Laser Cutting

Our 100 Watt CO2 Laser Cutting System cuts through most soft materials of up to 15mm thick, including medium-density fibreboard (MDF), plywood, leather, cardboard, perspex, vinyl and all other board products. 

What you need to know about our laser cutter:

  • R5.00/min for students 
  • R6.00/min for public
  • laser cutter bed size is 960 x 610mm (we advise that you make your artwork 950 x 605 max to ensure a clean cut all around – the material is not always perfectly square.)
  • cut lines are vector: RGB red, hairline thickness 0.00
  • engraving lines are vector/raster: RGB blue or black, hairline thickness 0.00
  • file format is pdf, Corel draw, DWG, DXF
  • make sure your material is flat (warped material causes the laser lens to be out of focus which greatly affects the cutting quality)
