This tutorial will show you how we used 3mm thick TroGlass to create a custom jig for marking on data plates. Creating a custom jig can be very useful, helping you to provide repeatability, accuracy, and interchangeability during mass production of laser engraved products. Engraving materials are available at Trotec. Browse product line: www.trotec-materials.com
TroGlass 3 mm, but you can use any material to produce this jig.
Create your own design or use our template. Send it to the laser with the recommended laser parameters. The parameters might vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power.
Step 2: Laser process
Depending on the material that you are planning to use for laser processing to create a jig, make sure you are processing it accordingly. Such as masking off your bed, activate the exhaust system or select the laser table.
We used standard laser parameters from JobControl.
