With our Laser Cutter we can offer a high quality, polished finish straight off the machine in thicknesses of up to 40mm. The 400w laser is capable of cutting highly intricate patterns in sheets of up to 3 x 2 metres. Laser Cutting is a non contact form of machining that uses a highly focused laser beam to vaporise the material as it cuts, leaving behind a clean flame polished edge - particularly on Acrylic panels.

Our laser is also capable of etching (rastering) over the full 3 x 2 area. Using this technique we can etch photographs or company logos into the surface of the acrylic we are cutting.

The laser cutter is ideal for cutting out point of sale acrylic items as the cut item is immediately ready for bending therefore bypassing the need for any secondary finishing such as scraping and flame polishing.
