Laser Cutting Film

Everything you need to know about laser cutting plastic films made of polycarbonate, polyester, PET or polyamide. This is how fast, burr-free laser cutting works.

How you can use a laser machine to cut films.

The laser beam enables the controlled melting of plastic films and ensures clear and perfectly-sealed cut edges. You can use the laser machine to precisely cut the smallest radii and produce simple geometries extremely quickly. With laser cutting, the mechanical stress on the films is bypassed, because the entire process is contactless. In contrast to machining with a punch press or knife, no color splinters from the film during laser cutting. Applications such as membrane keyboards, dashboards, front foils or seals can be produced cost-effectively, with high quality and precision.

The advantages of a laser cutting machine: Faster than a cutting plotter, more precise than cutting dies and more economical for small series of up to 1,000 pieces.
