Tips For Laser Engraving And Laser Cutting Wood
Posted by maria vidal on April 30th, 2022
Type Of Wood That Can Be Used
For you to start laser engraving or laser cutting wood, you need to choose a plank of good wood. Because wood is a natural material, numerous properties such as density and resins content must be taken into account during processing.
As a general rule, the better and more even the laser engraving result will be the more consistent the coloration and texture of the wood.
Soft wood such as Poplar, Hard wood such as oak, Confirious woods such fir, Veneers, or plywoods, can all be used for good results.
Engraving And Cutting
As a general rule, laser engraving on hard woods will generate dark markings, whereas laser engraving on soft woods will produce light marks. And for the brighter the laser cutting edge, the drier and more resin-free the wood.
Things To Remember
It is easily eliminated after laser processing. Application tape is ideal for larger-area laser engraving and laser cutting.
The lower the focal length of the lens, the finer the details. The longer the focal length of the lens utilised, the thicker the material.
Dust and gas are eliminated more quickly, and laser cutting quality is greatly enhanced.
