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.

How does the Rayjet laser engraver work?

​The Rayjet works in a similar way to an office printer. Send your engraving 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.
