What is plastic?

Plastic is highly durable, lightweight, and resistant to wear and tear, which makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, including packaging materials, electronic devices and household goods.

Why use the laser?

Laser marking is environmentally friendly and cost-effective, it can replace traditional inkjet printing and hot stamping. The laser beam removes material from the plastic surface, creating a contrast between marked and unmarked area. This method is non-contact, fast, and flexible, it can be customized to meet specific marking requirements, such as font size, shape, and depth.

Which machine
should I choose?

The main difference between plastics is the ability of the laser to penetrate the material. Harder plastics such as polycarbonate (PC) and acrylic (PMMA), which are less penetrated by laser energy, are better suited for laser marking and produce deeper, more pronounced marks. And laser energy easily penetrates plastics with softer surfaces, such as ABS and polypropylene (PP). In order to avoid burning the material, only more shallow marks can be formed, and this type of plastic is difficult to process with laser marking.
