Material Laser Cutting & Engraving

Every year customers share requests for new materials they want to laser cut and engrave. Laser light will easily find its way through clear plexiglass as well as translucent and opaque plastics. Interestingly, many opaque materials that do not allow light through such as dark wood, cardboard, blackened steel, titanium can laser penetrate with ease.

How do you polish cut plexiglass with a laser? The intense heat from the focused laser beam will polish the edge of the profile as it slowly moves around the cut.
