Minutely detailed, as fine as lace - that is paper laser cutting. A highly focused beam of light follows a vector line, vapourising the material. Any organic material can be laser cut. Laser cutting is an amazing opportunity to cut unlimited shapes with no tooling, which means changes can be made at the drop of a hat. ANY shape can be cut.
Laser cutting is great for complex designs and any external and internal shapes can be laser cut. It's great for low to medium volume run lengths and our high speed lasers produce far better results compared with the more common laser plotters.
Quality uncoated materials work best for laser cutting; coated or laminated materials do work fine but if your design is busy some 'smoke milking' may occur. The finish is always better on the underside of sheet.
Minimum space between cuts should be 5 x thickness of your material. We're able to save costs where nesting or tessellation on sheets is possible.
At PaperShapers we use the best equipment available to deliver the quality you need.
