Custom Laser Cutting
The evolution of custom laser
cutting has greatly enhanced the methods that are used for plastic fabrication. Plas-Tech is one of the leading custom
plastic fabrication and distribution companies servicing clients across North
America. Plas-Tech is a pioneer in the use of custom laser cutting of plastic
for projects of any size. This includes limited one-off production of
prototypes as well as full scale high-volume production runs of plastic
In order to meet the various
demands of the plastic fabrication industry, Plas-Tech offers the latest in CNC
laser cutting technology available today. This dedication to cutting-edge plastic laser cutting equipment
using state-of-the-art 400 lasers is the foundation behind producing
cost-effective parts that offer the absolute best in precision and quality.
Plas-Tech continues to invest in new technologies in order to meet the ongoing diverse
and ever-changing demands of the custom plastic fabrication and distribution
CNC machining provides an
exceptional level of accuracy and precision. The use of 3-Axis CNC laser cutters offer
a level of accuracy that is second to none with tolerances of +/- 0.005”. This
ensures that projects are completed to specification, on-time and within
Options for Custom Laser Cutting Plastic
A major component of a
successful laser cutting project is the choice of plastic used. Not all types
of plastic are suitable for laser cutting due to the power of the laser and the
tendency of weaker plastics to melt at a faster rate.
The most common types of
plastics used for laser cutting are acrylic, acrylic mirror discs, PETG, ABS
and styrene. The powerful laser cutters that are used today allow fabricators
to cleanly cut hard plastics such as acrylic in thicknesses up to 1”. It is
possible to create 90 degree inside corners as well thanks to the exceptionally
low cutting diameter available with plastic laser cutters. For projects that
require cutting as well as polishing of edges, plastic laser cutting can help
to greatly reduce overall costs by eliminating the need for secondary
polishing. The process of laser cutting vaporizes the plastic in a manner that
creates a beautiful smooth and polished edge.
Laser Engraving and Etching
In addition to professional
plastic laser cutting, Plas-Tech also offers a complete range of plastic laser engraving and
etching services for clients. Plas-tech lasers use digital registration systems
that allow printed plastics to be registered with exceptional accuracy.
Fabricators are experienced in using the lasers to gently melt only the surface
of the plastic to create beautiful printed graphics, signs, name plates and all
kinds of custom engraving projects.
Laser engraving and etching can
also be used for part marking. Part marking is the process of melting a serial
number or part number into a plastic component to enhance the security and
traceability of the parts in a run.
Plas-Tech is dedicated to
meeting ongoing client needs with a full line of brand name plastic sheet, road
and tube materials along with team of knowledgeable professionals available
through every step of the process. Discover the Plas-Tech commitment to quality
for all your custom laser cutting needs.
