HSC Milling Advertising Plastics

High-speed machining of PMMA, PC, PETG, and much more

20 years ago, the company history of KURIOS Laserprodukt GmbH began with processing of advertising plastics. Although we continuously developed, products made of PMMA, PC, PETG/APET, etc. are still part of our everyday business.
In today’s advertising competition, signets and displays made of plastic help you to stand out and directly reach target groups. Here, advertising plastics and their various looks can be a huge help. Glossy, reflecting, or textured surfaces are just as catchy as brilliant colors. When these perfectly finished materials trigger and emotional response to the advertising presence, the customer’s favor is easily won.

Quality standards play a decisive role throughout the course of manufacturing. Therefore, all CNC systems are programmed using the same CAD/CAM software. In doing so, we efficiently prevent any interface problems and are able to ensure optimal results, even when combining different operations.
A complete exchange of 3D data is just as given as programming according to templates or samples. That and our CNC-controlled machines enable us to achieve tailor-made solutions and quality at the highest level.
If you are looking for a service provider to unconditionally rely on at all times, we will be happy to process your request.

Advertising plastics are widely spread

Besides advertising, trade fair construction, shopfitting, interior design, and the signage industry, many of these materials are used in mechanical engineering as well as the food and packaging industries.

Advertising Plastics

  • PMMA (Plexiglas®):
    temperature-resistant from -20°C (-4°F) to +80°C (+176°F), feasible in many colors and highly transparent, weather-resistant, easy to process, perfect laser processability
  • PC (Makrolon®)
    very high impact strength, approved to be used in food contact applications, optimal light transmission, good machinability, limited laser processability
  • PS (Empera®)
    temperature-resistant from -40°C (-40°F) to +80°C (+176°F), high mechanical strength and rigidity, good scratch resistance and hardness, easy to process, good deep-drawing material
  • PETG, APET (Vivak®, Axpet®)
    fire rating B1, high impact strength, highly transparent, good machinability, limited laser processability, very good thermoformability, physiologically harmless
  • PVC rigid foam (Simopor®)
    very light, very easily machinable, suitable for printing, can be painted, suitable for bonding, good chemical resistance
  • Aluminium composite (Dibond®, Hylite®)
    low weight but high stability, very good machinability, suitable for printing, can be painted, well malleable, many decors available

CNC milling of advertising plastics – important details summarized

Depending on the advertising plastic’s physical characteristics, it can be milled by adding cooling lubricant, cold air, or completely dry. When cooling lubricant is necessary, e.g. for thread cutting, we will apply what is called “minimum quantity lubrication”.
These CNC-controlled machines allow for precise cuts and contours, matte edges, and processing material thicknesses of up 200 mm. To program these systems, we are able to read and process virtually all data exchange formats.
  • Maximum size:
    2,000 mm x 3,000 mm
  • Minimum material thickness:
    0.5 mm
  • Maximum material thickness:
    200 mm
  • Maschine: Flachbettfräsen, Portalfräsen
  • Further processing offer:
    2D and 3D laser cutting, 5-axis simultaneous milling, laser welding, laser marking, thermal folding, turning, hydraulic folding, and Heli-Coil
  • Further processing offer:
    2D and 3D laser cutting, 5-axis simultaneous milling, laser welding, laser marking, thermal bending, turning, hydraulic bending, and Heli-Coil
