Laser engraved door mat

Step by step instructions

Personalize regular door mats with your Trotec laser for them to quickly and easily gain more value.


Preparation

Required material:

  • single-colour door mat

Machine used:

  • Speedy 400, 120 watts
  • 4" lens
  • Vacuum table

Any machine within the Speedy laser engraver series can be substituted, depending on the size of your door mat.

Tip:

Because of the thick texture of the door mat, a lens with a long focal length is used to compensate for its unevenness.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import design

Create a design of your own or use ours.

One finish, send the application to your laser machine using the following settings: 

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 333 dpi none
Halftone Others
Color -

Tip:

Because door mats are generally seen from a distance, a lower resolution can be used to cut down on production time.


Step 2: Engraving the door mat

Place the door mat in your Trotec laser and use the below parameter settings. Recommended settings may differ based on the laser machine used and the laser power available.

Laser parameters engraving:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
black Engrave CO2 80 100 500
Passes Air Assist Z-Offset Advanced
1 ON 4mm -

Tip:

Because door mats are usually seen at a distance, a resolution of 333 dpi is enough.
