LASER ENGRAVING WOOD

Natural wooden products are widely processed using the laser which is capable of producing two different effects by using either a high or a low power output. The low power method is used to mark just the surface of the wood with a dark branding effect meaning a very high level of detail can be achieved making it possible to engrave photographs on woods like cherry and rosewood.

 

The High power method actually cuts into the surface of the wood or MDF which can then be colour filled with enamel paint to produce products such as signs or memorial plaques and details can be added to existing products like picture frames.

Both above methods can be used to either engrave the details directly to the material or the background can instead be engraved away causing the details to be seen in relief.
