES WITH A LASER

The laser engravers from JustLaser are easy to use. Similar to conventional standard printers, laser engravers are controlled digitally. You can make the designs you want easily in your usual software as the JustLaser technology can be integrated into nearly any Windows-based software – e.g. AutoCAD, Adobe or CorelDRAW. The laser software automatically chooses the optimal laser parameters for you, which not only simplifies the working process a lot, but also leads to perfect results.

ENGRAVING LAMINATES THROUGH ABLATION

There are three different processes in laser engraving, depending on the material and requirements: (1) ablation, (2) annealing and (3) foaming. Coated materials like laminates or anodised aluminium are always processed by ablation. In this process, the top layer is removed, and the different colour of the base material creates the requisite contrast for the inscription. When it comes to engraving plastic laminates with a laser, even small details can be engraved quickly and easily in difficult-to-reach places. Furthermore, the contactless method ensures consistently high quality for individual and serial production.

THE BENEFITS OF ENGRAVING LAMINATES WITH A LASER

With the laser engravers from JustLaser, you can engrave plastic laminates with a laser quickly, efficiently and cheaply – and you don’t need to change tools or retool when producing various inscriptions. You’ll be surprised by the special high-contrast, heat-resistant, acid-resistant, permanently abrasion-resistant and fine results! In addition, a wide range of different laminates can be used for laser marking.

There are no limits for you in the design process and when it comes to realising ideas and designs: Photos can be produced on laminates, just like barcodes, logos and a variety of lettering!

Laser engraving is a particularly cost-effective process. In contrast to alternative methods, no costs are incurred for maintenance or tool wear, or for a variety of consumable materials (chemicals, inks, etc.).

YOUR BENEFITS WITH JUSTLASER

When it comes to engraving plastic laminates with a laser, you can rely on efficient laser machines from JustLaser and benefit from a relatively low investment risk and low set-up costs in comparison to conventional technologies. It’s actually more economically efficient for many companies to invest in a laser engraver of their own instead of hiring external manufacturers to engrave materials. The relatively low productions costs, the high throughput speeds and the number of automation functions and configuration options make the laser engravers from JustLaser a sensible investment for any business. The flexible technology is suitable for a broad range of materials, meaning there is a large range of different possible applications.
