Rubber stamp manufacturing with laser engravers

Laser engraving machines for rubber stamp production play a crucial role in the area of rubber stamp engraving. Largely automated processes reduce production times significantly, thus increasing productivity of text plate engraving.

Save time when laser engraving rubber stamps

With laser engraving machines from Trotec, you can manufacture rubber stamps in just a few minutes and also streamline series manufacture considerably. The Trotec JobControl software and the rubber stamp embossing program JobCreator provide comprehensive support for the process. These programs ensure easy and time-saving production of rubber stamps.

Why Trotec

Components of the highest quality

[] Trotec laser machines are designed for intensive use over many years. Therefore, we only use components of the highest quality from our own production and from leading manufacturers that ensure reliability and a consistant high quality.

Keeping an eye on time and costs

[] With the job time calculator, you can calculate the anticipated engraving and cutting duration even before starting the laser. This makes production planning and the calculation of your engraving and cutting costs easier for you. In addition, the Trotec software records the jobs you have completed, thus making future calculation as easy as child's play.

Made in Austria - a safe bet

[] Trotec laser machines are designed and built in Austria. All components are compliant with the standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001, CE and TUV. In addition, our machines fulfill laser safety class 2. Operators are thus optimally protected.

Matching complete systems

[] At Trotec, all components perfectly compliment each other: the laser engraving machine, laser rubber material and the exhaust system. Make your selection from a wide range of laser systems for rubber stamp production tailored to your requirements. Additionally our partner company Trodat offers rubber stamps for a wide range of applications.

Multi Color Impression

[] The unique Multi Color Jet allows you to produce multi-color stamps in an automated process. The production of rubber stamp text plates and pads is both easy and clean.

Optimal laser machines

[] Trotec laser machines are perfectly designed for rubber stamp laser engraving. Due to the InPack-Technology, our flatbed lasers are designed to provide protection from dust for all dust-sensitive components, such as optics, mechanics and electronics - low-maintenance operation over many years is thus guaranteed.

"We are extremely pleased with our decision to go with Trotec, they have transformed the way we work and over the last few years have contributed significantly to our increase in productivity and profit."
- Colin Cousins - General Manager of Stamps Direct -
"Excellent service from the Tech Department at Trotec Laser and a follow up call from James to make sure we are getting on okay! It was a pleasure doing business with you, long may it continue."
- Michelle Tobin - Owner of ​Smile Heart Kiss -
"We decided to go with Trotec because the other competitors just weren’t as good. Using engraving has meant we’ve gone from having a three hour-long process to a five minute one. We’ve even started expanding into other areas now, like name badges."

Tips for engraving stamps

How to make a stamp?

When creating the text plate, the image/text must be inverted and mirrored so that the impression is readable. The Trotec laser software JobControl® provides an automated stamping process that performs these steps automatically. In addition, the software supports generation of so-called shoulders as well as automatic cutting settings to achieve a clean impression.

What engraving depth is needed in order to obtain a clean impression?

The engraving depth of stamping should be about 1.1 mm for a good impression.

What laser power settings should be used?

Laser engraving of rubber requires relatively high laser power to achieve a certain level of productivity. The more power is used, the faster the engraving.

Which lens should be used for stamp engraving?

Use a 1.5” lens for stamps with delicate details.

What are links?

When the function “link” [Stege] is activated in the JobControl® software, small connecting bridges between the laser-engraved and -cut text plates are automatically generated. You can thus clean the entire DIN A4 stamp plate and then simply break out the individual text plates.

Lasering of rubber produces a lot of dust. Does this shorten the service life of the laser device?

Trotec lasers are perfectly designed for laser engraving stamps. Thanks to the InPack Technology™, our flatbed lasers are designed so that all dust-sensitive components such as optics, mechanics, and electronics are protected from dust, ensuring long-lasting, low-maintenance operation.

What type of extraction is needed?

Efficient extraction with activated carbon is important to remove dust and absorb odor. If very large quantities of rubber are to be laser-engraved, a pre-filter can be installed between the laser and the extraction system to reduce the filter cost.
