Plastic processing via CO₂ laser
eurolaser constructs high-performance laser systems for plastics
Ultra-high precision and contactless cutting makes CO2 laser systems an optimum tool for plastic processing. Compared to machining with sawing or milling machines, workpieces do not need to be clamped. This means that even filigree details can be cut, and breakages and waste are kept to a minimum. The material is vaporised, meaning that there are no chippings, which in turn minimises the amount of cleaning.
What are the benefits of laser cutting in plastic processing?
- Laser cutting of extremely fine, virtually radius-free contours
- No clamping or fixing of the workpieces necessary
- Less breakage and waste because laser cutting is a contactless process
- Burr-free edges – no reworking
- No chippings – so no cleaning of area around the machine necessary
- No tool wear – consistently high cutting quality

What are CO₂ laser systems used for in plastic processing?
One of the core markets for the laser systems is companies processing acrylics who, in many cases, manufacture displays, labels and lettering. An even bigger market is that of cutting plastic foils. The automobile industry, front panels for household appliances and keyboard foils all play a leading role here. Another trend in the use of laser cutting systems has been identified over the past few years. The textile market is developing exceptionally strongly. This includes technical materials such as filtermediums, through to plush fabric for the toy industry.
