AcrylaThins Settings?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone engrave on AcrylaThins?

http://www.acrylastone.com/acrylathins.cfm

 

I have tried reaching out to their company to ask about suggested settings but they have not answered. There is no information on their site as to settings or tips. Has anyone used this product and, if so, do you have any suggestions?

 

Right now we are running it with clear, sticky-back plastic over it on the steel setting, 2x. Then we are painting over it with outdoor acrylic before removing the plastic. There has to be an easier and quicker way to complete this product.

Got It!

 

Running an AcrylaThin plate on a 25W laser with success:

 

1. Run the whole piece on the steel setting 2x:

 

Power = 80

Speed = 60

Pen Mode = Rast/Vect

PPI=500

DPI=500

 

2. Run the Logo alone on the steel setting:

 

Power = 80

Speed = 60

Pen Mode = Rast/Vect

PPI=500

DPI=500

 

DO NOT TOUCH THE ENGRAVED LETTERS OR IMAGES.

Smudging will occur and have an effect on the final product.

 

3. Spray the piece with Lazer Dark Clear Finish Coat(JDS #LDK200 if in US).

Let dry.

Repeat 2-3 times as needed.

 

Tested on:

 

Lasers:

NewHermes Incorporated Vanguard Laser 2001 - 25 watts

Gravograph LS800 - 30 watts
