EXAMPLES OF NON METALS WE’VE LASER CUT:

• A leading automobile manufacturer offers a vehicle option with or without fog lamps. For the fog lamp model Laser Expertise cuts an elliptical hole into the polypropylene blank to create the fog lamp housing.

• A series of interlocking complex MDF panels. The accuracy of slots and the sharpness of internal corners allow a perfect assembly fit with minimal gluing. This unit forms the internal structure of a high specification studio speaker system.

• Several small multicoloured panels are screen printed onto a larger acrylic panel thereby saving on print costs. The individual panels are separated by laser cutting and any additional holes or designs required are profiled at the same time.
