Suitability for laser cutting: excellent suitable

Modelmaking is a typical area of application for the laser cutting of polystyrene

Material information for laser cutting of polystyrene:

Polystyrene (PS) is mainly processed with laser systems in form of foils and thin plates or sheets. Applications are for example packaging made of thin foils, or the model making. It is also used in the advertising industry. As an example for this are resistant and especially light plates for signs or the exhibition stand construction (e.g. SMART-X ®). The cutting with the laser happens contactless so that it is possible to cut filigree details. As the material does not need to be fixed, the whole plate or sheet, ultimate edges included, can be processed. Through the expandability of the eurolaser cutter with routers and knives, operators will achieve a very high flexibility in processing here.

Common product names of polystyrene:

PS, Hostyren ®, Vestyron ®, Styropor ®, Hostapor ®, Vestypor ®, SMART-X ®
