What sheet thickness can be cut by acrylic cutting machine?

The maximum thickness that various laser types can cut through acrylic varies, largely depending on the laser tube’s power. Because the thickness of acrylic that the laser can cut depends on the laser tube’s power.

The table below shows the highest thickness of acrylic sheets for laser cutting that can currently be cut with a single laser cut using the Thunder laser machine:

What are the common parameters for thunder laser cutting acrylic?

The acrylic substance itself has an impact on the cutting outcome. Local variations due to variations in origin, batch, production process, etc. may exist even for acrylic for laser cutter sheets of the same thickness. So it eventually affects the cutting effect.

The following parameters can help you as a guide. You can do a Small-scale testing first to fit the parameters for a particular usage.

Which acrylic cutter machine is suitable my project ?

The NOVA and ODIN series can both cut and carve acrylic overall. without  doubles,the ODIN series can produce more exceptional results in sheet carving thanks to its extremely fast processing speed and precise laser control no worse than laser engraver for metal. Although the ODIN machine is outstanding, the NOVA series has more benefits in sheet metal cutting. And That will thanks to its greater laser power and processing platform (even through doors) . To put it another way, based on the focus of your acrylic laser cutting and engaving job, you can select a model that is more appropriate.

When cutting acrylic, it is simple to start a fire if the blowing value falls short of the appropriate amount. With this in mind,the first thing to remember is that to prevent a fire, follow these instructions.


1.  Modify the blowing value to lower the material cutting seam’s temperature and prevent igniting from a high temperature.


2.  how to laser cut acrylic at home to avoid fired? When using wet tissue, the humidity of the tissue can be used to lower the temperature caused by the evaporation of water vapor during laser cutting, achieving the goal of not easily catching fire.


(textured paper, wet paper, and kitchen paper can all be used, but even after the previous work is finished, it is still important to make sure that people pay attention to the acrylic cutter machine to avoid catching fire).

Tips for acrylic laser cutting and engraving

Acrylic laser cutting and engraving is excited, but it may cause some trouble If you don’t pay attention to the use process. For example,laser energy used for acrylic laser cutter can passes through the material and strikes the honeycomb platform before being reflected back to the acrylic’s back by the metal mesh plate on laser machine working. Undoubtedly, it will result in damage and the formation of redundant and glaring marks on this occasion.But don’t worry ,Thunder laser team can help you avoid thorny bushes to make a excited acrylic artistic work.

How to repair laser damaged skin or avoid?

Since it is brought on by laser reflection, lowering reflection will help to reduce this trace.


1.  Wet paper towels can be used to cover a small area in order to reduce the reflected radiation and safeguard acrylic.


2.  It is possible to cut large areas of acrylic by utilizing other tools, such as nail boards, to frame the acrylic as a whole. This prevents damage to the acrylic and lowers the energy reflected by the laser during the reflection phase.


3.  To cut acrylic, place it on the blade. The blade can ensure that there is as little laser reflection back to acrylic during the cutting process as feasible because it is more sparse than the honeycomb board. It is not recommended to cut too small pieces when acrylic laser cutting; instead, focus on cutting from the inside out.


4.  Increase speed, cut power, and decrease the amount of energy reflected back per unit of time while optimizing processing settings.

How to polish acrylic edges?

Cutting acrylic can cause cut surface stripes to develop, which reduces the roundness of the cut surface. You can experiment with increasing power and decreasing speed to see if you can make the acrylic laser cutting edge smooth. The cut surface becomes more rounded the greater the power, slower the speed, and more energy pulses the acrylic itself receives. (however, thickness of the machine and material must still be taken into account). Also, you can view the movie to learn more how to polish acrylic edges.

How to store acrylic ?

Most important to avoid exposing boards to direct sunlight, heat sources, or moisture while storing them. Store them at room temperature in a ventilated, dry location is a good choose.


Ranked second important is that before using the board, leave the protective film on since static electricity can cause daily dust and grime to stick to the surface of the board. In addition,the shielding film shields the board from scuffs and abrasion as well.


Last one is also often overlooked and the acrylic sheets for laser cutting should be kept naturally flat in storage to prevent warping. It is advisable to store the board at a little inclination and add a support underneath if vertical storage is necessary.

How to avoid deformation of acrylic products?

How to remove acrylics protective film efficiently?

1.  You can use the hot air lever of an electric hair dryer to continually blow back and forth on the film on the acrylic board to better peel it off. Because the film can be readily pulled off after it has relaxed. To avoid deforming the acrylic laser cutting plate at that location during the hot blowing process, do not pause at the same spot for a prolonged period of time.

2.  To better rip off the film on the acrylic board, you can also clean the surface with a cloth dipped in liquid gasoline. After approximately an hour, the film will weaken and be easier to tear off.
