In addition to our 5′ x 10′ CNC flatbed router cutter, Bay Imagery also offers laser cutting and engraving services for more specialized applications.
The laser is perfectly suited for cutting dimensional letters and shapes from cast acrylic. Virtually any vector outline, not exceeding the table size of 18″ x 24″, can be sent to the laser for cutting. The laser beam will follow cutting paths very precisely, normally not varying more than .001″. Moreover, the heat generated by the laser beam will render the cut edges of most cast acrylic to appear as if they have been polished.
We can also print and mount a design to a substrate such as acrylic, poster board or wood, then precisely contour cut the design using the laser. This method is ideal for instances involving logos, custom colors or specialty design themes.
For specialized marking or labeling applications, the laser can easily engrave most acrylics, wood, leather and many plastics. Perfect for applications such as identification plates, nameplates, name tags, desk plates, door signs and architectural signage to name a few.
Etching anodized coated aluminum is also a task the laser handles extremely well. Anodized aluminum provides for a professional and custom look and custom blank pieces are available in many shapes and sizes ready to mark with a laser. The laser simply burns away the anodized layer exposing the aluminum color underneath in producing a clear and legible marking.
Clear cast acrylic also marks well using a laser. The etching process produces a very nicely contrasting white frosted appearance. A technique used extensively in the awards industry for personalizing custom plaques and ornaments.
