Illuminated external signage/nExternal signage comes in many different forms, and a wide range of colours and materials are used. Individuality and recognition are required anywhere where a retail business, restaurant or doctor’s surgery e.g. needs to attract attention.
Eye-catching, individual design is required in order to stand out and attract attention, particularly in heavily-frequented areas such as shopping malls and busy roads./nThis example shows a combination of lasering and milling./nThe base plate of the sign is made from Dibond®, an aluminium and polyethylene compound. This material is particularly outstanding because of its light weight and weather resistance. It was milled using the Zünd R45s-P20 tool head. The inscription is made from acrylic material and was cut on the same system using the CO2 laser./nYour benefits at a glance:/n• Use of milling cutter and laser in one system
• More choice of materials
• Extremely fast tool changes (from milling cutter to laser)
• Easy actuation from the same file
• Precision cutting
• Other mechanical tools can be used (knives, diamond wheels and many more)/nIn order to give the sign particular emphasis, it is backlit. This reinforces the visual stimulus and highlights the inlaid acrylic material. LED's, which are being used with ever-increasing frequency in advertising, provide a long-lasting and low-cost solution in this case. Enhancing the sign with lighting effects draws more attention and sets the scene perfectly.
