We tested a selection of KROMA® and STUDIOBOARD® products from KOHLSCHEIN GmbH for processing with our laser cutters. In consultation with KOHLSCHEIN, we prioritized the following requirements of the advertising and printing industry:
- Precise and radius-free contours without overcutting, e.g. for POS displays and ceiling hangers with individual, small-scale designs
- Trace-free cutting results even with white cardboard, for use in design and advertising
- Burr-free cut edges for unrestricted further processing and excellent appearance
- Undamaged material surfaces even with ink application or protective coverings
- Efficient production to save time for the user
All tested materials from KOHLSCHEIN GmbH can be cut excellently with a eurolaser machine. We areable to meet all requirements and therefore unreservedly recommend the laser as the optimal tool for processing these display boards. As a processor, you get a completely efficient production process with the best possible cutting quality when using a eurolaser system. As a result, we award the eurolaser certificates for processing with the rating "excellently suitable".
Additional benefits of cutting display cardboard with eurolaser systems:
- Thanks to non-contact processing and vacuum table, no material squeesing or damage to surface edges during cutting, even after the application of ink or protective coatings
- Low cleaning effort thanks to lint-free, dust-free and overall clean processing
- Low tool wear - tool does not need to be changed or sharpened
