Wood engraving - the ecological way of advertising
Wood is a perfect material for laser engraving and laser cutting.
The bundled heat of the laser beam cleanly removes individual layers of the wood surface. Advertising articles made of wood, products made of solid wood or cork can thus be quickly individualised without the addition of chemical dyes.
The laser engraving on wood is especially suitable for ecological promotional products, to meet the ecological sustainable values in all aspects.

Wood engraving is suitable for ecological wooden advertising materials as well as for individual special designs made of wood.
3 natural advantages that burn into wood
1. environmentally friendly
Wood laser engraving is gentle to the workpiece and the environment completely without pollutants. Locally produced, the Eco-advertising stuff like he promises.
From bulk goods to single name engraving offers the wood engraving simply everything.
3. unique by nature
Since wood is a natural product and each piece of wood has an individual grain, also every wood engraving a unique specimen in itself.

Technical details for sustainable wood engraving
In laser engraving of wood, the grain of the wood plays an important role, as it has a decisive influence on the colour and depth of the engraving. Basically, low-fibre wood types are better suited for wood laser engraving, as logos and lettering are easier to read and the engraving image is more beautiful.
Which wood types are suitable for laser engraving on wood?
An engraving on poplar or birch wood becomes relatively bright and appears very subtle due to the low contrast.
In general, low-fibre woods with a relatively even grain, such as beech, oak or cherry, provide very good engraving results that are rather dark and rich in contrast.
Less good engraving results can be achieved with high-fibre and strongly grained wood types such as bamboo.
What effects can be achieved on wooden surfaces using a laser?
During engraving, a laser beam removes the top layer of wood. Depending on the type of wood, the marking is more or less rich in contrast. With a subsequent glaze, the engraving can be emphasized even more.
Even real wood veneers can be marked with the laser.
Can wood be cut with the laser?
Yes – cut-outs can be cut with the laser from wooden plates up to 20 mm thick (depends on laser power), or special shapes can be cut to size.
What are the maximum dimensions of the wood engraving?
The size of the engraving depends on the product to be engraved and its surface finish on the one hand, and on the size of the laser on the other.
Our laser can produce engravings of maximum 150 cm x 300 cm.
Frequently used machine engraving dimensions:
40 cm x 60 cm
130 cm x 90 cm
130 cm x 250 cm
A minimum distance of 1 mm to the edge of the product should be maintained.
In order to still be able to read the engraved writing, the height of the letters should be at least 2 mm.
For rounded surfaces, should use another accessories which usually called Rotary
