CW-1390 Wood MDF cnc CO2 acrylic laser engraving cutting machine
Wood cutting and engraving are two of the most popular applications for the laser because they can encompass so many different projects. From cabinetry to photo frames to knife handles, Chanxan Laser systems are used in almost every woodworking category you will run across. Whether you are working with hardwoods, veneers, inlays, mdf, plywood, walnut, alder, or cherry, you can engrave amazingly intricate images with a laser system.
Main wood types suitable for laser processing
|Soft woods||Soft woods such as poplar or balsa can be cut and engraved faster by using a lower power level. The engraving process will produce less contrast if the wood being used is lighter.|
|Hard wood||Hard woods including cherry or oak are typically denser, which will require higher power levels for engraving and cutting. Compared to soft woods, this type of wood will offer more contrast when engraved.|
|Coniferous woods||Coniferous woods such as fir or larch are not suitable for laser engraving because of its hard density and uneven grains. The surrounding wood ("non-graining") is quite soft on the other hand, which makes it rather difficult to find optimal laser parameters.|
|Veneers||Veneered wood consists of real wood on the surface, so it is able to be engraved similarly to solid wood panels.|
|Plywood||Plywood is composed of typically three or more layers of wood, with grain that is glued and pressed at a 90° angle. Plywood is offered in various types including a wide range of color, texture, and thickness. The glue that is used to manufacture the plywood is important for laser processing, especially when cutting the material. Select plywood panels made with white-glue, or that is otherwise marketed specifically for laser processing.|
|MDF (Medium density fiberboard)||MDF is a uniform wood-based material composed of finely defibrated, mainly bark-free, softwood, which is gently pressed in the transverse and longitudinal directions. The surface and edges of MDF are typically firm and smooth, which makes it ideal for laser cutting and engraving. However, it should be noted that the cutting edges become very dark during laser processing.|

Tips for laser cutting and engraving wood
Does laser cutting wood cause burning?
Yes. However, laser cutting wood is a sublimation process and is often considered highly desirable. Laser cutters offer accurate focusing, customized selections of the appropriate parameters, as well as use of suitable optics and compressed air supply for cutting and engraving of the highest quality.
Can all woods be laser processed?
Since wood is a natural and organic material, laser users must evaluate a number of parameters including density and resin content prior to processing. For example, soft woods such as balsa will require less laser power, and cutting can be completed more quickly. On the other hand, hardwood which is typically a dense material will require more laser power. We recommend using compressed air for processing MDF since it consists of wood fibers that are glued.
Will the laser engraving always become dark?
Laser processing wood can result in a brownish-coloration on the material depending on a variety of factors. However, when processing varnished wood utilizing the appropriate settings can avoid this issue and a white engraving can be achieved. We recommend using a very low power at a high speed for this application
Can dark engraving be achieved?
Yes. Defocusing the laser beam to about 0.5-2 mm will result in the laser spot becoming larger, and the power density is then reduced. Some details may be lost in processing, but this method will produce a particularly dark engraving and we highly recommend trying it for thes types of applications.
Should there be smoke in the processing area?
Laser processing wood is a sublimation process, and since the material is solid it is converted directly into a gaseous state from combustion.
