CO2 laser systems are ideally suitable for the cutting and engraving of paper, cardboard and paperboard. They are characterised by very high precision and can even cut the smallest contours. Due to the contactless machining of the laser beam, the sensitive material will not be damaged
Laser cutting Plywood and MDF boards
Plywood consists of several sheets of wood, glued one on top of another, alternating the wood grain on adjacent layers. Assembled around a central plate, there is always an odd number of plies. Plywood and laser cutting go hand-in-hand. Laser cutting is precise and allows you to draw extremely fine curves.
Laser, with its high level of flexibility and fast processing capacity, is the perfect tool for producing architectural and miniature models.

Laser cutting used to be reserved for haute couture designs. But as consumers began lusting for the technique, and the technology was made more readily available to manufacturers, it's become commonplace to see laser-cut silk and leather in ready-to-wear runway collections.
Another benefit is that one method can be used to cut many different materials, like silk, nylon, leather, neoprene, polyester and cotton. Also, the cuts are made without any pressure on the fabric, meaning no part of the cutting process requires anything other than the laser to touch a garment. There are no unintended marks left on the fabric, which is particularly beneficial for delicate fabrics like silk and lace.
