Application Examples for ‘Consumer Electronics’

‘Consumer electronics’ is a word used to describe things like iPhones, iPads, Tablets, etc. The housing of these devices is usually made of a coated plastic or anodised aluminium. Mobile phone cases are typically made of wood, leather, textiles or different kinds of plastics. Depending on the material that you wish to mark or engrave, you can use either a CO2 or a fiber laser. During the engraving process, depending on the laser power being used, a varying amount of the top layer is removed from your material. This creates different kinds of contrasts. Please keep in mind that it is not possible to cut metals or anodised aluminium with a laser machine.

"What I can say is that my business is built on Trotec – and I couldn’t be happier. So far, I have had no complaints about any aspect of my experience with Trotec, from the machine itself, to the Trotec staff I deal with on a regular basis. The fact that Trotec laser engraving machines are manufactured in Austria, suggested to me the equipment would likely of the highest quality construction."
