With a laser engraving machine, it is possible to produce custom-made stamps and seals. This equipment is fast and precise ensuring cutting out the smallest patterns.

The first thing that Wattsan experts recommend paying attention to is what material is planned to be processed. Seals are made of special 2-3 mm thick rubber. It should be soft enough for the printing to be as detailed as possible. For stamps, thicker material is chosen.

The second important criteria to be taken into account when choosing a laser engraver is the volume of production per day.

Selecting a model for single-unit and mass production of seals.

Depending on the model, Wattsan machines are equipped differently. Thus, the Wattsan 0203 micro comes with roller guides. A ball touches a guide rail only at one point, which explains relatively low travel speed of the working table and not very high performance. The Wattsan 0503 is equipped with linear guide rails, and its travel speed and ability to withstand heavy loads is higher.

If your task is to produce a small number of items per day, then the Wattsan 0203 is the most suitable option for you. This equipment provides high quality results and is quite cheap. It is one of the most budget-friendly models on the modern market that is characterized by an ideal ratio of price and functions.

The model is designed for home use or small workshops. The 200×300 mm (7.87×11.8 inches) working area size allows working with workpieces of A5 (148×210 mm / 5.83×8.27 inches) format. The machine is easy to adjust, and you do not need special training to operate it. Positioning accuracy is 0.05 mm.

In case of mass production of seals and stamps, we recommend to look at the laser engraver Wattsan 0503. The main difference from the previous model lies in professional kinematics. The machine is designed for continuous operation due to 3-phase stepper motors in combination with linear guides. These units are included in the basic complete set of the model.

Like many other machines of the brand, the Wattsan 0203 and the Wattsan 0503 are universal equipment that can be used for both engraving and cutting. Thus, even if the main task of the owner is to engrave, it can also be used for laser cutting, if necessary.

Mass production 

For mass production, one will need a laser machine with an even higher capacity. The Wattsan 1290 Duos is a quite good option.

The main feature of the machine is 2 laser heads that work synchronously and symmetrically. This means that the machine is capable of machining two workpieces at the same time. Thus, production speed is automatically doubled. Note, that the same layout is required for both workpieces. The working area is divided into two parts with one workpiece being machined in each of the parts. 

Laser engraving machines for stamp production

As it was already mentioned, thicker rubber is used for stamps. This means that the engraving depth is greater. Thus, the power of the laser tube should be higher than that of the one used for producing seals. Another important point is that stamps are engraved in several runs. This should be noticed when choosing a laser engraving machine.

How to improve engraving quality?  

When machining rubber items, you should take into account a number of peculiarities of processing this particular material.

  • Preparing the layout in mirror image. For this, there is a Horz Mirror button in the RdWorks software of the machine.        
  • Single-directional engraving. This function is started using the X_urilateralism button in the control program. In this case, a laser head moves only in one direction, which also improves the quality of the result. The effect is achieved by reducing impact force on the workpiece and the number of touches of the laser beam. This allows you to work with the soft texture of rubber without damaging it.
