Can all materials be lasered equally well?
A variety of laser cut fabrics respond very well to processing, such as synthetic fabrics. They often comprise plastics such as polyester. The laser beam melts polyester in a controlled manner, and this provides fiber-free, sealed edges. For organic fabrics such as cotton and linen, a brownish discolored cutting edge is obtained similar to when processing wood. This effect can be partially compensated by selecting the correct lens, laser parameters and using compressed air for your fabrics laser cutter.
