Polymers marked and cut by FSL machines

Laser-cut plastics have endless applications. Artists and professionals alike use Full Spectrum Laser systems to cut and engrave a wide variety of plastics. Acrylic is one of the most commonly used stock materials in laser cutting and engraving, finding uses in rapid prototyping, jewelry, and production signage. Other plastics, such as Delrin, are engineering-grade plastics suitable for end- use in industrial machinery. Please know that depending on the type of plastic, some materials can produce smoke and fumes.
