WHAT IS LASER CUTTING
A laser processing method involves focusing and heating the material’s surface such that it melts and precisely cuts through the material into your desired design.
BENEFITS OF LASER CUTTING
✓ It is extremely versatile and can be utilised on several different types of organic and inorganic materials, including wood, MDF, textiles, cardboard, paper, metal foil (up to 0.5mm), acrylic and much more.
✓ It is a reliable, efficient and cost-effective process that delivers a result of substantially higher quality and output than the traditional technique, such as CNC cutting.
✓ It is a safe cutting technique that requires no direct contact. It requires no cutting tools as the material will burn or melt through. Thus, there is minimal wear and tear to the equipment during the cutting process.
✓ The laser technology makes it possible to achieve the finest motifs and geometries of any shape with maximum precision. Virtually everything that can be drawn can be cut using a laser.

DISCLAIMER ON LASER’S SUITABILITY WITH PLASTICS
An important disclaimer to note: not all plastics types are recommended for laser application procedures. Common plastics such as acrylic, PMMA and POM are highly-utilised plastics that are great for laser application. Others, such as PVC and polycarbonate, are not. Cutting ill-suited plastics will result in dangerous gases or dust, which will harm both the operator and the machine itself as they can be a source of corrosion. Hence, be aware of the types of plastics that you should avoid when using laser applications to prevent premature degradation of the laser equipment, and also in maintaining the work safety and health of the personnel in operation.
Materials you should not process with a laser are namely the following:
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) (Laser processing produces dioxin!)
- Carbon Fibres (Carbon)
- Polyvinyl butyral (PVB)
- Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE / Teflon)
- Beryllium Oxide
Other materials include those that contain halogens (fluorine, chlorine, bromine (e.g. flame-retardant material), iodine and astatine), epoxy or phenolic resins.
