Acrylic / Plexiglass / PMMA

There are many names for it (acrylic, PMMA, plexi) but one thing is certain, acrylic based materials cut beautifully on Kern’s CO2 laser systems. Acrylic is one of the most popular materials used by laser operators on a daily basis. Kern’s CO2 lasers will cut acrylic with a fire polished edge quality. A special lens can be used when cutting thick acrylic resulting in a straight cut edge with only one pass of the laser beam. Multiple rastering techniques can be used to etch a frosty white mark or a clear and smooth engraved look.

A great blog post for acrylic cutting tips was created by our good friends at Jumbie Industries. Jumbie not only does acrylic fabrication but also do beautiful sign making and woodworking.
