BOSS LASER APPLICATIONS

WOOD ENGRAVING

Get Started Wood Engraving


Wood is an attractive material to laser cut or engrave due to good surface discoloration as well as the increased depth compared to other materials. Grayscale images and photos look beautiful when etched into most hard or soft wood surfaces.

Boss Laser machines are ideally suited for laser engraving or cutting wood. Lasers offer the woodworking, and interior design industry greater precision, creativity, and efficiency with their custom design wood creatives. Whether you want to etch a wedding photo or engrave a custom award plaque you're limited only to your imagination.

WHAT TYPES OF WOOD ARE POPULAR FOR CO2 LASER ENGRAVING OR MARKING?

  • balsa wood
  • maple wood
  • cherry wood
  • poplar
  • hickory
  • red oak
  • Veneer
  • cedar wood
  • beech wood
  • medium density fiberboard (MDF)
  • exotic hard or solid woods
  • natural wood
  • alder wood
  • plywood
  • coated masonite

The good news is that unlike CNC machines that necessitate programming knowledge, laser machines allow you to design and print with almost any number of graphics software on the market such as CorelDraw or AutoCad.

HOW THICK OF WOOD CAN I LASER CUT?

Softer wood types such as balsa wood require a lower laser power and can in turn be cut at higher speeds. Whereas dense, hard woods will require more power. Generally speaking, CO2 lasers of 50 watts are capable of cleanly laser cutting thru 1/4" wood in a single pass and up to 3/4"+ with 150 watts.
