The process of engraving wood material by laser engraving machine

Superwave Laser Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Nov 05, 2017

Wood is by far the most used laser processing material, easy to carve and cut. Light-colored wood like birch, cherry or maple is easily gasified and thus suitable for carving. Each type of wood has its own characteristics, some of which are dense, such as hardwood, and use a larger laser power when carving or cutting. Before we suggest carving unfamiliar wood, study the carving characteristics first.

There is not much difference between carving on plywood and carving on wood, but it is important to note that the engraving depth is not too deep. The edges of the bonded plywood will also be black as wood, and the key is that the plywood is made of that wood.

Wood carving
Generally speaking, the engraving on wood is usually vulture, and the engraving depth is generally deeper. This power is generally higher, such as encountering hard wood, which may make the engraving of the image darker. If you want to make the color lighter, you can improve the carving speed and try to carve it a few times. In some wood carving will produce some lampblack is attached to the surface of wood, if the wood has brush paint can it carefully wipe wet cloth, if you do not go up lacquer might not clean, cause product surface soiled.

Wood cutting
The depth of the laser engraving machine cutting wood is generally not deep, maximum cutting depth depends on wooden materials and laser power, such as cutting thick wood, can be cut a little slower, but may cause burning of wood. When specific operation, you can try to use large size lens, and adopt the method of repeated cutting.

After wood carving, there will be a feeling of burning, which is a kind of primitive art beauty with the base color of the wood, and the depth of its color mainly depends on the laser power and the engraving speed. But some of the wood is usually a softer texture, and you won't be able to change the color (birch, for example) anyway. For finished product coloring, acrylic pigment can be used.
