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