Are All Thunder Laser Machines Capable of Producing High-Quality Wood Projects?

A laser wood cutting and engraving machine is no different than a machine that can be used for metal, acrylic, PVC, MDF, stainless steel and other metal and non-metal materials. It’s simply the same CO2 laser technology built into each of our machines that powers the cutting or engraving capabilities. Thunder Laser cutting and engraving machines are designed and built to excel with wood materials.

Can a laser machine cut wood of all types?

Yes, a laser wood cutter is quite versatile and can work on varying types of woods with different thicknesses and densities. The type of wood and density will control some aspects of your project, such as speed and finish quality. Softwoods such as balsa obviously differ from hardwoods such as oak. Consult the details on your specific machine to determine maximum cutting depths to make sure it’s suitable for your projects.

The effect of a laser wood cutter on a wood material is either brownish or white engraving. To avoid producing dark markings on the wood material during the laser engraving process, choose the low power setting at high speed.

Can you achieve a dark engraved wood product with a laser engraver?

Yes, dark engraving on the wood can be achieved provided the user follows the necessary adjustment on the settings. A test trial can be performed on a sample wood to determine the needed adjustment on the laser beam power to achieve a darker color.
