Engraving & Laser Cutting Wood

The woodworking is a craft as old as time, and there is a reason that it remains popular even today. There is a certain, rustic beauty to wood which makes it a timeless material of choice for hundreds of applications. Fortunately, laser technology has made it possible for woodworking to be easier, faster, and more accessible to amateurs and professionals alike.

Laser Cutting Wood

In the past, creating custom wood pieces involved the use of a saw, perhaps a hammer, chisel, and a lot of elbow grease. Today, wood laser cutters and engravers are two of the most popular options in the industry due to the versatility, reliability and insane accuracy. Laser technology is used for virtually any category of woodworking: from architecture and furniture to toys and crafts.

Laser Engraving Wood

The processes of wood laser engraving and laser cutting are highly customisable. The laser settings can be calibrated to produce engravings of different depths and contrasts. Similarly, the intensity of the laser can be reduced when working with softwood like pine or balsa, with the higher intensity settings reserved for hardwoods like birch or walnut. We have decades of experience and a wide range of laser engravers perfect for working with wood.

Our selection of wood laser cutters and engravers are made to the highest standards in the UK.

With typically twice the speed and lifespan of competing products, our CO2 based laser cutters and engravers are used globally, from universities, to major suppliers.

All Products

With more than twice the power commonly found in this size of laser cutter, the Blu70 delivers twice the cutting speed and cuts thicker materials more safely. Built to be the cost-effective and flexible solution for business and education alike.

Blu250 is the ideal machine for cutting over-sided parts. A truly massive machine, Blu250 is not suitable for all sites but for heavy commercial or industrial users that are cutting very high volumes, very large parts or very thick materials Blu250 delivers performance and opportunities where flying optic lasers simply cannot.

With its huge 1250x900mm work area and a massive 100w of CO2 laser power, Blu125 is the ideal laser cutter to ensure that almost no job is too large or too long in process time maximising margins, giving the freedom to create more challenging designs as well as increasing the number of users that can gain access to the laser cutter during a single day.

Specifically sized to minimise material waste, the Blu100 is our best selling CO2 laser cutter. Capable of cutting thicker materials (even 18mm mdf in some cases), this laser cutter is robust, fast, versatile and comes with our great 2yr warranty.

Our most compact and affordable CO2 laser cutter, the Blu60 has been specifically designed to pass through a standard door opening (76cm), yet still fitted with our clever lamella bed, 2yr warranty, industrial cooling and PEV certified air quality sign-off on installation.

How does it work?

Laser cutting wood and laser etching wood take advantage of the extremely high energy carried by the laser, which is essentially a concentrated beam of light. The energy from the laser heats the wood material rapidly, resulting in its almost instant vaporisation. Since the energy of the laser is confined within its beam, the material surrounding the target areas remains unaffected and will not show visible scorches or burn marks. Furthermore, since the material undergoes no stress, there is little chance of secondary warping or damage.

Typical uses

Laser etching has been used widely to create outdoor signs, model kits, ornate decorations, engrave guitars, skateboards, pens, giftware, notebooks, baseball bats, kitchenware and much more. The end result is something that looks great and is far more detailed than work done by hand, with marks that stand the test of time. Laser cutting and engraving have made the production of furniture, inlays, and other interior decoration items much easier and faster.

Types of wood

There is a veritable list of wood types and products that can be cut or engraved using lasers: maple, birch, alder, mahogany, walnut, cork, bamboo, plywood, MDF, HDF, and veneer. Lasers can work with both natural wood and composite wood, although adjustments will have to be made to take into account the resin content of most composite wood products.
