Polycarbonate front panels | Laser cutting
High demands on processing quality
The ‘white goods’ sector includes household appliances such as washing machines, fridges, dryers and all kinds of kitchen appliances. High-quality films are often required for these electrical devices in order to embed actuators and displays. The printed films are usually back-injected with plastic and thus stiffened.
In the application, we demonstrate how a front panel is cut from polycarbonate using a laser. Particular attention is paid to the openings for switches, controls and LEDs which must be cut very accurately in order to provide a high standard of quality.
