LASER CUTTING WOOD

Our Thunder Laser’s can be used for a wide variety of wood-cutting applications. What types of wood can you cut? Almost anything!

  • Soft Woods
  • Poplar
  • Fine Wood
  • MDF
  • Cork
  • Balsa Wood
  • Cedar
  • Bamboo
  • Maple
  • Cherry Wood
  • Beechwood
  • Alder wood
  • Birch plywood

How thick of wood you can cut depends on how powerful your laser tube is. Plywood becomes more difficult because of the glue that is in it, which is inconsistent. But with a 60w tube, you can cut around 3/8″ thick materials and with 130w tube you can cut up to 3/4″ generally. We have parameters sheets listed here so you can see what thickness material your machine can cut through.

Laser machines for cutting wood are great because of the intense detail you can create. These machines often compliment a CNC router very well.
