laser cutting

Laser cutting is the most accurate way to cut materials with virtually no waste.

Using our pre-processing software, several objects may share cut lines, making the procedure quicker and less expensive for you.

What materials are suitable for laser cutting?

Laser cutting works well with acrylics, polypropylene, foam, MDF, plywood, fabric, and paper-based materials. Our machines can also engrave and then laser cut upon completion of engraving.

The most popular laser-cut substrate at Pantographic is acrylic (Plexiglass or Perspex).

The advantage of utilising a laser to cut acrylic is the superior edge finish when compared to other material cutting methods; the edge of the acrylic after cutting is glossy and flame-polished, requiring no further post-processing.

Acrylic is commonly available in three thicknesses: 3mm, 4.5mm, and 6mm.

These thicknesses are always in stock in clear, black, and white acrylic. Acrylic folding is also accessible if your project calls for it.

Foam is also quite easy to cut with a laser, even thick, low-density foam.

Another type of plastic sheet is Polypropylene, which is quite thin and is used for making stencils for spray painting surfaces that are uneven. Ladder frames and curved surfaces are a couple of examples.

What types of lasers are used for laser cutting?

Four of Pantographic’s nine laser machines are CO2 lasers that can cut the materials listed above. We can handle most file types if you have a design ready to go, or we can create the design for you to proof before production.
