Different materials – different approaches
Working with a wide variety of materials is no problem for the Speedy 400 Flexx, even more with acrylic glass and alluminium, which are the two most important materials in the automotive industry.
At SPS Technik, the TroGlass acrylic glass is formed by laser cutting (with or without bore). Here it is important to set the text mirrored, as this is later covered with acrylic paint on the backside.
Anodized and ceramic-coated aluminum is ideal for extreme conditions. For this purpose, the desired dimensions are cut with gate shears, and any bores are punched. The workpieces thus prefabricated are inserted into a stencil, and finally the top coat is ablated down to the ceramic by laser. Thanks to the laser engraving, the writing emerges in white and clearly legible for the completed signposting.
