PLASTICS

A dedicated plastics cutting machine is at your service

All plastics cut with a smooth, clean and burr free edge. As the focussed laser beam slices through the plastic, the edge re-solidifies immediately after being vaporised and often a glassy edge is the final result. In particular, acrylic is ideally suited to laser cutting. The typical method of saw cutting, sanding and flame polishing, is all done in one step.
