Follow these quick tips to engrave a perfect rubber stamp.

  1. When creating the text plate, the image/text must be inverted and mirrored so that the impression is readable.
  2. The engraving depth of stamping should be about 1.1 mm for a good impression.
  3. Laser engraving of rubber requires relatively high laser power to achieve a certain level of productivity. The more power that is used, the faster the engraving.
  4. Use a 1.5-inch lens for stamps with delicate details.
  5. Efficient extraction with activated carbon is important to remove dust and absorb odor. If large quantities of rubber are to be laser engraved, a pre-filter can be installed between the laser and the extraction system to reduce the filter cost.
