This tutorial will show you how to cut and engrave on Wood veneer and Trolase thins 0.5mm, as well as cutting Trolase 3.2mm thick.
Engraving materials available at Trotec, browse product range: www.trotec-materials.com
- Wood veneer
- TroLase Thins with double-sided adhesive tape
- TroLase - thickness: 3.2mm
- Speedy 400 120 watt
- 2" lens
- Vacuum table with honeycomb cutting tabletop or acrylic cutting grid
For this application sample you can use any laser machine from the Speedy laser enagraver series.
We suggest keeping the clear film over laminates material if you are only cutting.
Create your own design or use our template. Send it to the laser with the recommended laser parameters given. The parameters might vary depending on the machine used and the available laser power as well as material thickness.

Place the material on the honeycomb cutting table in your laser and cover the rest of the work area to create a stronger vacuum. The parameters can differ depending on the laser machine used and laser power available.
