Custom rubber stamps are something CNCROi.com has lots of experience doing and our Trotec Laser Speedy 400 flexx’s parent company is actually the largest stamp manufacturer in the world, Trodat!
The rubber we use to make custom rubber stamps is optimized for stamps, they are so good we actually use it for our hot metal stamping process as well! Stamp making is a messy process which is why you need a powerful machine with plenty of air going around to quickly extract the vapors.
It’s interesting how our Austrian CNC Trotec Laser can anneal even the hardest of metals, yet at the same time, create incredibly precise and defined stamps without any losing any detail on either material.
The white soot you see on and around the stamp is easily removed, it’s all that’s left after being vaporized by our CO2 laser.
You can see the depth and precision we are achieving, these stamps, like the delrin seals we can also make with the same laser, are good for thousands of impressions if you take care of your stamp between applications.
After the custom rubber stamp is engraved, it’s cut out of the rubber so that it can be easily affixed onto a solid backing, either a piece of wood or whatever else you want.
Of course, the above stamp isn’t going to work very well, it needs to be reversed engraved! So, let’s make another custom rubber stamp the RIGHT way.
Reverse engraving is required for stamps for the same reason you see AMBULANCE reversed on the front hood if you are looking at it directly and not through your rear view mirror.
The results are identical to the first, we can make custom rubber stamps of any size, detail and complexity onto a host of substrates to rubber to solid wood… it all depends on the application you have in mind.
After a bit of quick cleaning, the rubber soot on these custom rubber stamps goes away and reveals the original rubber we had in the first picture at the top of this blog post.
Taking a look at this from another angle, you can see these custom rubber stamps are perfect and ready for daily use! The added advantage of getting a custom rubber stamp made by CNCROi.com is that you can have more than one made, identical to the others, of your custom design so if you are more than one person doing the stamping, you don’t need to share but can each have your own… individualized with your name even! Custom is a beautiful thing!
