Application Types: Rubber

Rubber can be processed by CO2 lasers in a variety of ways.  Rubber sheets can be ablated to create rubber stamps, holes can be drilled in silicone teats for baby bottles, and windscreen wiper blades and door seals can be cut and drilled for the automotive industry. Texture can be added to shoe soles by ablation or scribing the rubber, producing an effect which is both decorative and functional.

    Rubber ablation & texturing

    Rubber ablation & texturing Textures and patterns can be produced by ablating material from the surface of a rubber sheet, or by scribing the surface. Laser processing allows intricate designs to be created, including text, logos and graphics for rubber stamps, for example. Special laser-friendly rubber is available for this purpose, which produces virtually no…
