What is a laser engraving machine for wood

A laser engraving machine for wood is numerically controlled equipment that can apply high quality engraving on wood-based materials, such as plywood, MDF, chipboard, cardboard, and solid wood.

Laser wood engravers most often refer to a laser wood machine with carbon dioxide, i.e. CO2 laser source.

It is noteworthy that this laser engraving machine for wood can process not only plywood, MDF, chipboard, and other wood-based materials, but also the following materials:

  • Plastics (acrylic, PET, ABS, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, and others);

  • Rubber;

  • Fabric;

  • Leather and faux leather;

  • Stone;

  • Ceramics;

  • WOOD

Simple and intuitive operation. Laser engravers for wood work on a CNC (numerical control) basis; all laser movements follow a set programme. All you need to do is prepare an image in a vector editor (you can use pre-made images), adjust the speed and power, and start the process. It takes 1-2 hours to learn the basics of using a laser wood engraving machine.

High quality and repeatability. Thanks to CNC (numerical control), laser engraving machines ensure consistently high quality products with minimum possibility of rejects. A properly configured laser wood engraver produces a 100% repeatable product.

Working with a variety of materials. A laser wood engraving machine works not only with plywood and wood but also with many other materials. This expands the range of possible products. For example, you can engrave on leather, plastic, glass or stone, as well as combinations of these materials.
