Wood Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is utilised to make precise cuts, marks and engravings on a variety of materials. These include metal, acrylic, rubber, composites and a host of others.

Laser wood cutting opens up to a number of possibilities, both for personal and commercial purposes this is the perfect way to get your plywood cut to size in Melbourne.

Two ways of wood laser cutting

Carbon dioxide lasers work well for almost every type of project. Whether it’s cherry, walnut, maple or any other type, these types of lasers suit all wood laser cutting requirements due to the varying power options available. 

Diode lasers come in three variations, red, green and blue. The red diode is the weakest one while the blue diode is the strongest in power. Diode lasers are usually suitable for markings due to their overall power limitations. Although some lasers would be able to cut wood, these would be thin and/or soft. Even so, the blue laser is still powerful enough to damage the human eye at a distance.

The Difference Between Plywood and Simple Wood

Simple wood is cut directly from the tree, while plywood is manufactured by gluing wood composite and veneer sheets together. This results in low-cost and highly versatile materials – plywood is easier to work with than simple wood, and it is easier to achieve plywood boards that cover a large area.

This is why so many people opt for plywood across a variety of projects. Get your plywood cut to size in Melbourne with Advanced Cutting Technology.

How to Use a Laser to Cut Plywood

Laser technology directs a highly-precise beam that is used to cut through the plywood. As the plywood is both lightweight and stable, it cuts easily without harming the material’s structural integrity. There is also no actual contact between the cutting device and the wood, which means there is no wear or tear around the cutting area.

Complex cutting are made possible thanks to laser technology. Customers can realise their project designs with ease and with no need to compromise on the finished result. At Advanced Cutting Technology, we’re here to help you along that path. If you need plywood cut to size in Melbourne, get in touch with us today.

The wood laser cutting service you need

There’s more than one way to laser cut wood. If it’s a softwood sheet like Pine, you could opt for flat sheet or profile cutting, better or better known as 2D laser cutting. Here, a series of mirrors and lenses direct a high energy light beam into the cutting surface of the material. Any residue after the laser beam is struck is blown away from the cut with a gas stream. For jobs like plywood laser cutting, 2D laser cutting may suit you well.
