The clean machining and processing of a wide variety of materials can be used to advantage in the design, manufacturing or processing industries. For example, laser cutting cast acrylic produces a crystal-clear cut edge, while with textiles, the edges are sealed by the heat of the laser beam. Laser cutters are also used to produce unusual indoor and outdoor signs, advertising displays, models and decorative items for industry, architecture and the textile and advertising sectors.
