Different materials – different approaches
Two of the most important materials in the automotive industry are aluminium and acrylic glass. These require different processing methods, making a Speedy flexx laser machine the ideal choice for laser processing.
SPS Technik produce acrylic glass by laser cutting. It is important prior to processing to make sure that the text is mirrored as it is later covered in acrylic paint on the reverse.
Ceramic-coated and anodised aluminium are ideal materials for use in extreme conditions. Prior to laser engraving the material is cut to the desired dimensions using gate shears and any bores punched. The laser then ablates the pre-fabricated material down to the ceramic. On this material laser engraving produces clearly legible white lettering for use on the completed signage.
