Most plastics will laser cut…

However there are some serious limitations with regard to Health & Safety. Although we have the best extraction and filtration systems available we still limit the plastics we cut to the ones we know are relatively safe. These include Acrylic, Polypropylene, Polycarbonate, Nylon, LDPE / HDPE, HIPS and Mylar. The list is not exhaustive, but gives you an idea of the range we stock and cut. Edge quality of laser cut plastic is, on the whole, excellent – for example we can laser cut acrylic with a polished edge to give a finished component with no secondary polishing required. Typical applications range from Point-of Sale systems to engineered components.

Effects of Thermal Cutting Cut edge quality varies by type, but on the whole is excellent. There can be stress raisers formed in the cut edge with certain materials.
