Plywood laser machines can be used for manufacturing:

Wattsan equipment is a guarantee of reliability and high quality. We have a wide range of the best laser machines for plywood.

Why it is important to choose a high-quality laser machine for plywood

The large number of manufacturers’ offers on the market is quite confusing for buyers. How to select a laser machine for plywood and make no mistake? Low price is attractive, but it is important to remember that the production cost of a quality laser machine cannot be low. Therefore, buying such equipment is always risky.

Our managers recommend paying attention to the optimal price-quality ratio. Machines from reliable manufactures are always equipped with proven components, which eliminates the possibility of downtime.

cutting plywood with laser

Plywood is a wood material that is produced by assembling sheets of peeled veneer. The material has its own characteristics, which only quality equipment can easily adjust to. For example, machines with cheap and low-power laser tubes cannot cope with cutting thick plywood. In some places, material might not be cut through. Also read wood cutting machines.

If the built-in blowing system is of a low quality, soot and carbon deposit may occur. And it is considered a product failure. Complex laser engraving of plywood requires high precision of the machine. Many factors affect the quality of the result:

  • vibration resistance;
  • positioning accuracy;
  • co2 laser tube power;
  • correct operation of the controller, etc.

How to choose a laser machine for cutting and engraving plywood

laser engraving plywood

Experienced users do not get confused by the range of laser equipment on the market. But what about novices? Especially for them, we have compiled the most important criteria for choosing a laser machine for plywood.

Laser tube

laser tube for cnc machine

It is one of the most important components of the machine that determines the power of the emitted laser energy. CO2 laser emitters are used in Wattsan laser machines for plywood.

Plywood is a material that has various thicknesses. Therefore, it is recommended to choose the power of the laser tube according to this parameter.

The necessary power is calculated according to the following “formula”: 10 W for 1 mm of plywood. The most common thickness of this material is 4-6 mm, but sometimes it can reach up to 40 mm. Therefore, for small production, 60 W is quite enough.

Working area

The choice of working area size depends on the material dimensions. Plywood is supplied in large sheets that can be pre-cut into smaller pieces. To process plywood without pre-cutting, medium- and large-format machines with the working area from 1200×900 mm are most suitable. For the production of small items, desktop laser machines with the dimensions from 200×300 mm will be enough.

When processing plywood, it is also important to pay attention to the maximum height of a laser head. The recommended value is 15-20 cm.

Air compressor

When machining plywood, one of the most common problems is the appearance of soot at the product’s edges. This is caused by insufficient blowing power. For cutting plywood, we recommend 1.5-2 atmospheres.
