trolase foil laser engraving

Laser engraved trophy label made of TroLase Foil

Learn how you can make an individual trophy sticker with a Speedy flexx and TroLase foil.


Preparation

Required material:

Machine used:

  • Speedy 360 flexx, 80/30 Watt
  • 2.85" lens
  • Vacuum table and honeycomb cutting table

You can produce this sample with any machine of the Speedy family (no fiber laser required).

Tips:

We engraved this sample with the fiber laser, because the design is extremely intricate. Due to the smaller spot size of the fiber laser, we achieve better results. This works only on metallic TroLase foils (silver matt, silver brushed, gold, copper).

With the CO2 laser you can process all TroLase foil materials.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import design

Make your own design or import our template. Adapt it to the size of your trophy if necessary. Then send the job to the laser using the driver settings below:

Process mode Resolution Cut line Halftone Others
Standard 1000 dpi None Color -

Info: When engraving with the fiber laser, always use 1000 dpi resolution. It works best in combination with the small spot size of the fiber laser.


Step 2: Laser process label

Put the TroLase foil into your laser and focus on the material. Then make the parameter settings. Our settings can vary depending on laser machine and laser power available.

Info:

The advantage of the fiber laser is the smaller spot size. Therefore less heat is applied on the material. The foil remains flat and does not bend.


Step 3: Cleaning

Clean the label with a damp cloth. This works best inside the engraving cabinet with activated exhaust.
