WHICH MATERIALS CAN BE PROCESSED USING A LASER?

Modern JustLaser Laser Engravers can be used to personalise or customise fan merchandise made from a wide variety of organic materials:

MARKING AND CUTTING WITH A LASER

In laser marking, a laser beam is used to give a surface a permanent inscription. The process is frequently used for personalising or customising fan merchandise and is divided into different types depending on the material:

Laser engraving

In laser engraving, the heat of the laser vaporises or sublimates the material to a specific depth. This produces a permanent, abrasion-resistant engraving.

Annealing marking (black marking)

In annealing, the surface of a metal is heated so much that an annealing colour is formed. It causes diffusion and oxidation processes on the surface. A light-coloured inscription can practically always be achieved on metals. This is achieved through a melting process and / or changes to surface roughness.

Ablation

Ablation is used for all materials that have a topcoat. This is removed using a laser, causing the differently-coloured base layer to come to the fore. For anodised aluminium, the anodised layer is either removed or chemically altered, causing the inscription to appear white / light.

 

LASER CUTTING

Various materials can be cut quickly, precisely and efficiently using a laser. The thermal cutting process creates a particularly exact and fine cut. With plastics, leather and textiles with plastic parts, the laser automatically seals the edges (cut & seal), meaning that the work piece edge is smooth – individual fibres are no longer noticeable. As the process of personalising or customising fan merchandise with a laser is contactless, it is even gentle on delicate materials.

Simple or unusual shapes – with the laser engravers from JustLaser, you can make precise cuts on any material. Different cutting processes are used depending on whether you want to cut metal, plastics, textiles or leather.
