Why should I buy a laser for marking plastics?

Leather is tough and offers strong resistance to every tool used on it aside from the laser beam. Laser processing is contact-free and produces consistent results without wear and tear. The laser beam melts the material and produces perfectly clean and sealed edges on the surface of the leather.
