Delrin laser engraving

for the production of embossing presses

What is Delrin?

Delrin is used for the production of embossing presses. Embossing presses are used by notaries, companies, engineers and government agencies to add relief embossings, in addition to a signature, in order to protect quality documents from being copied fraudulently. Furthermore, an elegant embossing adds a personal touch to stationery and invitations. Whether it is a logo, home address or something creative, there is no limit to the number of possible applications.

What is Delrin?

Delrin is a trade name for the material group polyacetal (POM). This material is highly suitable for laser cutting or engraving because it can easily be removed by the laser beam.  


Application examples for Delrin

Delrin is used in the production of embossing presses. Embossing presses use a positive and a negative relief to emboss paper. The positive relief (male) is created with white letters on a black background and the negative relief (female) is inverted and mirrored. The Trotec JobCreator laser software can create the design of both reliefs automatically to make the creation process easy.

Why should I buy a laser for engraving Delrin?

The laser beam is a universal tool for material processing, so there is no need for tool or grinding costs for milling cutters or drills. During processes such as mechanical engraving, materials must often be clamped in place or fixed with a vacuum. This is not necessary in laser processing, which saves time and money.
