Wood is by far the most commonly used laser processing material, it is easy to engrave and cut. Light-colored wood like birch, cherry or maple can be well vaporized by the laser, making it more suitable for carving. Each type of wood has its own characteristics, some dense, such as hardwood, engraving or cutting, we must use more laser power. We suggest that before carving less familiar wood, we must first study the engraving characteristics.
Laser engraving wood creates additional value through personalization and precision. Make each piece unique by engraving logos, names or images into your products. A precise laser cut creates custom-fit parts with a tenth of a millimeter precision even for fine shapes. Non-contact processing saves time and lets you process the thinnest materials.
