Laser cutting and engraving are two related processes that involve the use of a high-powered laser beam to cut or engrave various materials. Laser cutting involves cutting through a material to create precise shapes or patterns, while laser engraving involves etching designs or text onto a material’s surface.
Laser cutting works by directing a focused beam of light onto the material, which heats and vaporizes the material along the path of the beam. This process creates a clean, precise cut that is typically more accurate and consistent than other cutting methods. Laser cutting can be used to cut a wide range of materials, including wood, metal, plastic, and fabric.
