NOTE: Any CO2, fibre, or flexx™ laser from the Speedy series can be used for this project.

Tip

Although metallic TroLase materials can be processed with a CO2 laser, we recommend using a fibre laser because it is capable of engraving minute details with greater clarity.


Step by Step

Step 1: Configure the Design and Send the File to JobControl®

Create your own design, or use our template (available below) and resize the graphics as needed. Use the following JobControl® Process Options in the Print menu:

Process mode Resolution Cut line Halftone Others
Standard 1000 dpi None Color -

 

NOTE: If you are using a Speedy flexx/fibre system, ensure to select a 1000 dpi resolution. Combined with the precision of a fibre laser beam, a high design resolution will offer optimal processing results.


Step 2: Process the TroLase Metallic Plus Sheet

Place the TroLase sheet on your laser's work area, and ensure that the material is in focus. Next, enter the parameters specified below in the JobControl® Materials database window. 

Process the sheet in the following order:

  1. Engrave
  2. "Scratch effect" cut
  3. Kiss cut
  4. Cut

NOTE: The exact parameters may vary depending on your laser system and its wattage.

Step 3: Clean the Material

Wipe the processed TroLase sheet with a damp cloth. So that the material may dry more quickly, keep the sheet on the laser's work area with the exhaust system enabled.
