Engraving Plastic (Polyethylene)

Just got an order from a local gym to engrave plastic jumprope handles made of polyethylene with the logo. Does anyone have any recommendations for settings? Can this material be engraved?



From past searches it looks like it melts very easily so you’re going to be looking at fast/low power. I cut a sheet once and it made ridges around the cut and took a few passes - I didn’t save the settings though.

This Google Sheet has some settings as well, but in the end I think you’re definitely going to have to test!


So helpful, thank you!
