Step 2

Step 2: Laser process

Next make the parameter settings. Our suggested parameters vary depending on the laser machine used and the available laser power.

Place the belt on the aluminum grid table in your laser with the belt buckle on the right side. For an optimum engraving result, place the belt parallel to the upper edge at a distance of approx. 1/2 in. Make sure that the leather is straight - the aluminum grid helps with the alignment.

Then cover the remaining working area to create a strong vacuum.

  • Vary the present design according to your taste in different sizes, greyscales and engraving parameters. Depending on the color and type of leather, you will receive additional colored accents.
