2.5D & 3D laser engraving by means of software-controlled removal of material
2.5D and 3D engraving differs from deep engraving in the extent of software-controlled depth removal. This way, predefined edge angles for dies can be realized as easily as complex three-dimensional surface textures / structures on coin minting stamps or applications for mold and die production.
For further examples please see under applications.
Technical 3D laser engraving
In general, it is either very time-consuming or simply impossible to create the structure mechanically, for example by milling, because of the small size and high resolution of the structural elements.
Perfect 3D laser engraving with systems by ACSYS Lasertechnik
3D laser engraving demonstrated in this highly complex application. “Fortuna Redux” is a joint project between ACSYS and the Polish Mint in Warsaw. All of the die tools have been produced using the PIRANHA by ACSYS.
