In the sign and display industry, business owners are always on the lookout for new and more cost-efficient ways to produce graphical shapes on a wide variety of materials. They also commonly keep an eye out for ways to produce total aluminum signage as time-efficiently as possible, and other metal products, as these are used more and more to meet their customer’s requirements.
In response to this search for ingenuity, companies that make laser cutters have been hard at work developing new machines and methods for producing parts including total aluminum signage. The advancements they have been making, with new kinds of laser cutting solutions have ended up resulting in higher production capabilities, as well as increased process and system flexibility for those looking for an all metal cutting solution. But, in the grand format market, needs are much more limited and alternative capabilities using a router are both sufficient, and allow for a single system to handle more of the PSP’s workload
Let’s take a deeper look at the process that must be undertaken to perform significant metal cutting with a router cutter vs. a laser.
