How to laser cut acrylic materials

Acrylics are mostly used in the advertising industry, but can also be used in many other segments of the market. Cutting and engraving acrylics is one of the most used applications of a BRM laser machine and is successful in multiple ways. This is mostly because after cutting or engraving acrylics there is no need to finely polish the material. The result after cutting is fine polished already and makes the process more efficient and productive. Our laser machines are very accurate and precise, which makes them interesting for work that requires some finesse!

Many possibilities with Acrylics

Many things are made possible by using CO2 laser machines. For example, trophies, indoor & outdoor signage and prototyping are worked on by our clients around the world. Within the advertising sector, the machine is mostly used to process offline advertisements by making plexiglass signs and many other things.


Acrylics are one of the main substitutes for glass and have many advantages in comparison with the fragile material. Acrylics are actually thirty times stronger than glass and cuttable while glass can only be engraved! At the same time, acrylics are just as transparent as glass, because of these reasons people increasingly choose acrylics over glass. When processing the material it becomes apparent that the element won’t be scratched and remains clear, even the most precise projects will be unscratched when finished.

Acryl Laser machine

The best machine to use for processing acrylics is our BRM CO2-laser. This laser machine features the right wavelength and power to perfectly process your material the way you want it. With the BRM laser machine, any shape or pattern is easy to engrave, besides the laser power doesn’t reduce power when the machine is well kept and properly taken care of. Opposed to old processes where knives where used which quickly became dull and lost precision. In this area, the use of a BRM laser machine is a great solution to this problem. No design is too complex for a BRM laser machine!
