Where should you pay attention to laser engraving of rubber for stamps?
Laser engraving of rubber for stamps produces a large amount of dust. This material must be extracted in a reliable and efficient manner and filtered by an extraction system. In particular all dust-sensitive components, such as the lens, mirrors, electronics, motors and shafts, must be protected against this dust by means of an extraction system. For laser engraving of stamp rubber the text must be mirrored and reversed.
Is it possible to cut rubber with the laser?
Absolutely! The laser software offers various options for automatic cutting: round, square or an optimized shape. On request it is also possible to cut bridges, whereby the cutting lines are interrupted by defined points.
Suitable laser machines - CO2 laser machines
For cutting wood, leather, and a large number of plastics, you need a CO2 laser machine. Important things to keep in mind are: what is the maximum size of the object that I want to cut out, that determines the size of your worktop and what is the maximum thickness that has to be cut that determines the laser power you need.
