Laser engraving

For advertising signs, door signs, information signs, dataplates, nameplates


What are laminates?

Laminates are especially popular for laser engraving as they are well suited for both interior and exterior applications and available in many colors with different effects. Laminates are often used for signage such as dataplates, signboards, nameplates or industrial markings.

What are laminates?

Laminates are 2- or 3-ply plastics. They are made of a core layer of modified acrylic which has been coated with a thin top layer. The engraving process reveals the color of the core material.


Application examples for laminates

Lasers help you create long-lasting markings and engravings, these durable markings on unusual shapes make your final product interesting and high quality. From a simple rectangular shield to complex contours and signs, production of a single piece or a small series is possible with a Trotec laser system.

Why should I buy a laser for engraving laminates?

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 like mechanical engraving, materials are often clamped in place or fixed with a vacuum. This extra step is unnecessary in the laser production process and saves time and money.
