Acrylic , also known as PMMA or Plexiglas® , is a clear, rigid, unbreakable, UV-resistant plastic material that belongs in the thermoplastic family.
Its strength and resistance require a smooth and non-cutting result. Forget the other methods, and discover Plexiglas® laser cutting!
Develop clean finishes and shiny edges with laser cutting! Plexiglas® laser engraving and cutting machines with laser machines since this material is transformed into the result of heat.
Laser cutting is not only accurate, but also preserves the aesthetics of PMMA sheets as the laser beam passes through the Plexiglas® to cut it. Proper programming and usage of the machines will allow you to obtain an optimal result, which will not require any alterations.
The combination of power, speed, frequency of use, and the choice of a suitable optical focal length, allows a deep cutting of this material. The Gravograph laser engraving and cutting machines will allow you to cut up to 1 inch thick (approx 25.4mm)!
The depth of laser cutting and engraving depends on the lens used. Gravograph is always in search of performance and quality . We have designed a wide range of focusing lenses from 3.8 to 10 cm . These lenses are developed for our two-dimensional solutions, which are machines that are specialized in engraving and cutting projects, and which are specialized in marking .
Gravograph's expertise extends to the software used to control its machines. The Gravostyle ™ comes standard with our laser machines. It allows you to save pre-settings or predefined parameters. The user can even set and save their own devices.
As Acrylic melts under the heat effect of the laser, the air support system equipped machine in our marriages the temperature at the point of impact on the material in order to guarantee an optimal rendering.
Acrylic laser cutting fumes and particles, which must be extracted and filtered. A smoke and debris extractor system is essential to optimize its surface condition. These optional systems are part of the Gravograph approach. The LS1000XP and other machines have a smoke extractor, which is placed under the machine to save space .
The LS1000XP's table is equipped with cutting blades which will limit its contact between the material and the cutting media.
Be safe and discover our cutting tables (Honeycomb gold repositionable pin holders), that considerably Reduce the reflection effects of the laser beam.
Acrylic is used in many applications, including:
Expand your field of action with the Print & Cut solution, which provides you with optimal printing and cutting results.
This solution is the result of a combination of two technologies , UV flatbed digital printing and laser cutting . With ease, get great results over a wide range of applications such as promotional gifts, trophies, signs, signage, etc.
Plexiglas® is perfectly customized to this solution, and will allow you to create beautiful creations.
With 80 years of experience, Gravograph has developed suitable for temperatures ranging from -40 to 80 ° C.
Gravograph offers you many types of acrylic products :
|name||Surface finish||Number of colors available||Number of thicknesses available|
|Gravoglas ™ 1||18||3|
|Gravotac ™ Exterior||14||3|
Acrylic reacts precisely to laser cutting, but let's not forget its compatibility for rotary engraving. The IS8000IQ rotary engraving machine is the rotary solution for acrylic engraving.
