How to create rubber stamps?
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 rubber stamp engraving?
Use a 1.5” lens for stamps with delicate details.
