Laser cutting MDF 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 MDF, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.
Laser engraving MDF is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the MDF, it engraves the surface of the sheet. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser burns away a thin layer of the MDF surface, creating a precise edge.
You can laser cut MDF and engrave custom designs on the surface by using your very own personal factory.
