Large-format acrylic figures | Laser cutting
Large-scale laser cutting of acrylic
Life-size figures from Perspex® for the Lüneburg Museum
This project illustrates just how well art, culture and our high-tech laser systems go together. The Lüneburg Museum came up with a very special idea for decorating the exhibition rooms. Their request: individually designed life-size figures made of acrylic glass.A welcome opportunity for eurolaser to combine it own core competence with a good cause. Supporting regional institutions has always been a concern close to the heart of eurolaser.
Cutting the large acrylic figures with laser
We used cast 15-mm thick acrylic glass for producing the figures. As some of the figures were to be over 2 m high, we used the XL-1600 or rather XL-3200 laser systems to cut them. The large processing areas of these cutters meant the figures could be cut in one piece from the acrylic sheets
