    Laser Welding Plastics

    Laser welding of polymers is predominantly carried out as the through-transmission welding process. As most thermoplastic polymers provide a high optical transmittance of radiation in the visual and near infra-red wavelengths, the laser radiation can be applied through a transmitting top layer into the welding plane. The lower joining partner, containing a radiation-absorbing colorant, absorbs the incident radiation, thus generating the required heat for melting and fusing the joining partners. ...

    Marking & Engraving Plastics

    Using lasers to mark plastics causes the minimum of harm to the product while permanently and if necessarily uniquely marking it. The duration of the photochemical application of heat is in the tens of nanoseconds. This is particularly advantageous in the medical industry where delicate pieces need to remain smooth with their mechanical properties in tact. Plastics can also be marked using carbonization, foaming or frothing.....

    Laser Cutting Plastics

    Although plastic is easy to cut with a router, it requires time-consuming hand work afterwards in order to create acceptable edges. Lasers can cut a wide variety of plastics of varying thickness to just about any shape. Quick, clean, accurate and adaptable, laser cutting is now the preferred method for many businesses across a wide range of industries....
