Covid-19 Signs

Make signs from Trotec materials

Our new tutorial offers templates for the quick and easy creation of Covid-19 signage using various Trotec materials and your laser engraving machine.

Wash your hand's sign - Variant 1

Materials required:

Wash your hand's sign - Variant 2

Materials required:

Keep your distance sticker


Laser engraving machine used:

  • Speedy 300
  • 80 watts
  • 1.5" lens
  • Aluminium cutting grid table or honeycomb cutting tabletop

This sample can be produced with any other Speedy laser engraving machine.

Tip:

When working with TroLase or TroLase Foil, if you are using the entire work surface, a vacuum table or an adhesive mat can be used so that the material lies flat over the entire surface. Otherwise, cover the work surface with paper to create an optimal vacuum.

Step by Step

Step 1: Import/Create Print & Laser Template

You can either use our pre-made template or create your own design files. Use the settings below to send the job to the laser.
Important: If you use TroGlass Reverse, the file must be mirrored.

inner geometries first

Step 2: Laser engraving and cutting

The next step is to create the parameter settings. Our suggested parameters will differ depending on the laser engraving machine used and the available laser power. Before processing the TroLase and TroLase Foil sheets the protective foil should be removed before placing it into your laser. If TroGlass Reverse is used, we recommend removing the foil after laser processing.

Step 3: Assembly

To attach the parts to each other, first remove the protective film on the back of the blue TroLase shield. Now stick the TroLase label onto the yellow TroLase or the white TroGlass Reverse label according to the markings.
The signs are now ready for use!

These signs can be produced in any colour material.
