Make the most of your material: Tips and tricks

Due to its structure, LaserCork is ideally suited to procesing with a CO2 laser cutting machine an with low laser power. As standard with all new materials, we recommend that you test your settings on a small section of the material prior to creating larger scale applications.  Our top tips for laser cutting LaserCork include:
  • Use a speed between 1 % and 2 % and a frequency of 1000 Hz. Adjust the laser power in increments often to achieve a smoke-free result
