LED Lighting Panel Manufacturing with Lasers
Incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes are still widely used in many lighting applications. However, commercial lighting has progressed over the years to allow for the brightest and most efficient lighting possible using LEDs. The benefits of using LED lighting are vast. LEDs emit more light per watt than your standard incandescent light bulb and do not require a filter to switch between multiple colors. Their small design allows for LEDs to be concealed and used with many products where previous lighting could not.

Within this new technology lasers have successfully found their niche. Acrylic sheets can be laser etched resulting in frosty white lines on the surface of the panel. The ultra-small design of the LED lights allows for them to be placed in long rows and snapped onto the edge of thin plastic sheets. When turned ON, the light will catch in the laser etched portions of the panel allowing for large areas to illuminate all at once. Reflective tape can be applied on the edges that do not have a LED strip attached. This tape will divert the unused LED light back into the panel enhancing its glow. Filtering materials such as thin semi-transparent Mylar are also available, which can be placed over the sheet to display a completely illuminated acrylic panel.
The most obvious benefit of using a laser to etch LED panels is the fast processing speeds which results in production of full size panels in a matter of seconds. The versatility of a Kern laser presents the ability to control the depth at which the panels are etched as well. The laser pulse frequency can be adjusted resulting in a dotted line or a solid fill line on the acrylic panels.
