In recent years, laser cutting has become the most frequently used technology to perform high-quality cutting of non-metallic materials. This method ensures the most accurate contour of products cut from a variety of materials such as acrylic, Plexiglas, PVC, polystyrene, rubber, fabric, cardboard, and veneer, among others. Of course, to achieve high-quality product using these materials, it is not only necessary to have access to the appropriate equipment but to also have the support of professional staff who follow established material processing procedures. At Laser Cutting Plus, we have everything you need for laser cutting Plexiglas, opaque plastics, and fabrics, using CO2 lasers.
Laser cutting of PVC achieves a minimal cutting thickness of 0.1 to 0.2mm, while yielding a perfectly flat and smooth end surface without any additional processing, making it a particularly popular service in the advertising industry. It is important to note that when PVC of larger thicknesses is used for laser cutting, the end surface acquires a brown tint that brightens with time. By adhering to established rules and procedures, it is possible to achieve a clear and smooth cut when laser cutting Plexiglas and acrylics. To ensure a smooth cut surface, acrylic laser cutting should be carried out without the supply of compressed air. The process of laser cutting of acrylic accelerates with the addition of air, acquiring a surface roughness that is not always desirable.
