Print & Cut
No damage to the print during laser cutting/nCutting printed materials never fails to pose a challenge for the user. Be it in terms of print quality, the precision of the cut or of keeping the print clean at the cut edge./nWe can ensure perfect precision thanks to our optical recognition system which is why we are focussing on the quality of the cut edge in this test./nLaser cutting printed acrylic:/nAims:
- Smoke-free cut edges, especially on white printed surfaces
- No damage to the print at the cut edge
- Crystal-clear polished cut edges without post-processing/nTest set-up:
- Material: 3 mm acrylic sheet
- Printer: Canon Océ Arizona flatbed printer
- Ink: IJC 298
- Laser system: M-800
- Laser power: 200 W/nResult:
We were able to achieve all our aims in our test. The cut edge shows no smoke residue meaning that the white back remains flawless. The laser cut causes no kind of damage to the applied ink. This means the print remains excellent right up to the cut edge. There is no need for polishing or post-processing the cut edge as the laser automatically achieves the desired smooth cut edge in one pass. We therefore recommend using a laser for cutting printed acrylic. Combined with Canon IJC 298 ink, you will achieve ideal results./nCanon + eurolaser
