True-to-contour cutting of printed acrylic

Laser cutting of photo-prints

Acrylic is popular in visual communication due to its high versatility. As an advertising sign or in sign marketing, it generates attention or conveys information. Printed acrylic is increasingly used for this purpose. This achieves an exciting depth effect with brilliant motif or photo prints using advanced printing techniques such as digital printing and can be produced in different sizes and thicknesses. The print-on-demand trend is increasingly confronting converters with individual customer requirements that simply cannot be realized by many tools. We explain why the laser cutter is best suited for processing printed acrylic.

The objective in processing

Printing creates completely new challenges for acrylic processors. Gentle processing must take place in which neither the material itself nor the ink is damaged.

Requirements for cutting printed acrylic:

  • Contour-accurate cutting for every print contour
  • Completely non-contact processing so that material and print remain undamaged
  • No smoke development and/or color change on the print
  • Automated process for greater production efficiency
