Laser Cutting Plastics

With the Rayjet laser you can engrave and cut a wide range of plastics. Create neon signs, POS displays, parts for model making or even membrane keypads and control panels. Another typical application is laser engraving plastics with serial numbers and barcodes.

Plastics unsuitable for laser processing

​Some plastics generate gases toxic to humans during laser processing. The following plastic types are therefore not suitable for laser engraving or cutting: PVC, Vinyl, poly dibromostyrene, PTFE (Teflon). To process these plastics we recommend mechanical engraving machines or cutting plotters.

Clean and precise cutting edges

​The great advantage of a Rayjet are the crystal clear cutting edges, which are achieved during laser cutting of plastic. The edges are sealed cleanly, free of smoke residues and flame polished. This saves you time other common processing methods require for post-processing edges. Contact us for more details.

​The Rayjet works in a similar way to an office printer. Send your image file directly from your usual graphics program to the laser. As soon as you have selected the type of material, you can start the laser engraving process. More information about the Rayjet laser can be found on the product page.
