CUTTING PAPER AND CARDBOARD WITH A LASER

Similar to wood, the laser cutting of paper and cardboard is done through sublimation. In this process, the paper is instantaneously vaporised, which produces a fine cut. Thanks to a table extractor, the addition of air and the right laser parameters, even the finest materials can be processed ideally – without any errors or anything burning.

FINISHING PAPER AND CARDBOARD

In addition to cutting paper and cardboard, the laser machines from JustLaser are also used for print enhancement in order to make surfaces more interesting and give them a “certain something”. There are the following distinct processes:

  • Laser perforation: in this process, tiny holes are made with the laser to produce a special look and feel on the paper or cardboard.
  • Laser punching: in this method, the material is vaporised using a laser to produce a precise cut – similar to
  • Laser marking: in this process, the heat of a laser produces a high-contrast change in the surface of the material

THE BENEFITS OF JUSTLASER CO2 LASER MACHINES

Materials of any kind can be processed directly using the CO2 laser machines from JustLaser. In contrast to common methods like punching, there is no material crushing as the process of cutting paper and cardboard with a laser is contactless. Additionally, materials do not need to be fixed in place, which provides the material with additional protection. However, it is recommended that you buy a vacuum table so that uneven materials will also lie flat on the table while being processed.

Detailed precision cuts and the finest patterns can be produced better with the laser cutters from JustLaser than with any other method. For precise results that provide you with all the space you need to live out your creative ideas! Create your designs in your usual graphics program and send it to your JustLaser Laser Engraver via print command for immediate prototype or serial production.
