Can paper burn during laser cutting?
Paper is evaporated like wood, i.e. sublimated. During the cutting process, the paper is worn away in the form of a gas, visible as smoke, at high speed. The smoke transports the heat away from the paper, whereby the material is only minimally thermally burdened. With optimum parameters, Air Assist as well as Table Exhaust, the material can be successfully processed smoke-free without burnt edges and even with the finest contours.
