Lüneburg, Germany – The trend toward high-quality, multifunctional smartphones with touch screens is still on the rise, with the practical function of telephony playing only a minor role. Good Internet surfing functionality, high-resolution cameras and practical apps are the features that are often of decisive importance for today’s clients. Many people can no longer imagine life without this little helper.
It is not surprising, therefore, that these small personal treasures need to be protected against soiling and damage. Added to this is the increasing desire for individuality that results in an ever growing demand for personalized protective cases. Fashionable design paired with practical functionality – protective cases are a good solution here.
An example is a mobile phone case made of bamboo marked with a personalized motif. Bamboo, a material that is both widespread and widely used in Asia, is now becoming more and more popular in the western hemisphere. This mobile phone case was engraved economically on the QuickMark laser system from EuroLaser within a few seconds.
Laser engraving is unbeatably fast, producing fine contours despite material grain, with relief effects achieved by using different laser powers. The laser process requires no clamping so there is no work piece damage.
Bamboo is a fast growing, grass-type woody raw material of great cultural, economic, and ecological importance, found in its natural form in Asia, North and South America, and Australia. Due to its high stability, the comparably light bamboo wood can be put to any number of uses and is therefore a vital basic material for a large number of people.
As a raw material, bamboo is used for the manufacture of furniture, the construction of houses, for scaffolding and for the production of textiles. It is also the basis of other biological materials. Even music instruments can be made of bamboo. Bamboo is also interesting from an energy point of view. Bamboo is often the basis for pellets or charcoal. Thanks to the use of plant extracts, it is even used as a raw material in the production of cosmetics and personal care products, giving it a wide range of possible applications.
