Rubber engraving for stamp making

Rubber engraving for stamp making

The laser can be used to engrave texts in the smallest fonts, logos with fine details or even pictures directly into the rubber. With a Trotec laser system, you can create stamps in an efficient, inexpensive, simple and environmentally-friendly way with the highest precision to produce clean, detailed, quality imprints without chemicals.

Rubber types suitable for laser engraving

  • Laser rubber
  • Natural rubber
  • Synthetic rubber
  • Microporous laser foam
  • Oil resistant laser rubber
  • Silicone rubber
  • Foam rubber
  • Odorless rubber


Application examples for rubber engraving


With a laser you can quickly and efficiently process rubber at little cost; whether you are producing a single piece or an entire rubber plate, you can significantly reduce production times with automated processes. That is why stamp engraving with laser devices has become the standard method of choice in stamp production. Furthermore, the laser is suitable for producing laser-engraved printing forms made of rubber for flexographic printing.

  • Sign making
  • Office and school supplies
  • Arts & crafts
  • Digital printing
  • Flexographic printing
  • Rubber-based printing plate production

Why should I buy a laser for rubber engraving?

With a Trotec laser system, you will be able to produce series productions and single peices in an efficient, cost-effective and flexible manner. Texts, logos, photos or images with fine details are no problem for the system capabilities. With this laser system, you can take the layout directly from your graphics software to the material. Additional support materials, such as films and matrices are no longer necessary. Features integrated into the JobControl® laser software, such as the automatic stamp making process, make stamp production very easy and shorten your manufacturing process.
