Laser cutting and engraving: WOOD, PLYWOOD, LAMINATED WOOD, MULTIPLEX,
MDF and VENEER.
At WE LASERS we laser cut and engrave wood, plywood, cardboard with perfectly accurate precision. Laser engraving, laser marking and laser cutting can be accomplished all in one step.
During laser cutting both wood and plywood there is no chipping or other damaging to the material, while cutting extremely fine contours. Not like a wood drill orCNC milling machines, laser cutter is extremely thin.
Depending on the material thickness of the wood may be a typical cutting gap between 0.1 and 0.8 mm. Thus, laser cutting and engraving wood can be accomplishedwith high level of precision.
Depending on material characteristics , maximum thickness that can be laser cut varies from 1/2 in to 3/4 in.
Some applications for laser cutting wood: architectural models, goods manufacturing, gift manufacturing, graphic imaging, packaging, prototyping, awards, signage.
We laser cut and engrave:
ACRYLIC, PLASTIC, POLYESTER, POLYCARBONATE, PET/PETG, POLYETHYLENE (PE)
We can laser cut practically any shape with highest precision: letters, indoor/outdoor signs, a table top, or a plastic toy. Cutting edges are always polished and chipless. With laser cutting we can reach high repeatability and consistent quality.
Mentioned materials are perfect for the processing with the laser. Most common fields of application are the advertising industry as well as the labeling and marking industries. Our lasers are able to process limpid, colored, structured and mirrored acrylics. We also can process both extruded and casted PMMA.
Some applications for laser cutting acrylic:
Laser cutting has become a useful and inexpensive tool for many industries. Among many applications laser cutting especially suitable for architectural models, goods manufacturing, gift manufacturing, graphic imaging, packaging, prototyping, awards. More and more companies choose both laser cut and engraved elements for creating eye-catchy displays and signs.
We laser cut and engrave cardboard and paperboard with high quality and repeatability. These materials typically do not need high laser power for processing Therefore, laser processingcan be done faster and without damaging the cutting edge during the laser cutting.
Application for laser cutting cardboard:
Advertising and packaging are the most popular areas of application for cardboard and paperboard. Due to its flexibility laser cutting process is highly suitable for customized products, production of samples and technical application.
Laser cutting is contactless process. This characteristic makes laser cutting highly recommended for cutting printed, laminated or coated products.
We laser cut and engrave/mark:
PAPERBOARD and TYVEK
As small as 1/10 mm contours can be laser cut with filigree precision and without damage for the original material. It is highly important for printed materials, where precise laser cutting is crucial.
Our lasers are perfect tools for cutting big quantities of paper products, owing to the the fact that laser cutting paper is a fast and flexible process. You can always correct your design after we cut first sample. If needed, we simply make changes in the file and cut a new sample within a few minutes. Thus, our clients can always edit the files before they were processed with no additional charges. It is always an advantage when you are dealing with big quantities of your product.
Some applications for laser cutting paper: architectural models, goods manufacturing, gift manufacturing, graphic imaging, packaging, paper crafts, prototyping, awards, signage.
Laser cut paper envelopes with logo is one of the ways to make your wedding invitation or a mail special. You can customize it with laser cut text, monogram or logo. Laser cutting on envelopes is not an easy task. In order to protect back of the envelope from cutting trough it, we at WE LASERS had to come up with a series of innovative techniques. As a result we can deliver high quality laser cut envelopes with no damaging for the paper. You will be easilyremembered by your clients who received an envelope like this.
WE laser cut and engrave different types of rubber:
NATURAL RUBBER, FOAM RUBBER, SILICONE RUBBER, SYNTHETIC RUBBER
Our laser machines are designed for fast and easy engraving and cutting of rubber. We laser cut and engrave practically any shape with high precision and detailing.
Lasers are extremely suitable for producing rubber stamps with text, logo or complicated design. With us you can make rubber stamps in small or large quantities with your design on it.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can be cut with high precision and quality using our non-laser cutting systems. Due to its large variety, vinyls can be used in a diverse range of applications including sign-making industry and plastic market. PVC foils also are used for decorative and labeling purposes.
We can apply PVC foils on plastic, glass, stone or other surfaces.
Granite or stone can be engraved/marked with extremely high precision and quality. No further processing or cleaning is required after laser engraving process.
Laser engraving can be done with up to 1200 dpi quality (jpg,png, or other raster formats). Our laser cutter software also allows us to engrave vector files (ai, dxf and others) without rasterizing them.
Rock or stone is a solid aggregate of minerals. It includes stone types such as marble, granite or natural stone. When laser processed outstanding engraving results can be reached on the surface of such stone. Smooth, polished and flat surfaces are ideally suited for laser engraving, laser marking and laser lettering.
Laser engraving and marking granite or stone can be used in an interior or exterior
decoration. It istypical for decorating kitchen surfaces (floors, counters) or individual decoration projects (portraits, logos, letters).
One of the most important qualities of laser cutting textiles is that it does not damage or distort the original material. During the cutting(especially with synthetic fabric), cutting edge gets sealed and no additional work is required. This particular effect of sealing makes all processing after laser cutting more effective and easy.
Minimum width of a cut should be no less then 1.5 mm, because during the process material is melted on through the absorbed laser energy and partly evaporated immediately. It can cause partial loss in small shapes (smaller then 1mm).
Synthetic felt (polyester) can also be marked or engraved with how precision and quality.
This technology is particularly advantageous for discreet lettering as the logos, images, letters etc. appear tone-in-tone on the engraved material. That is why colored materials are particularly suitable here as the contrasts can clearly be seen after embossed deep engraving.
Some of the advantages of laser cutting and marking textiles:
Very fast with no material distortion
No fading of the design during washing
Cutting and engraving possible in one operation
Laser cutting both natural and synthetic leather is a very precise process with no damage or distortion for the original material.
Using traditional mechanic tools (knife-cutter), the cutting of resistant, tough leather causes heavy wear. As a result, the cutting quality decreases from time to time. While the laser beam cuts without having direct contact with the material, it will still remain unchanged. Therefore, the cutting quality will stay constant during the whole period of laser cutting.
Benefits of laser cutting leather:
Precise and very filigreed cuts
No material deformation by stress-free material supply
Cutting edges without fraying
Melding of cutting edges regarding synthetic leather, thus no additional work required before and after material processing
Contactless laser processing
Constant laser cutting quality
Lamination with a special masking tape can be used to eliminate even slight discoloration during laser cutting or engraving.
Natural and synthetic leather are used in various industries such as clothing, shoe making, furniture manufacturing and others. Owing to its high precision and repeatability the laser cutting has become one of the well trusted tools for these industries.
Some applications for laser cutting leather: goods manufacturing, gift manufacturing, graphic imaging, packaging, fashion.
Lasers can be used for marking and etching on metals.
Many types of metals can be engraved and marked with high precision
Metals suitable for laser engraving and marking:
titanium, titanium alloys
