The Application was done with a low power system in the lab. The recommendation for this process would be for a minimum of 100watt laser for projected cutting speeds of 1mm per second.
100-watt laser projected 50mm plus per second.
200-watt laser projected 100 mm plus per second cutting speeds.
This acrylic sample was processed using the SBM 1200M cutting system equipped with a 150 Watt CO2 laser and a 5.00″ lens. The samples were cut using the artwork provided by the customer.
The sample was cut through all 3 layers completely and consistent at a speed of 250mm per second. however, with a smaller focus lens, it is possible to increase its speed up to 300mm/sec. Two protection films (clear and green) produce a great amount of smoke and residue while cutting, which contaminates the sample very strongly. No cleaning was performed on the sample after cutting.
