Laser cutting is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high-power laser beam to cut flat-sheet materials, such as leather. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line provided in your digital design. The high-precision laser vaporizes a cut line through the leather, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.
Laser engraving leather is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the leather, it engraves the leather surface. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser vaporizes a thin layer of the leather’s surface, exposing what lies beneath. For leather, the result is a darker textured finish.
You can laser cut and engrave your designs for custom leather products using your very own personal factory.
