Lumenal invest in laser machine

After a fantastic year of growth, Lumenal, LED lighting specialists have taken delivery of the biggest laser-etching and cutting machine in the UK.

Installed at their factory in Manchester, the laser machine has a 3m x 1.5m etching bed featuring the ability to cut and etch organic materials such as glass, acrylic, wood and much more.

This investment will allow Lumenal to design and make their own light guide plates for the production of illuminated graphic display panels, edge-lit shelving, custom-cut acrylic signage and assist with the manufacture of many more products.

Using their own custom software to control the machine, Lumenal will be able to improve the consistency and efficiency of producing laser-etched products due to new methods of manufacture now being available. All light guide plates will now be produced in-house which Lumenal hope will also help to significantly reduce lead time.

The machine is most commonly used in Television Screen manufacture, meaning Lumenal's light guide plates will produce optimum light coverage (ensuring no blackspots) and output.
